The cost difference is to cover maintenance of the bins and is not refundable. There is no minimum number of refills to order, however we will request the bin be returned if you haven't been in contact within 12 months. The bin remains the property of Enviroqube Firewood and must be retuned on request (we will come and pick it up) . If the bin is damaged (other than wear and tear) or is not returned on request, a fee of between $50 and $185 will be payable.
Can I pick up my order?
Yes, you can pick up your order by appointment from Maryknoll. We will contact you after you place your order to organise pick up or delivery.
Do you have quality control?
To ensure all firewood sold is ready to burn, we regularly measure the moisture content of wood using electrical resistance moisture meters. This is done periodically as the firewood is stored while curing, as we are packing bags / bins and also prior to delivery. If you have any issues with the quality of our product, please let your delivery driver know at the time of delivery as they are authorised to rectify the issue. If this isn't possible, please contact us asap.
Is your wood dry?
Our firewood is tested to ensure it meets industry regulations in relation to it's moisture content. In most cases the firewood delivered to you will be dry and ready to burn. In some cases, when delivering uncovered loads, there is a chance it may get wet during transport.
