Recommended Posts

I am thinking of selling logs by the net next year, anyone know how many 50 x 80 nets to the ton or to the cube?

so it looks to be more profitable to sell by the net compared to the 1ton bags.

On ebay there selling 1ton bags of hardwood for £30 and under which is 20-25 nets, which as nets would sell for £60 - £75

I suspose the only saving you have is the time spent bagging them?

We are selling logs in "barrow bags" from BAG Supplies :: Packaging Suppliers covering the UK . They work out to be 0.2 cubic metres and selling them at £20/bag (£100/cubic metre). The good thing is they can be moved on a sack truck and so can easily be tipped closer to where the customer wants them - or they can keep the bags until next time for a small deposit. This might sound like a bit of a faff but when there's a bit of competition about these little extras go a long way. I reckon we are getting the equivalent of 8 or 9 nets per barrow bag (if nets are retailing at £4 each, £32-£36 worth) and so saving our customers a few quid, also free delivery up to 10 miles when an order is for £60 or more.

Doing it this way means I can use my IW trailer with loading ramp to deliver up to 12 bags at a time
