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.

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?

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.
