    on my pellet delivery today. Finally got my 4 tons of Somersets that were ordered a month ago.

    I had 5 bags remaining from the 1 1/2 tons that were ordered last year. I should be ready now for the heating season.

    Thanks! Probably not the best looking stack around but it's gonna have to do. ==c

    The pellets were $197 a ton.

    This is the first time I have ever paid to have pellets delivered. I was charged $50 for the 4 tons.

    The delivery guy used the motorized pallet jack to place two of the pallets right where they needed to be. The other 2 pallets were placed about 5 ft away. It saved me a lot of time and sweat only having to hand stack 2 tons instead of all 4.

    Ouch! The place I buy from charges a flat rate delivery fee of $10 whether you buy 1 ton or ten, and they drop them right at my bulkhead door.

    50 for the first, + 10 for every additional is common in these parts. 4 tons = 80.

    good deal.

    If anyone is considering delivery, you might want to ask your local Lowes. My understanding is that Lowes is switching to a national rental company to manage their loaner trucks. They are in the process of switching now, so the loaners aren't available. My Lowes charges $65 for delivery. I asked if they could take anything off that and their response was free delivery. I was happily surprised!

    It certainly seemed like I was not the first to ask.

    The Local Lowes quit handling my preferred pellets which are Somersets. I had to go to a different source which is 25 miles away.
