DONT THINK THE DEALER OR MILL IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR MONEY FOR BIG PROFITS!! they are lucky to make $30 per ton. this does not count the cost of storage yard (PELLETS TAKE A LOT OF SPACE) FORK LIFT People to load your truck LOSS PELLETS WET DAMAGE ect. They many phone calls and email they have to make to be sure pellets get to their yard. I have said this over and over the dealer Pellets are steady price NOT COUNTING TRUCKING it is the cost to get from the pellet mill to your pellet dealer that is NOT CHEEP. Our cost of pellets have gone up very little in the past 5 years. In the last 5 years the COST of TRUCKING has gone from $43 per ton to my current $124 per ton. in the last 60 days we had a $22 per ton increase on trucking.
