It is worth noting that now there are a huge number of shops and other companies where you can purchase lumber on any scale. However, no less often you can encounter a problem when sellers simply simply deceive buyers with various tricks. First of all, in this case, you will not even understand that you were deceived. For this reason, it is imperative to know the main nuances of this problem.
In the event that you buy a board measuring 6 metro 10 centimeters, then you need to pay for 6 meters of goods. The fact is that the log is always harvested taking into account drying. If we calculate the cubic capacity, then these seemingly small 10 centimeters give a markup to the product of about 2-3 percent. For this reason, always tell the seller that you will only pay for a full meter.
Not only that, quite often many sellers throw off a couple of millimeters of thickness, talking about the error. It is for this error that you can lose up to 20 percent of the cost. In the event that you purchase a board of 30 millimeters, you need to measure it yourself. Quite often in this case, the figure will be 27 or even 25 millimeters.
Rounding with errors
In this case, the number of boards in 1 cube. For example, you took a board 5 * 20 * 600 centimeters, in one cube we get 16.67 meters of boards. Upon purchase, you will be brought exactly 16 boards, but you will pay for 16.67. In that case, if the cube on average costs 7 thousand rubles, then in this case you will lose 280 rubles per cube.
Low grade dilution
In the event that you order a quality board of 1 or 2 grades, an unscrupulous seller may throw several boards of 3 grades, with rot or too dry. In the event that you buy a quality product, it should not be:
- Cracks and chips.
The humidity of a quality board should not be more than 22 percent.
Sometimes sellers require an advance payment for the goods. Never do this, and pay the lumber, only upon receipt.
Following these simple rules, you are sure to stay in the black, and with good material.
