Natural Product Disclaimer
Although we endeavor to provide you with a product which is 100% accurate, occasionally you may find a slightly different wood in your delivery.
What do we mean by this?
For example, if you order a metre of hardwood from us, every now and then a couple of softwood logs may slip through with your order and vice versa.
Why does this happen?
At Logan's we take delivery of a large number of trees for processing on a weekly basis. When an area of forest is felled, occasionally there is a softwood species mixed in with the hardwood trees and vise-versa.
We always try to ensure this never happens, but now and then a log or two may slip through the net.
We hope you enjoy many pleasurable hours burning our hard and softwoods.
The contract between South West Forestry and the customer will be deemed to be fulfilled on delivery of your order in good condition.
Very Important: The goods will be considered to be delivered in a good condition where you, the customer, has signed the delivery note confirming the safe delivery of the order.
Where the customer has waived their right to inspect the state of goods by requesting delivery without a signature, the contract will be seen as completed, regardless of the actual state of goods. Delivery will be deemed to have been made at the time stated on the delivery note.
We strongly recommend against customers requesting unattended deliveries.
