In order to make sure that you get your wood pellets, charcoal and/or briquettes when you need them, our delivery company has advised us that they will be using 18-tonne lorries for all our deliveries.
This will improve delivery times which will also help to keep costs down. An 18 tonne lorry is approximately: 15m long, 2.6m wide & 4.5m high
For hard to reach places, or those areas or roads that are unsuitable for big lorries, a smaller 7.5 tonne lorry can be used instead. A 7.5 tonne lorry is similar in size to a bin lorry, so if you get your bins emptied, then there’s room for a 7.5 tonne lorry.
For places that are even harder to reach, a long wheelbase van may need to be used instead. This will be similar to a long wheelbase “Transit” style van. Please note that there will be extra charges if a transit van delivery is required due to limited access.
- A 7.5 tonne lorry measures approximately: 8.0m long, 2.5m wide & 3.7m high
- A long wheelbase van measures approximately: 7m long, 2.5m wide & 2.8m high.
Also, if the pallet needs to be split into extra shipments there will be extra delivery charges.
