Firewood Crates Sizes

Giant vs Full crates. Whats the difference & why have you changed your crates?

Our crate sizes have changed from our previous size, which was a ‘giant crate’ – these are now known as a ‘Full Crate’. These crates are slightly shorter and wider than before, and have allowed us to maintain a competitive price for consumers following the wood crisis in Europe that has been ongoing since the start of 2018. Whilst they do seem shorter in height , the overall reduction to the crates is equivalent to around 2 layers of wood.
 
Volume of Old Giant Crate (Circa 08/2018): 2.54³ - Volume of New Full Crate: 2.08³
 
Regarding the price of the wood, firewood has become increasingly more expensive at source, with some suppliers more than tripling their prices. As a result, the firewood market has struggled to accommodate these inflating prices, resulting in some prices/dimensions becoming unsustainable. Had we continued to sell our wood in our previous crate dimensions, they would have been retailing at £300+ and therefore we took the decision to alter the crate dimensions to enable us to bring in more wood at one time, allowing us to keep our prices down.
