What's the most you would pay for pellets and delivery?

Up here I have pay a lot for everything, including pellets. NOT including delivery i pay 300 per ton for good pellets I.e. white lightening or dry creek. Cubes go for 330 per ton. I have Gs here for 209 at the box store.
Delivery runs around 65 bucks, so I avoid it and haul what I can myself.
Next year I might try to get 3 tons of granules for 283 per ton, plus the 65 delivery charge total. works out to about 300 without the hassle. Then grab a ton of Gs at the box store for the shoulder and be all set. 1100 for the season.
Most of the places in Southern MD are charging between $245-289 plus $35-80 for delivery...That's for Power Pellets and O'malley's. I'm not liking either of those.
Around here Magic Spark/Pro Pellets are $189/ton and Somersets are $219/ton. The dealer I get them from charges $20/ton for delivery.
I need to find a deal like that! I might try the O'Malley's since I found someone selling it for $188 +$35 delivery for each ton.
I would grab omalleys for that price. Here they are over 300.
I don't know anything about the pellets but that sounds like a reasonable deal for any pellet.
Do they burn clean and hot?
Hey Mommy, I'm in So Md also, where did you find that price?
That price was at Wood Floors plus. 410- 636-9663
They also sell Power Pellets (I personally don't like those) and Greenways. I think the Greenways are $245. Have you tried those?
BTW, TSC are selling Lignetics for $219 but if you need delivery it's around $120....ridiculous.
Near Waldorf? Check the inventory
Seems Power pellets and O'malleys are from the same plant. Sisters as we call them. Most likely the same pellet in a different bag.
HD didn't have 2 tons. They only had less than 80 bags, first come first serve. No delivery.
I didn't run enough yet to know how clean they are, but they are hotter than the green supremes I am running now. I pay 209 for the gs. As I say I would buy and use those pellets at that price.
I find lumber yards (not HD, Lowes, etc) that sell pellets generally don't charge much for delivery. The two places closest to me (1 is a good half hour away) charge between $16-20 whether it's 1 ton or a boom truck load.
I wouldn't pay more than $225 for a ton of pellets in today's market taking into account current natural gas prices.
As for shipping - I wouldn't pay anything. I enjoy hooking up the trailer with my 3yr old and going out and getting them myself.
The southern states store in Tappahannock sells o'malleys for 260 ton and theyre just a few miles from the plant ,doesn't make sense.
A number of forum members have burned them in the past and have REALLY liked them. Wish I could get them here, but haven't seen any in 2 yrs.
As always, buy 3-4 bags to test first.
My wife sez I'll pay whatever I have to as long as it's not more than 20% more than oil.
$210/ton and what is delivery
I paid $280 a ton delivered for Granueles LGs last spring. Good middle of the road pellet.
