    Sure, just have them drop off 23 tons in your driveway!

    Holy moses! We have to be getting a royal screwing paying $250-$290 a ton in Pittsfield Ma.
    That`s quite a price spread. We need competition badly.

    It's only good if you buy 12 or 23 tons of pellets. I don't know about you, but they'd probably absorb too much moisture over the course of two years.

    Plus, if the pellets are crap, you're out 162x23 dollars + shipping + you have to dispose of 23 tons of crap.

    Not a bad deal on the 12 ton load, but you'd have to find a few people to go in on it with you - not to mention the logistics of splitting and storing 12 tons of pellets!

    Good points made but finding 2-3 others to split cost and pick up their share of 12 tons at that low price wouldn`t be hard to manage.

    Wow! Does anyone have more details? Has anyone burned them? It's only about 20 miles from my house. I'll give them a call and find out what I can. Thanks for the heads up!

    I talked to them already. One catch to this. They don't provide a forklift to remove the pallets from the truck.

    Doesn`t make a lot of sense to offer a product for sale with delivery and no way of off loading them.
    1 or 2 or even 3 tons wouldn`t be awfully troublesome by hand but 12-23 tons?

    At those prices the dealers and resellers will
    be the ones ordering by the trailer.

    You could always play reseller, buy 23 tons, sell to the neighbors at $200/ton :D If you only keep 3 tons for yourself, thats $436 in your pocket (after paying for your own pellets :D)

    Been quoting a few prices to you MA and VT area burners. Right now shipping is $3.00 to $3.25 a mile out east. No one for the Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana area wants to go out east with their trucks because there is no freight coming back. The BIG companies will do it because they are only paying their drivers around $125 a day. Good luck on getting pellets close to last years prices. I am still at $190 a ton in N/E Ohio.
