How to prepare your timber for collection
In order to get maximum return for your timber we need to be able to get at it and
load it efficiently. Articulated lorries do not travel well across fields even in
the dry and lorry drivers can get very grumpy when they are asked to load what looks
like a dropped box of matches.
Now, I’m not saying your timber has to be presented so well that you can hang wallpaper
on it but we will need it to be stacked neatly in order for us to be able to load
it. It also needs to be cut to the correct length. 3 meters is the ideal length but
4.5 meters is ok also. What we don’t want is a spread of lengths within the same
stack, this makes it very awkward to load, reduces payload and is often dangerous
when on the road.
