The Fire Man Wood Delivery Service, established in 2014 and now boasting over 5000 happy clients, continues to excel in providing superior quality logs with their unique ‘Dry Guarantee’ on all products, plus a reputation for customer service excellence second to none.
Jack Taylor, Managing Director of The Fire Man, offers some important factors to consider when comparing like for like when purchasing firewood:
■ Log moisture content – vitally important if you wish to burn the logs immediately.
■ Size of the logs – most standard fireplace units (enclosed and open) have an average sized opening of 50cms.
■ Weight of a bag/log – don’t be fooled by a heavier log.
■ Number of pieces – some alternative companies sell their firewood by number of pieces. Be sure to count them when they arrive and check for size.
■ Be wary of ‘Bakkie loads” – there are so many different sizes of delivery vehicles.
■ Delivery charges – check for additional charges to your area.
The volume of wood received is really the only transparent measurement to use when comparing like for like. The Fire Man’s standard log size is 28-32cms
long and 8-14cms wide which is the optimum size for economical combustion.
