so you made 3 trips then? Sounds like you need a dump trailer w/ some tall sides on it.

I can get 2 cords in the trailer and one in the back of the truck.
For this customer I made one trip with two cords in the trailer and made another trip for the third cord.
What do yall charge for a cord?
125$ a cord if they pick it up.
If i deliver, it depends on how many miles
If they want it stacked its 20$ a cord
I charged 145$ a cord for this delivery

How do you figure you can get two cords of wood in a single axle trailer like that. I sell firewood, and 1 cord is equal to about 6 cu. yds. of material. Are you telling me that you can get 12 Yds. of mulch in that trailer?

Egans, full cord or face cord? For that price likely face cord.

Its a face cord of wood to painted lines..
By definition;A rick, rack or face cord is only a part of a cord of wood. (A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet)

A rick or rack is the amount of firewood stacked by 4' by 8' by one row of the length of the stick.

A face cord is also one row of 4' by 8'. But the difference is a face cord has lengths of sticks that will eventually add up to 4' when stacked in two, three, or four rows.
Example of a face cord:
Four rows of 12" sticks=4'
Three rows of 16"=4'
Two rows of 24"=4'
Therefore, purchasing a face cord of 12" lengths is actually only ¼ cord. A face cord of 16" lengths=1/3 cord and a face cord of 24" lengths is a ½ cord.

This is very confusing and deceiving to most and using these terms in offering sales or advertising for sale is prohibited in most states.

Ricks, Racks, Face Cords are not the same quanity or volume as a cord of measurement.

sm, I figured it was a face cord.
FYI I buy my wood from a local guy. Two years stored inside, no mud or dirt on it, all hardwood, 16" long, 4'x8' piles for $55 I pick up out of his driving shed 8 miles from my house. We burn about 14 face cord per year. This is his last year selling wood, We bought 37 face cord off him and have filled the basement. Won't need wood for close to 3 years. I have a dump truck and can haul 3 face cord at a time, riding on it's azz of course.

Boy I wish I could sell it by the face cord here in MA. Everybody sells it by the full cord, and it's very competetive. We're getting $275 a cord plus delivery, and tax.

Oh yeah, Cape Lawn Care, my name is Egan. George Egan. My family is from County Cork in Ireland. Perhaps we're related.

I get about 240 a cord here. I was able to bring 3 cords of firewood to my house today from a different location using a Ford LCF rack truck today. The truck is 12 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 4 feet high. That fit exactly 3 full cords.

I got out of cutting wood this year, no time. I wish I could show your prices to the numbskull who is running an ad in the local paper: 'Hardwood firewood, $40.00/ face cord, cut/ split/ delivered'. Most others are selling for anywhere from $75-$125/ face cord.
