As the weather changes and it gets colder outside, families are starting to turn on those fireplaces. When the time comes to purchase the necessary wood, there are often several different companies to call. Most offer quality wood that can be delivered to the home. But before making a purchase, here are several questions, frequently asked by customers, that can help you get all the information you need to make a decision.
What is the minimum order for wood?
Some families know they are going to need a lot of wood to get them through the winter. Others are only interested in buying a minimal amount. Make sure to ask how much wood a person must buy from one of the Firewood Suppliers in order to have it delivered to the home. Sometimes companies will allow a smaller order but may charge a delivery fee.
Does the wood come cut?
Make sure that the wood that is delivered comes cut. This is important as it saves a family a lot of time if the wood is already cut and ready to stack until it is needed. If it isn’t cut, consider asking if this is a service that costs extra, helping to pin down the exact cost of the purchase.
Is seasoned wood available?
Seasoned wood is dried out so that the moisture content is low. When used in the fireplace inside the home, it reduces the amount of smoke that the fire creates, offering families a more comfortable environment. It doesn’t matter if the wood is used inside or outside, less smoke is always appealing. Seasoned wood may cost a little extra but is usually well worth the cost.
Is there any benefit to paying cash?
Sometimes Firewood Suppliers offer discounts if their customers pay in cash. Because they are not being charged a fee for processing a debit or credit card, they pass this savings on to customers. Even if this is not highly advertised, it makes sense to ask about this option. Paying in cash may save some money and reduce the cost of purchasing firewood for outside or inside the home.
