    Wood Supply 3rd Oct 17 at 3:43 PM
    After two bits of information

    First can anyone tell me of hardwood suppliers who will deliver to Armagh City?

    Secondly, whatís the going price for wood in your area
    I used to be indecisive,but now I'm not so sure.

    Not hard to pay, good rep and cheap prices.

    If you have a sawmills close at hand sometimes they are a good option. Sawmill close to me sells you a builders bag (1 tonne bag) for around £35. Last year, I bought two bags and am still working off it, so don't know what the current rate is though.

    We have a sawmill close by, McKinneys. Bought a builders bag from them last year but forget the price but honestly I wouldn't go back to them their blocks were all shapes and sizes and they didn't do delivery
    I have been making a few inquiries and £55- £60 seems to be a guide ptice

    Just to let you know how Iím getting on. Iíve been in contact with a supplier who sells 12 nets of birch at £74, 24 nets of birch at £134, 12 nets of ash at £76, 24 nets of ash at £138. He states that thee nets actually work out cheaper than the builders bags and that 16 nets would fill a dumpy bag (these are kiln dried)

    However, Iíve been looking at heat logs for wood burners and see that Home Bargins sell a Verdo Wood 576 Briquettes (Pallet) Inc. Home Delivery at £279 A bit of research seems to suggest these types of briquettes are better overall value than logs, Iíll try a six pack at £2.79 just to see how effective they are. Just have to see if they sell pallets in NI. Hopefully my local Home Bargins will stock the six packs

    Iím not having much luck 😫. Visited my local Home Bargins today and they donít seem to stock them. Itís a new store so maybe the full range of goods hasnít appeared yet. I have contacted Home Bargins asking if theyíll becoming to Armagh

    Saverbuyer what do you think of the logs are they as effective as the sales patter?

    I honestly think they're great. You get a good couple of hours heat from one log. I used mine with some smokeless.

    Well my local Home Bargins are not stopping them - Yet.

    Reading their web site closer I discovered that you could order on line and collect in store, so I ordered two in the hope that they just won’t send two briquettes but a full box. So if good I can buy more, if of no use then it’s just over a fiver that I’ve lost. I’ll let you know what’s happenin.

    Unfortunately mines a wood burner not a multi burner so smokeless would be out
