Can my wood be tipped into my garage?
Generally, a loose volume cannot be tipped all into the garage due to the height restrictions of the tipper truck and a garage door. We do always try and do our best to get as many logs inside as we can – please note, therefore, the garage door may not be able to close.

Payment bank transfer details will be on the invoice with the delivery. Cash or cheques can also be given to the driver. Cheques can also be sent in the post or credit/debit cards through the office landline.
