The bagged pellets can be bought and stored on a pallet. A customer only buys what he has space to store and then buys more as needed. However, if the pellets are stored far from the pellet stove, hauling the bags to where they are needed may be difficult.

Many people use a silo or bin for storage, although some distributors may supply a storage sack for a fee. Pellets can be collected in a bucket, which reduces the weight to be carried long distances. Some storage systems also come with the ability to deliver the pellets to the stove as needed. Unfortunately, many of the companies that deliver pellets only service their local areas.
