I think the fact I phoned them to express concern that I wanted to make sure as a loyal customer they got first pickings of the seasoned wood swung it, very few turned it down.
I guess that's just the human condition, to want to be valued, remembered and in the loop. It's a good business technique to use it to both of your advantage.

I have the space and like to season my own wood. When I tried to buy a load or two (either unprocessed unseasoned or processed but unseasoned) last April ish, I didn't have much luck. And prices were only a little lower than processed seasoned, if at all... So not really worth it, though I did manage to get a load in the end. It was so wet it's still seasoning, and I'll burn it this winter!

That's interesting, what price were you happy to pay in the end for processed unseasoned wood? (Assuming that's what you found)

IIRC, I paid about 20 quid less for a load of unseasoned wood than I would have paid for seasoned. Not really worth it. I found it very hard even to get a price for unprocessed wood- it seemed to be more trouble for the sellers than just providing processed seasoned wood. I know how much work there is in seasoning and processing as I do it myself whenever I can, so it would need to be a reasonable saving.
