Wholesale kiln-dried log supplier wanted

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a company who can supply 1 and 2 cubic metre crates/pallets of kiln-dried hardwood in large quantities (i.e. shipping container amounts at a time).

 

I've spoken to two or three UK suppliers but they're quoting me prices (per crate) that any member of the public could get from most online suppliers which leaves me with no profit margin if I am to price competitively. I need proper wholesale prices for proper wholesale quantities.

 

If you think you could supply, or know of someone who could, please PM me; I'd love to hear from you and maybe we could strike a deal. Many thanks.

Hi, we are based in Lithuania, exporting 30 containers per month to UK.

Production time - 2 weeks

Delivery door-to-door takes from 7 to 14 days.

 

Email me with ZIP codes if interested in pricelist.

Storing large amounts of Kiln Dried wood may be an issue. The moisture content is likely to rise. There's an interesting thread running on this topic.

nobody in the UK is going to compete with European prices when they pay their workforce 250 euro a month and all the other costs involved at similar levels.

I tried a load from a company in Penrith that apparently does a lot of wholesale "approx 1 cubic metre bags of kiln dried hardwood"

Actually 0.7 cubic metres of hardwood reading 30% on the outside and 40%+ on the inside.

You live and learn!

Nobody in the U.K. can compete on price and quality when your buying in precut / kiln dried firewood. Either cut it/dry it yourself and make more money or buy it from the Baltic's

Dealt with the same con artists! Apparently sells thousands of tonnes a year and has 4 glen farrow kilns on the go. Probably doesn't care if he gets bad publicity with all the RHI he gets.

You can see the huge piles of trees in his yard on google maps!

Not only us then! He said he sells thousands of cubic metres and has never had any complaints!

The stuff was complete garbage.

Said it had been in the kilns for 7, 24 hour days. If that's the case the glen farrows much be useless! I can produce that stuff in 12 hours!

From the sounds of it speaking to a few people he's a London office boy with pots of cash to throw at machinery but doesn't have a clue
