    So I see these folks are going ever lower on pricing in the new year.
    LG Granules and Cleanfire delivered to my area both about $225-239 ton for 6-6.5 tons... they were $259ish a few weeks ago and $279-299 this past fall .
    Hope the pricing stays low until spring when I have room to stock back up.

    Hope real pellet distributers / retailers can stay in business as prices fall, I would hate to HAVE TO buy pellets at the big boxes.


    Skids Tons Price/ton Price
    1st skid 1 1.3 $273.90 $356.07
    Additional 4 5.2 $213.90 $1,112.28

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Totals 5 6.5 $1,468.35
    Average Price per ton $225.90

    It's likely that any large seller will reflect the "market" price......inventories are fairly high right now.
    Might be a good time for folks to stock up for the rest of the winter. Oil prices are heading higher and pellets usually follow sometimes.

    Didn't woodpellets have some sort of price guarantee last fall?

    Dougsey,

    I am quite sure that you are correct.

    I remember seeing a "Guaranteed lowest price" of the season or year or . . . . .

    I had done an early buy in January, before that statement, but was watching prices, but do not remember the exact wording.

    Anyone????????

    I did a price comparison and found I would save 8 dollars on 2 tons from last month. They raised their first ton price and delivery. I would save more per ton from my local guy in town, that's my opinion.

    Sounds like good advice and I'll take advantage of an opportunity to get some of the pellets I like best if they are available at a lower price.

    Maybe I'm being too inflexible, but I wonder if it isn't better to find a rule and stick to it long term? For example, it seems that late spring and early summer have the lowest price points on average. So, it might be smartest to buy then for the whole next season, assuming I can plan on buying annually over a five to ten year cycle. (It's like dollar cost averaging when you invest.)

    Thoughts?

    Make sure the pellets you are getting from woodpellts.com are good quality and burn good in YOUR stove. I have seen some of the pellets from them, one being Michigan brand wood pellets they are junk! At least a large coffee can of fines per bag and very soft pellets that fall apart. After 1/2 ton they had so many fines they locked up the auger in a harman PF100 furnace and burnt the aug. motor out. If you get them and find them not to be so good, good luck on returning them...

    I you look at my post I was figuring on 6 to 6.5 tons delivered, at that point the delivery and first ton average out to lower $$$. If your looking at 2 ton, not a very good deal.
    I too am hoping my local dealers follow suit in the spring so I can support them by buying a quality pellet at a decent price.
