We usually need firewood in bulk because it is meant for meeting insulation needs during the entire winter season. It is very difficult to find a firewood merchant in the middle of winter with adequate stock. Therefore, it is advisable to make your preparations around a month before hard winter season arrivals. It’s not like choosing any random firewood without checking the quality standards. Different woods have different properties from the perspective of fuel. On the basis of molecular structure, we classify firewood into two categories i.e.
1) Hard firewood
2) Soft firewood
Hardwood is the first preference of everyone because of its excellent combustion features. However, there are many factors you need to consider before investing in stock of bulk firewood in NSW.
Most convenient way to buy firewood?
Don’t waste your time searching for firewood from the local market if you have an online delivery option? Yes, firewood delivery through online orders has become common in many places. Search online for the nearest firewood suppliers who can deliver adequate stock within the expected time span. It’s like shopping from any random E-Commerce portal. You just need to choose the fire wood type, quantity and place order. Undoubtedly the online delivery system has simplified the firewood sale purchase process but you have to be aware of some important factors related to quality concerns.
Tips to order the best quality firewood
1) Check available firewood species
The wood species you are choosing decide the quality. Not all trees produce good quality firewood. You need to gain information about the local species that are ideal for burning as fuel. Always choose ethically sourced firewood from abundantly available tree species like red gum and ironbark. Make sure that the tree you are preferring produces hardwood. Softwood is an inferior fuel type because it burns very fast and also produces low quality fire. It is advisable to gain some information about the native tree species before communicating with a merchant of bulk firewood for sale.
2) Low moisture level
Whether it is hardwood or softwood, low moisture level must be the primary preference. If your firewood is containing moisture more than 25%, consider it unfit for utilising as fuel. High water content in the wood produces more smoke and less flame. We recommend buying a moisture metre to check the percentage while receiving the order.
3) Firewood size
Is it convenient to use as indoor and outdoor fuel? The convenience of usage depends on firewood size. 16 inches is a standard length of fire wood pieces. Firewood logs longer than this may create trouble while burning in the indoor fireplaces. Also, small pieces require less seasoning time.
4) Communicate with all suppliers
Don’t place your order before communicating with all suppliers available in the locality. Some merchants put firewood box for sale at discounted rates. Don’t miss the opportunity of promotional offers. Visit the website of every firewood seller in your area. Compare their prices and firewood types to get an idea of average price and best deal.
5) Fast delivery
We prefer choosing an online seller of native location for the fastest delivery. Also, communicate with them to clarify all queries regarding delivery and quality concerns.
In case of dissatisfaction with the quality or you received wrong firewood, there should be an option of return and replacement. Always prefer quality over quantity because inferior quality firewood is completely useless no matter how much stock you have.
