Where to get bunch of cheap firewood??

Hell all

I moved to Zurich in the summer, it is getting chilly. I am wondering where to get bunch of cheap firewood in Zurich area?
I don't have a car but I can rent for one day or pay for delievery fee.
I looked Migros and Coop but they looked a bit expensive for me..

And also I have one more question.
My home radiator doesn't work well, I told my landlord, he told me the radiator speacialist can check my home radiator.
In that case, who will pay for it? the landlord or tenant?

Re: Where to get bunch of cheap firewood??

I bought wood from an offer on ricardo.ch last year, price was good (c. 140 CHF for a 'Ster' delivered to front door). I would say look on there and other ads as well.

Prices range from 120-170 CHF in general; that price does not always include delivery.

Re: Where to get bunch of cheap firewood??

I've never used firewood, but I did a quick google search and this came up.
http://www.brennholzkaufen.ch/v2/index.asp

Apparently, you can order various quantities and they'll deliver it to your home. (unfortunately, it's only in German)

Same goes for these guys...www.brennholz-widmer.ch/

Not sure how cheap both websites are.

Re: Where to get bunch of cheap firewood??

Checked out both the sites that lost_inbroad found, and thought both were expensive to a lot more expensive than I paid last year via Ricardo. YMMV.

For example, in this ad http://www.ricardo.ch/kaufen/haushal...v/an658227048/ the guy is selling a 'Ster', cut to the length you want, for 80 CHF. He will also deliver (for an addiitonal charge of course...). This is the Winterthur area, so would be good for me but perhaps not for you. Anyway, I suggest Ricardo as it should work out a lot cheaper.

On www.brennholzkaufen.ch a 'Ster' would cost me 180-200 CHF (includes delivery to the curb, wood = 'Buchenholz'; my Ricardo offer was for 'Brennholz Esche/Ahorn (Hartholz)').

So look for 'Brennholz' under 'Haushalt & Wohnen' on Ricardo

Re: Where to get bunch of cheap firewood??

I think the collective noun for firewood is bundle.

Hope that helps
