FAQ's

Crated firewood is stacked in order to maximise the amount of wood squeezed into a particular space. Wood sold in 'bulk bags' is loose filled. According to AEBIOM (the European Biomass Association) one should multiply the stacked volume by 1.7 to arrived at the equivalent loose volume. 

Have a look at our great info page on Loose Volume's here.
If there are ever any issues with a delivery, please get in contact with us ASAP at sales@whitehorseenergy.co.uk. We will reimburse for any loss of product, however, we are unable to refund for just split packaging as the contents can usually still be used.
Your order will be delivered on a pallet. Rather than forcing you to give that pallet back when your order is delivered, that pallet is included with your order. If you'd rather not have the pallet hanging around, try giving it back to the haulier on your next order - they don't guarantee to take the pallet off you, but most canny drivers will as they can earn a good few £'s dealing in second hand pallets! If that doesn't work and you don't want to use (or burn) the pallet, try googling a local pallet company - most will happily come and collect a few pallets from you for free.

If it's a firewood order we can heartily recommend the crate as a source of free kindling!

Unfortunately we are not able to arrange the collection of your used packaging materials.

White Horse Energy sells firewood using an Average Moisture content specification.

If you are concerned about the moisture content of your logs the quickest way to gauge the average MC is to sample two logs - one of the thickest, and one of the thinnest. Take two moisture content readings from each, one from the end of the log, and one from the middle of the log having first split the log. Use the average of those 4 readings as the average moisture content of your crate. For greater accuracy, take a larger sample of logs.

If you don't have a moisture content meter (they are available quite cheaply on Amazon) give the office a call and we can send you one out with a SAE to return it to us once you're done.

We aim to have all orders delivered on the third or fourth working day, provided your order is received before 4pm on the first working day. So, for example, if you order at 2pm Monday, you should expect your order to arrive on Wednesday or Thursday. Most of our orders are delivered within that time frame however, due to the nature of delivery services we cannot guarantee our couriers will deliver within an exact time frame.

Over 80% of our customers will receive a free (included) delivery. However, some areas on the periphery of the nation may experience a small surcharge.

View our Delivery Surcharge page to see if your order will have a surcharge applied to it. Alternatively the system will show the shipping surcharge at the order summary stage of checkout.

If in doubt, give the office a call on 01285 402 000 and we would be glad to help.

Once you have added all the items to your basket, continue through to the checkout. At the order summary stage, where you will be agreeing to our terms and conditions, there will be a box labelled 'Discount Coupon'. Insert the coupon in here and then click apply.

Wood moisture content is a very subjective measure. Some suppliers will quote an external moisture content, some will quote an internal moisture content (i.e. the moisture content of a log measure in the middle of a newly split log). We quality control all batches of our logs when they leave the supplier and again when they enter our warehouse to ensure that you can be confident that the wood we supply is the best possible for your fire.
Typically all our wood's external moisture content will be in the range of 12-17%, while your averaged sized log's internal moisture content will be in the region from 17-25%.
Pre orders allow you to place an order before we have replenished the stock. We will display an "available from" date next to the product. 

On the date we receive stock we will dispatch immediately & your order will arrive as per the arrival date on your invoice. 
Unfortunately not! We make use of a pallet company to deliver our products, hence your order will come on a pallet which will be lowered to the ground and placed in a convenient location, subject to appropriate access and ground conditions. Where access or ground conditions are inappropriate the delivery will be made to 'kerbside' only.
