Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

What are the differences between the various types of wood briquettes and heat logs?

Pini-Kay wood briquettes burn the hottest and contain the least moisture. For this reason it is the only type of briquette suitable for a wood burning cooker.

All the types of briquettes have been thoroughly tested and perform well in all types of appliances. The choice depends mostly on your taste! If you are happy to use brick shaped briquettes, then the RUF Heat Logs are a good choice. They are also very compact to store. For a more natural look, try the Round Eco Logs – these are round and look great in an open fire, much like real logs.

If you’d like to discuss your requirements in more detail, we are happy to chat on 020 30020359 or if you’d rather read some materials, detailed information is available in our Wood Briquette and Heat Log Comparison Guide.

Can you mix different products on one pallet?

We can mix two types of briquettes on one pallet (for example 480 kg of type 1 and 480 kg of type 2). Also, we can mix one type of briquettes and one type of kiln-dried logs. To see some of the available options of these mixed pallets please click here: Mixed Pallets. The maximum weight of products delivered on one full pallet is 960 kg. Please contact us if your desired option is not listed for a quote.

How many kiln-dried logs are there in one crate?

Approximately 350-400 logs in a 1.2m3 crate and 750 – 850 logs in a 2.4m3 crate.

What are the differences between different types of firewood you offer?

Please consult our Kiln-Dried Logs Comparison Guide for detailed information on the differences between different types of firewood available in our store.

What VAT rate is included in the price?

5% for domestic use. If ordering for re-sale or business use, 20% rate applies. Please contact us for a quotation if you are purchasing for business use.

Can you deliver my order on a specific date?

The standard economy delivery is a 2/3 business day service. The delivery courier calls you to arrange a suitable date and time for delivery. In most of the UK, excluding the Hebrides and far north and west of Scotland, we offer free named day delivery. After you add a product to your shopping basket, please tick the box in the Delivery section in the middle of the page to select your desired delivery date. If this option is not offered, or if you do not see a choice of dates after ticking the box, please call us on 020 3002 0359 and we will explain options available. In the northern Highlands, we are able to offer a named day delivery on certain days of the week only because there is less than a daily service to some areas. Please contact us to discuss your options. Unfortunately specific day deliveries cannot be arranged in the Hebrides and some areas of Western Scotland, but we our our courier will inform you in advance of the arrival date of your order.

Do you offer next working day delivery?

We can also provide next working day delivery for £10. Please select this option under ‘Delivery rates’ when placing your order. The cost of weekend deliveries varies but is normally around £40. To arrange a weekend delivery, please select this option at checkout or contact us.

We need to have your order in by 2pm on a given day for it to be processed for dispatch that same day.

Will you carry the ordered goods into my house/garden/shed?

Delivery is contracted to kerbside only. This means the nearest flat, hard, level place to your property. However, drivers will normally move your goods to the nearest point accessible by a flat and level surface, even if this is inside your garage or shed. Please note that this is at the driver’s discretion. The delivery driver is not insured to enter your property, unpack and carry your order into your property.

I want to buy a pallet of your wood briquettes but I cannot accept the pallet because of a gravel driveway at my property. How can you help me?

Most of our orders will arrive on a pallet and be delivered to the nearest flat, hard and accessible location to your property. This is known as a ‘kerbside delivery’. Please see the previous question for more information.

Whilst every effort will be made to bring the pallet as close as possible to your property, in some cases there may be obstructions such as slopes, gravel paths or uneven driveways and the pallet may need to be left some distance from your property. In these cases, you can make delivery easier if you order a heavy duty sack truck which you can buy along with the pallet for the price of only ₤14.99 – that’s a £39.99 value!. To order, please open the detail page of your desired product and look for a tick box next to different product sizes and prices.

This sack truck is sized 35 x 40 x 130 cm when assembled and easily moves up to 325kg in one go from the pallet to your store. The sack truck if ordered will be delivered to you at least a day in advance of the delivery of your pallet. Allow additional 2-3 days for delivery where this option is selected. Limit one per customer please.

If you require further advice regarding any aspect of delivery, please contact us and we will be pleased to advise.

Can you deliver my order using a Hi-Ab or crane over a fence or up an incline?

Hi-Abs and cranes are expensive professional equipment. We are able to arrange delivery on a Hi-Ab for most of the UK at extra cost. Guideline cost for this option is approx. £200 per delivery regardless of the number of pallets ordered. For example, for an order of four pallets, the additional cost for using a Hi-Ab to unload the products to your property will be £50 per pallet. Dimensions of Hi-Ab arms vary – please contact us to discuss your options. For orders of 1-2 pallets, in most cases hand delivery on a van will be more economical. Please contact us for a quote.

I work / live near the delivery location but will not be there all day. Will the delivery company call me so I can meet them?

Yes, we can ask the delivery company to call you. Alternatively, we can call you on the morning of delivery day to advise the delivery window, or arrange booked in delivery (see above). Please call us on 020 30020359 or send us a note with your order to any special delivery requirements.

Will you let me know what day the delivery is?

Yes we would be happy to do this for you. Please send us a note with your order or contact us by telephone or email.

Just wondered if lorry delivered full pallet would manage to put the pallet up my drive? it's s large driveway big enough for five cars.

A full pallet weighs 1000 kg and cannot be moved up a slope on a pallet truck. The couriers we use are very competent and will deliver to the nearest accessible location.

We live at the end of a small road; how will I know you have access?

Let us know before you order and we can check this for you, if possible we will arrange a smaller vehicle for your delivery.

We live up a tight farm track. The 7.5-tonne truck would struggle to get up, but I would like to order a full pallet of RUF oak briquettes.

The smallest vehicle size to deliver a full pallet is a 12 tonne vehicle. In some areas, 7.5 t vehicles are available but the weight on the tail lift is limited to anywhere from 250 – 500kg.

In some areas of the UK, morning delivery is available at extra cost, however, our standard courier does not guarantee this service and they can deliver at any time during the working hours, sometimes in the morning and sometimes in the afternoon.

In northern and western Scotland because the locations are so remote, guaranteed morning deliveries are not available from our carrier, Caledonian Logistics.

I live in a small village that very large lorries may struggle to access and I live down a no-through road

Your delivery courier is very professional and specializes in residential deliveries.

I made the order yesterday at 13:30 for next day delivery, but the tracking shows delivery tomorrow. Why?

The cut-off time for same-day dispatch is now 12:00 due to carrier requirements.

Is it possible for you to tell which company makes the delivery?

Yes, If you let us know what product you are after, and your address we can provide these details.

Do you have a hiab?

No, we don’t.

What size are the oak Kiln-dried wood pallets?

Internal dimensions 110 X 80 X 185 cm
External dimensions 115 X 85 X 200 cm

How many logs are in the quarter pallet of the oak Nestro (round) briquettes?

120 logs each 2kg in weight.

Can you tell me how many logs are in Nestro round oak briquettes in a half pallet?

In a half pallet, there are 240 logs, 2kg each.

Do you stock RUF bark or similar long burn briquettes?

We do not.

Do you do a sample pallet of the various briquettes?

Yes, we do sample boxes.

We have 2 open fireplaces. Which product do you recommend?

For longer burn-in open fires.For open fires, we recommend Nestro round briquettes. They are large in size and provide longer burning time per log.

Would you say Nestro round briquettes are more efficient and better value than normal season blocks?

Definitely. Seasoned logs typically contain around 30 % moisture and there are lots of gaps in between the logs while the briquettes have around 11% moisture and are highly compressed.

I read they give out 18% more heat than Pete Briquettes just wondering do they burn up real fast though.

Burning speed depends on the amount of air inflow. If your stove allows air inflow to be regulated/adjusted, simply turn down air inflow to adjust the burning time. If not, you can buy a quarter pallet and experiment.

If heat logs are ok to store outside or in a shed?

All heat logs must be stored indoors. Nestro especially, because a part of the packs is not fully sealed. The best-sealed product for storage in a shed is Birth RUF heat logs but the shed must be completely closed off from water ingress.

Is oak or hardwood better heat-wise and length of time burning?

Yes, they do contain 6.6% more heat value per tonne. Burning time like for like, is going to be 5-10% longer.

What is the size of the compressed round log? I want to buy an outdoor storage box before I order the logs.

Each briquette measures approximately 95 mm (3.5 in.) In diameter x 270 mm (11 in.) length. Full pallets of 96 packs delivered on pallets measuring 112 x 104 x 122cm.
