Before placing an order it is highly recommended that you visit the sawmill to familiarise yourself with the product and to make sure that it is the right thing for your application. (See map)
Alternatively browse the product list and product data sheets and pricelists. Remember that the caveat emptor adage (buyer beware) is particularly apt when it comes to timber products, as they are natural and therefore might be quite variable in character.
Phone, email or fax your enquiry to our sales office. They will then confirm price and availability. Remember the pricelist is only an indication of price and the price you pay may change at any time.
Also, while every effort will be made to satisfy your needs, a tree takes over 20 years to grow and so lead times can in some cases be longer than what one might desire.

Geelhoutvlei Timbers is able to make deliveries on request. Longhaul depends on a minimum 50m3 order. Shorthaul is calculated at R2.50 per cubic metre x kilometres with a minimum charge of 1 cubic metre. For example 2 cubic metres of timber to Knysna (55km) = 2 x 55 x R2.50 = R275.00.
Orders will only be despatched as transport is available and might take a few days. Please place your orders timeously and establish clear delivery dates with our sales team.
