In sourcing firewood, it’s important you know exactly where the wood came from to determine its quality and suitability. Our team at Best Firewood and Mulch takes the time to guide clients on the market and to help them choose quality products. With this goal in mind, we’re presenting our guide to choosing a local firewood supplier.
Make sure the firewood is purchased locally
One of the mistakes that some homeowners make when buying firewood from a local supplier is not considering the source of the wood. The firewood you buy should be sourced geographically nearby, as well as split on their site. This limits the potential for insects to be spread during transit and means it is exposed to the elements for a shorter time.
Visit the company’s physical site
When you have selected a local firewood supplier, take some time out of your day to visit their supply space and review their processes. You should immediately see the difference between professional companies and those with limited experience in the marketplace. The professional suppliers will be able to provide you with clear information on each piece of wood they provide. They should also be able to answer your questions about the applications for their materials.
Consider pricing carefully
Firewood can become expensive if you don’t have a clear plan for pricing out your purchase. Make sure you understand the differences between the various quality woods on the marketplace and how the quality differences can impact the price. If you’re unsure about the differences, you can call our team at Best Firewood and Mulch directly for more information. We’d be happy to explain how each wood differs and why you might use specific types of wood for each application. Read more about picking the right firewood here.
View their return policy
On some occasions, you might not be happy with the quality of the wood your local firewood supplier provides. In these circumstances, it’s imperative the company has a clear return policy that will allow you to return your wood for a full refund.
