I like it when local businesses do well. I especially like when they do well because they offer really good service.
And now, step forward The Fireman:
Superior quality DRY firewood and braaiwood delivery in Cape Town.
They were very good when I ordered from them pre-winter, and now I find myself requiring a refill, they’ve been very good again. Here’s the email I got this morning:
Thank you for your order.
We have been so incredibly busy that demand is currently exceeding supply and despite working around the clock, our farmers are struggling to keep up at the moment. We have the dry wood stock at the farms so supply will not be a problem, and have just mobilised two more camps of staff to increase our logging production levels. We hope we will have caught up to have a surplus stock level at the depot by early next week. At the moment, every single bag of the stock that arrives has already been allocated by previously booked appointments so goes straight out to someone’s house! We thought we had projected a sufficient chopped supply for this season but we think because of our commitment to only providing dry wood, on time and with a smile, we have been a lot busier than expected.
We can offer you a delivery on [date] at [time] if this is convenient for you?
It turns out that [date] and [time] is very convenient for me, and – despite their apparent struggles – is really not ever so far away. What’s more, I’m confident that they will turn up when they say they will, with a truckload of dry wood and a smile. Delivery is included and they’ll stack the wood for free.
So, if you are after firewood in Cape Town, please go to their site and support them some more.
Note: This is not a sponsored post. Remember, I tell you about sponsored posts:
Occasionally, people get in touch wanting paid links or sponsored posts. I can choose to be very selective with these, because I know that the blog isn’t my source of income, and I’ll always tell you if I am endorsing a product in exchange for cold, hard cash of course.
So when I say something is good, you’ll know that you can believe what I am saying.
And, looking around at other Cape Town blogs, doesn’t that make a refreshing change?
