**THE "DOUBLE GIANT" BAG**
Two Giant Builder's Bags (approx 400 kilos) of seasoned Softwood logs in a single crate designed for delivery outside our own delivery area of 30 miles. The price includes crating and delivery by Palletways anywhere in the UK mainland.
Note:- This is 2 Giant bags placed in a crate measuring about 6' tall in total and weighs nearly half a ton. It is important that you understand our carrier uses 20-30 ton vehicles and is contracted to deliver it to the kerbside, however most drivers will do their best to get the pallet as close as possible to your property as long as the ground is even and not on a slope.
It may well be in certain circumstances you may have to break down the pallet and move the logs yourself by barrow or other means from where Palletways can safely unload them..
**OUR BEST BUY IN LOGS**
Scotland's most sustainable woodfuel.
The obsession with burning hardwoods in stoves has meant that these perfectly good logs have been overlooked.
As they have been properly seasoned they store well, and burn just as well as hardwoods but about 10% quicker.
However, with our price at around 10% cheaper than hardwoods they will still save you money on your log bill.
STORING THE LOGS
How you store these logs after we deliver them is very important. They should be removed from the bags as soon as possible (preferably the same day) and stored in a dry well ventilated place. Do not store these logs in the bag. Always store briquettes in a dry place.
BURNING THE LOGS
For the very best results we thoroughly recommend burning our logs with our briquettes which when combined will produce more heat than any hardwood logs. We recommend using about two thirds log and one third briquette. This way you will get a hotter fire that will last longer. You can buy both cheaper by selecting the Lairds Choice in this section.
If you normally mix logs with coal why not try our briquette logs to replace the coal.
Note: By popular request we now include the smaller off-cuts in the bag as well as whole logs. These do not detract from the amount of good logs in each bag as they are random filled from our processing machine and fill the space left between the larger logs.
This is confirmed by the fact the bags are now at least 10% heavier than they were without the off-cuts.
The value of the off-cuts is first of all in saving the amount of kindling required to get a fire going and secondly for re-kindling a fire that has gone too low to get it going again by simply throwing on a whole log.
To get your fire going, see our selection of firelighters.
THE DRYING PROCESS
Air dried naturally down to between 15% and 20% moisture and cut to between 8" and 9" in length.
Our Woodsure Approved Air-Dried logs are made ready-to-burn using Mother Nature in our latest air drying process.
Cut trees are fully seasoned naturally using only sun and wind in our new open-ended polytunnels where we have seen the overall moisture content down as low as 10-15% before being processed into cut logs resulting in the same moisture content and quality of log as the kiln-dried logs.
Environmental and financial advantage - no kilns involved which produce massive amounts of CO2 and make the logs much more expensive to produce.
Important - Builder's Bag Price Comparison
When comparing prices of a 'builders bag' of logs please be aware. There are a number of different sizes of 'builders bags' on the market and we have discovered many suppliers are using an 80cm x 80cm x 80cm bag.
The reason we refer to our bags as Giant Builders Bags is they are much larger and hold up to over 40% more logs.
When you take this into account you will see you get much more value for money from our Giant Builders Bags.
