We use Pallet track to deliver your order.

I've just ordered, what happens now?

Will the driver carry the nets to my property?
No, this is a guaranteed kerbside delivery. It arrives on a pallet and is wheeled off a tail lift lorry with a pump truck to a flat safe area at the discretion of the driver. Your order comes on a 1.2m wide pallet, so usually cannot be wheeled through a normal gate Please make sure you read the terms of delivery at the checkout.
Can I get next day delivery?
At present no, when you make your order please click the calendar and it will show the closest available date in your area. It is usually 2-3 working days from point of order.
Can I collect?
Collection is not available, however we can deliver on a day you choose at the checkout.
Can the driver put my wood over my wall?
We deliver using an 18T tail lift lorry with a pallet pump truck, we do not have access to lorries with a crane to do this.
Can I call and get specific time for delivery?
Standard free delivery is between 8am and 6pm. We are unable to contact drivers to find out a time slot if you have selected free delivery.
What if I am not home when delivery is attempted?
If you are not in to sign for the delivery, the driver will not leave your order unless you have ticked the box at checkout that allows the delivery to be accepted without signature. If you have not ticked this box and you are not in, the driver will attempt to contact you on the number you provided. If we cannot contact you the delivery will be returned to the depot and you will be contacted to arrange an alternative day. There will be a £50 redelivery charge if this happens so please make sure you are in on the day you have chosen or have ticked the box at checkout.
Can the driver take the pallet?
We are sorry the courier can't take the pallet away. However it does make good kindling in your fire.
What is the average moisture content of kiln dried logs?
Our average moisture content of kiln dried logs is 15%, but kiln dried is classed as anything under 20%.
What is the best wood?
Ash is known as the best for clean burning and high heat output, as it is the most calorific. Oak is also a very good choice due to a slightly longer burn time due to its density and slightly lower heat output. The difference is personal preference between Ash and Oak.
