I ordered and "paid" for 26 tons of New England hardwood pellets from a local vendor back on May 16, 2008 for $215/ton delivered. Myself and two friends pitched in for the purchase and New England Wood Pellets were supposed to deliver them direct to my business the first week in June. Well, its July 16th and they are still not here. I called the vendor several times and also New England Wood Pellets themselves. I was told by NEWP (Allison) that they have no idea (can you imagine?) when I will be receiving them. All I was told is "possibly" in November. Well run business, eh? I was then told by the vendor that Pelletsales.com bought out NEWP and they are holding stock until the fall when pellets are supposedly going to be sold for $300+ per ton. I was also told that NEWP has over 200,000 tons of pellets in stock. I dont know how true this is because right now its just hearsay but its making sense in my particular case. I was wondering if anyone else had any information about the buyout or if they had issues getting large quantities of pellets. This is no different than the oil companies greed. I am beside myself right now. If this is true, I will never buy from pelletsales.com or NEWP ever again and will go out of my way to discourage others from dealing with these whores. Lets stick together in here because I think we're going to get porked by these greedy businesses.
