Email Enquiries


Your email enquiry is important to us; we do receive high numbers of emails and aim to respond within 12-24 hours. On some occasions it may take longer than this to reply.

Some enquiries will take longer to reply to as we may require a few hours to look at timber in order to match your enquiry requirements.

Due to the volume of enquiries we receive on a daily basis we do not communicate with clients via Facebook or Instagram, these accounts are used to occasionally post images of our Interesting Timber and Timber Products.

Rural Broadband & emails

Our email service is provided via remote countryside broadband; as this is a 'rural' service from time to time we experience difficulties sending and receiving emails.

If you haven't received an email response within 24-48 hours please call our office as we are happy to help you and to check that your email has been received.
