When you decide to stock up on kiln-dried firewood for your firepit this summer, you are faced with the question of whether you want to pick it up yourself or if you want to have it delivered by the professionals from Cutting Edge Firewood. As we discussed in an earlier post, the most obvious justification for choosing delivery over pickup is convenience. Instead of putting in the hard work to transport the firewood from the Showroom to your home, you can trust the experts to bring it right to your door and stack it wherever you want.
However, if you’ve always been an independent do-it-yourselfer, you may need a little more convincing when it comes to choosing delivery service instead of carrying it home yourself. Like so many self-sufficient Southerners before you, you may find yourself asking, “Is it really worth having someone else do it when I could easily bring it home with me from the Showroom?” The answer, in short, is yes.
In today’s post, we’re going to explore the more practical justifications–beyond the simple fact of convenience–for choosing kiln-dried firewood delivery. Read on for the top five reasons why independent, practical-minded Southerners are embracing kiln-dried firewood delivery this summer.
- The delivery service protects the integrity of the firewood during transport.
When you pick up your firewood from the Showroom, it is guaranteed to be pest-free and mold-free. However, as soon as you drop it in the back of your car or truck, all bets are off. Moisture accumulation in a truck bed or a car trunk can serve as a breeding ground for mold spores or other pests, which can quickly infest your firewood. Therefore, from a practical perspective, it makes more sense to choose kiln-dried firewood because you won’t risk compromising its quality by transporting it on your own.
- Allowing an expert to stack your firewood can reduce your risk of injury.
Let’s face it: There’s no worse way to spend the first weeks of your summer than being laid up in bed with a strained shoulder, back sprain, fractured wrist, abdominal hernia, or other injury that can result from lifting a heavy object like firewood. Even if you’re used to lifting heavy objects, kiln-dried firewood has a unique shape, and which can make it harder to figure out how to pick it up in a way that fully protects your body from injury. That’s especially true in the early summer months, when you haven’t lit your firepit in awhile and aren’t as familiar with the shape and weight of the wood. Therefore, the practical solution is to have an expert deliver and stack your firewood instead of hauling it home yourself.
- Experts know how to stack firewood in the most aesthetically-pleasing way.
More than ever, Atlanta-area residents are giving their homes and yards a more rustic aesthetic by setting up a kiln-dried firewood display. Because the Delivery Artisans from Cutting Edge Firewood have extensive experience with firewood stacking, they can help you arrange your display so it ends up just the way you want it. That way, you won’t spend hours trying to figure out how best to position the wood in order to get the aesthetic you want.
- Getting kiln-dried firewood delivered when you’re not home is more time-efficient.
If you’re the independent, do-it-yourselfer type, finding ways to save time is probably another one of your major priorities. So if you’re not going to pick up the firewood yourself, you don’t want to spend more time on it than you have to. Cutting Edge Firewood understands that, so once you’re an established customer and you’ve shown us where you want your kiln-dried firewood to be stacked, you don’t even have to be home to get a delivery. That way, you can get your firewood delivered while our off at work or out playing–and you won’t end up wasting a precious moment.
- You can get expert advice when your firewood is delivered.
The Delivery Artisans who bring the kiln-dried firewood aren’t just anonymous manual laborers who drop your firewood wherever you ask them too. Rather, they are firewood experts with years of experience, and they can share that experience with you. Whether you have questions about storage practices, starting a fire, or trying out different types of kiln-dried firewood, our Delivery Artisans are ready to share their knowledge. And that can help you build your own foundation of knowledge–making you more independent in the future!
Of course, delivery isn’t ideal in all situations. If you’re in a bind, you can still pick up your kiln-dried firewood order from our Showroom. It may not be as practical or convenient as delivery, but it’s a good backup in emergency situations when you suddenly realize you’re out of firewood. Instead of making a grocery store run for low-quality wood, you can pick up a small order directly from the Showroom. The firewood is available in small amounts–just enough for a single fireside get-together or two–so you don’t even need a truck to haul it away.
