My guy will deliver 5 bales. I don't think that he will drive more than 30 miles unless you buy a lot more at once, and he charges more as well.

These are big round bales. He has a tractor trailer with a big flatbed trailer. Gotta have enough of a load to make it worth moving. He's 45 miles northwest of here. Big bales can't be found in my immediate area without paying twice the price and then they aren't as big and often not as nice.

Good hay is hard to find for sure. I am sure that they have to get a full load to make delivery worthwhile. My hay guy doesn't store his hay under a shelter, so if I want it to be rain free, I have to buy all I want when he bales it.

Please check into the small claims court angle for your area. Even without a written receipt, you may still be successful. Did you make a specific cash withdrawal from your bank for the deal? Those records could be used to support your claim. If someone went with you for the money hand off, they can act as witness. If there were phone calls made and/or received, you could get copies of the phone records and show a connection. How did you find out about the hay to begin with? If it was advertised, it can further be used to show the likelihood of a transaction taking place.

Wow... Some brave jacka$$ tried that with me he would realise pretty darn quick he opened he opened Pandora's box from h3ll.
Honestly, make his life just as miserable. Call him daily. See if the local cops can do anything. Re-mention court. Tell everyone and their dog he is a thief so he can't sell a hay bale for 100 miles.

Been there, done that, not once but twice. Really nice local farmer; he put an ad in the paper saying that he would be happy to store hay for people year round in his barn and deliver it at regular intervals as long as it was paid for in advance.

Perfect! We have money in summer but are always broke in winter, and had no place to store quantities of hay. So we bought a year's worth of hay for two horses (700 bales of orchard grass). At first all was well and he'd deliver once a month, but then... we had to start picking it up, and then.. well, it was over in that barn, or across that field, and then there was no hay at all. He said he would love to give us our money back, but he didn't have it, so could we please wait until next year? Oookkaayyy....

So the next year, he showed us the hay, and we bought enough more to cover the coming year, and guess what? No Hay!!! Now we've moved, and so are driving over an hour to consistently get no hay. Finally he said he just had no hay, and please don't call until April, when he thought he could get some. So, I double bought hay all winter, second winter in a row, and when I called the last day in April, he said that if he'd known it was me, he wouldn't have answered the phone.

THEN I found out he absolutely had hay, and was selling it locally. He sold a pile to my sister, not realizing we were related. He also left his hay elevator in my sister's yard. He still owed us over $700.00 in hay, so, guess who has the hay elevator now?

Never pay until they get to your property with the hay. And... I would call the police to get my money back.
