Delivering firewood

Recommended Posts

Interested to know how you deliver your firewood. Im using a double cab pick up but looking for a better solution for time reduction and quantity per load. I sell by the cubic metre. Feel free to send us a picture Cheers

We use a tipping tranist with caged sides. We can hold up to 5 cube, split in eithert 1, 1.5, 2 or 3 m3 sizes. Did look at a trailer, but with small drives and lanes its easier to get a transit in and my wife can drivew!

I always found a trailer to be a  pain in the arse for log deliveries.  A transit size vehicle is perfect if you are selling loose loads

 

Horses for courses, mate. I only run the one vehicle so I don't want the size of a Transit when I'm subbying and the trailer not only suits for delivery/collection(plus it has a better capacity) but will hold its value nicely.

Thats fair enough.  I bought a trailer when my LDV disintegrated.  It got me buy and there was really no where I didnt take it, but it was more difficult at times for sure.  Specially reversing up steep drives with a full load on.
