Kiln Dried Logs in Crates
Ordering your kiln dried logs in crates has its advantages. Because of the neat stacking process you get considerably more logs than you would in a loosely filled 'tonne bag'. One of the main reasons our customers choose crates is because they offer the best value for money and all our crates are tightly packed full of premium kiln dried hardwood.! We sell 3 different sizes of crates.

Where and how to store your crate of logs
Your premium kiln dried logs in crates are delivered by lorry to your home. The crates are built upon a pallet type foundation and are secured by various strips of wood to hold them in place. Your designated driver will lower the crate via a tail lift on the lorry and then wheel them using a pallet trolly to your desired location. It's down to the drivers discretion where to put your crate but if you are available on the day of delivery you'll be able to communicate with them and hopefully store them somewhere mightily convenient for you. So, on to where and how to store your crate, here's a few suggestions from us.
#1 In a wood store
This is the most popular method among our customers. If you can get the driver to wheel your crate to as near to your log store as possible, this will save you time and energy moving them from A to B. If you need to transport them more than a few metres we recommend using a wheelbarrow.
#2 In the crate
Your kiln dried logs already come beautifully stacked in their crate, so if you don't need to move them and re-stack them then why bother!? Our crates are delivered to you shrink wrapped and covered with a plastic covering to keep them dry. If you can encourage the driver to wheel them into an inside space such as a garage this is ideal as it gives them extra protection from the wet outdoors, but using a tarpaulin will also keep them dry.
#3 In your house
Kiln dried logs can look beautiful when stored by a woodburner or fireplace. Many popular home and decor accounts highlight how they can be used as decorative features wonderfully enhancing the room. However, you will probably need a second place to store the majority of the logs due to the sheer volume that you'll receive from our regular through to monster crates.
