We try to be as flexible as possible - but with our number of staff 24/7 is not feasible! LFS is normally open between the times below, but it is always safer to give us a call beforehand. Sometimes during the indicated opening hours LFS needs to close the gate for health & safety or security reasons. In this case please park outside the gate and call the number displayed beside the gate.

Due to special reasons at the discretion of LFS, deliveries also may take place during bank holidays, evenings and on weekends.

Sales Units

So many different requirements and needs - LFS has a tailor made solution

Our customers have very different requirements. The range goes
 

  • from small quantities of logs to support the main heating system or to make the living room cosy or to enjoy now and then a fire with a dram. 
    In this case our standard combinations of services and products are probably a good solution.
    E.g. softwood, length 300mm in bulk bag with slings, seasoned ....
     

  • to large quantities for those customers to whom firewood is just an economical and ecological way to heat homes. These may be old or modern builds - from cottages to mansions, or district heating schemes. 
    For large quantities, handling plays a prominent role. Therefore, it is well worth looking at other sales units to make your life easier.
    LFS has sales units or formats to meet these requirements. You can see typical characteristics listed below.
    If you want to know how you can reduce your heating bill, have special requirements or a different idea or a question to find the best solutuion, then please feel free to contact us.

​[1] ​The maximum quantity may be reduced depending on the weight (type of wood and moisture content) and / or the possibility to manoeuvre the truck with trailer.


Smaller quantities required?
 

If our minimal quantities are to big for you, then you have the following possibilities:
 

  • Ask neighbours if they need LFS-products to get the required minimum quantity

  • Please ask for the price of small quantities in a combined delivery for more customers where LFS is arranging a delivery date (this option may not always be available)

  • If you can not order the minimum quantity for your distance, a small, additional delivery fee calculated as follows applies:
     

    • D = Delivery ​distance

    • Q = Quantity of bags or m3

    • R = Rate per mile (£1.60)

      Applicable delivery fee = (D - 5 x Q) x R

      Example:
      You live 22 miles from Linnorie Park, Huntly AB54 4PT and you would like to get 3 bags. The fee calculates 

      (22 - 5 x 3 bags) x 1.60 = 7 x 1.60 = £11.20 incl. VAT

 

  • The exact date and time for the delivery will be mutually agreed between the customer and LFS.

  • Severe weather conditions may make a delivery impossible or may affect the product quality (rain for seasoned firewood). Therefore LFS will get in contact with the customer to discuss appropriate solutions. 

  • Delivery can be executed by LFS or subcontractors employed by LFS.

  • First time customers are kindly asked to be present when the first delivery takes place to show exactly where to products should be dropped or stored (when this additional service was agreed).

  • Customers ensure accessability for the proposed transport vehicle and that no obstruction is preventing a efficient and safe delivery. If LFS cannot gain access to the place of unloading additional costs may be incurred.
