Earl to coin an old military phrase "As You Were " I should have said call for three weeks on the Days Listed as Days of Operation !
i did miss that. but the post you quoted was a reply to dollarbill.
just me venturing a guess as to his question of "what is up with SIB" not rturning calls
no worries, dollarbill. (slls either)
i guess it remains to be seen what it will cost me to stock up again.
but even with the pellets in town at TSC, it would be ridiculous to ferry 5 tons back here in my subaru.
there are a couple other sources around here.
but getting them delivered to my driveway is a big plus for me.
Earl when he surfaces soon I'd hope it maybe a good surprise ! I agree delivery to the door is a nice thing especially that far North !
Lowes is not a vendor of Maine Woods Pellet.
When Steve delivered to me, I still had 1 ton from last year, local dealer. He asked what they charged for delivery and I told him, he may have started thinking.
We have seen many in the past mistake Maine Choice for MWP.
i don't want to call SIB at such a busy time. but if anyone is already going to call him, i would love to know what the new pricing and drop rates they announced are going to be.
News Flash Ashley from SIB called i guess from the sounds of things they are revamping and now going to charge for delivery but still a good deal only 15 bucks to my home half way between Lewiston and Augusta! Today they only had MWPs hardwood mix in stock was good to hear alls well !
I personally don't know how he survived this long without charging for delivery. $15 is a bargain.
Finally had room in the garage to be able to store this seasons pellets. I was late ordering. I got my delivery yesterday (in between storms). I had ordered a while ago waiting for a pallet of LaCrete's, but the La Crete's according to SIB (Ashley) are hard to come by. No Okies, and no MWP softwood. Since the MWP hardwood mix has been burning good in my Quad Castile this year I opted for 3 tons of the MWP hardwood mix.
SIB is right out straight delivering.
I did not see the price increase nor the delivery charge, but if it's only $15 a delivery that's still very good considering what the others in my area are asking. Sometimes I wonder what's the feasability of purchasing a trailer to haul my own pellets even 1 ton at a time.
Another thing SIB has going for them is that all the pellets are stored indoors. On my last trip to Wally World the MWPs were moved from inside the store to of all places the outside/unroofed garden center without the factory rain covers. There was even a great advertisement next to them a rolling cart heaped with bloated pellet bags. I should have gone back a taken a photo to show Scot at MWP what MWPs look like at Wally world.
It would take a lot of $15 delivery fees to pay for a trailer.
SIBs needs to learn what they are selling(and correct their website). Soo many people come on here and talk about "MWP hardwood blend" when it is actually a hardwood/softwood blend(65%/35%). Pet peeve of mine I guess.
From SIB's website:
subsailor your right I took a quick web trip to TSC, and was quite surprised at the prices for a trailer that would carry a 1 ton payload.
I'm sure they know what they are selling...
FYI the 15 bucks is to Winthrop each town is differant ! Ashley has a chart and thats what mine is yours will be according to where you live ! Im sure a trip to the County is going to be more !
he's just a stone's throw from you.
hmmm. i wonder if 5 tons is still his max load? unless he's running a different setup, that was the max he could bring me at one time.
maybe spring prices on the actual pellets will drop some .
in any event, i expect to still be buying from him.
i'm sure it will still be my best deal. at $10 to $20 more per ton at tsc, and me with no truck.
Earl being a Loyal repeat customer Im sure will count for something ! Merry Christmas !
yeah. he is a very fair businessman. i have no problem whatsoever paying what he deems needed for the trip.
just as long as he keeps making it every year. LOL!
merry christmas to you as well : )
