Does anyone know the story with the Coal Warehouse outlet in Clontibret. Can you collect from there?

Oh no I won't! I will certainly buy coal from these guys again, but this time, I will arrange the delivery time for when the minor Dhars are at home.

That's what I usually burn too. I asked this question when ordering yesterday and was told that most coal comes from the same source and is then graded in yards in the UK bagged and exported. The lad I was chatting with said that the Premium coal at €8 a bag was a good quality coal with great heat and the €10 bag was a blend of this coal and a "hotter" coal which needed to be mixed as it was too hot for stoves.
I explained that Id a boiler stove running 9 rads and he reckoned that the €8 bag was plenty good for what I wanted.
Give them a buzz if unsure as they are very helpful and not just trying to make a sale.

hope this helps

I love how Donegal is the dearest delivery option when it would be the shortest run....really rubbing it in there, as they know the coal is a good bit cheaper than across the border

The coal seems to be better quality than I was previously getting manly because the pieces are bigger and hold more energy per piece.
I spoke to the owner of O'Neills in the north who supply the coal and got a nice family history of over 100 years of being a coal wholesaler and I can say for sure there is nothing to worry about the quality because he gave me a list of his customers in the south and they are already probably bagging the coal you are paying 20 euro for. I've already given away half the pallet to my neighbors, i can see people making a few quid on this if they want to organize a neighborhood delivery for 12 euro a bag even.
What about VAT and Carbon Tax who pays that?
NA in Northern Ireland so who is registered down here to pay?
Lots of stuff cheaper in North if you dont pay tax

Delivery is not by the coal company themselves. It is by a courier company called Ace who by the phone numbers are based in Dublin. Maybe they collect from NI and go to a base to deliver.

Could any of you who ordered be able to tell me can you pick a delivery day?

Ordered Monday, delivery organised for tomorrow & Pallet landed today. Does that answer your question ?

Is it in NI bags or Southern bags, I am sure Ace would not want customs asking questions and stopping vans.

Is this why the customer deals with Ace? I would imagine in the event of any issue, it's the customer that has 'imported' the coal. The coal merchant has not had any involvement with delivery.
