    Woohoo! Two friends came by to help my brother and I put away/stack
    up 3 tons I had in the driveway. Had them delivered
    in June. Now they're all tucked in the garage and on
    the porch. Took us about 45 minutes but we took our time.

    Have to say pelletsales is awesome! Not a single bag damaged. :)

    Two friends, my dad and I moved my 6 tons (CleanFire, 3 torn ~ 1 of which had moisture) last Saturday from the side of my garage to my basement through my bulkheld which was about 20-25 yards away, then stacked them. It took us under an hour and a half. I had borrowed one of my friends kids' slides for the bulkheld stairs and it worked GREAT.

    I got 4 tons from pellet sales...not the brand ordered...and hopefully as good of a brand..but wont know till winter :(

    I have 1 more ton to move.
    1 skid had a ripped open bag thru the plastic on top. so the open back I threw in the stove and burned to check ash content.
    Not much ash so it appears low..
    3rd ton was wet inside of plastic...found small holes on top of the of the stack from a fork trucks fork...dragged over bag ripping a few holes ...
    the whole corner bags all the way to the bottom were wet.
    I took a towel and dried each bag as I restacked them in my garage.
    The 4th ton...which I will move this weekend weather permitting..
    already has 1 bag on the 3rd row up...burst out the corner with wet pellets..so that bag at least is no good..
    dont know the condition/dryness of the other bags.

    So my first experience with pellet sales is certainly less that good.

    Those bags with the water over the outside of the bags..I dont know how much moisture they may have absorbed...
    I havent cut one open yet...
    Any idea what the chance of the bags still being good is??

    8 tons - 4 guys - 60 minutes

    Of course we only had to move the pellets 50' off the truck and into my basement. The truck was able to pull right up to the door in my walkout basement.

    One would assume the consumption of cold adult beverage commenced AFTER the work was done.

    Hmm one might assume yeah, but one friend had to get her kids home
    for dinner, and the other friend just wanted to get home and sip a few
    in his lounge chair by the pool. In light of all that, we settled for ice cold
    Sunny D after the pellets were inside. :coolsmirk:
