Import timber

If you are looking to import a large consignment of construction timber to an SADC country, you will need to work with a trusted supplier. Respectable timber suppliers cannot afford to disappoint their customers. Delays in timber delivery impact all agricultural, building and construction projects negatively. We understand that customers cannot afford to have their construction projects held up because of an unreliable supply from timber importers.

That’s why at Sabie Poles we’ve taken certain steps to make life easier for the various timber importers that we work with. We know that customers are looking for quality and reliability when it comes to their import timber needs. You’ll be in good hands if you choose to import timber to any SADC country from Sabie Poles in South Africa. Why? Because we’re a big business, but we’ve held on to our small business values.

The types of timber wood we export

Looking for the cheapest wood to build with?

When it comes to construction timber there are various options to choose from. However, if you are looking for the most cost-effective timber product to use for building purposes, we would like to recommend our S5 construction-grade timber. It is ideal for construction projects and this product is mainly used for the frameworks of buildings and support beams as well as roof trusses.

What is S5 construction timber?

This pine product has been H2 treated to last and agrees with SANS-1783:2013 specifications. S5 construction timber is treated with chemicals that are mainly waterborne. Boron, LOSP preservatives, and CCA pressure treatment are commonly used in the treatment process. This type of timber works very well for interior, above ground use and is ideal for roof trusses and timber frames for log homes. It is safe to use and will protect your building project against decay and insect attacks.

Importing indoor wood or outdoor wood

It goes without saying that your import timber needs will largely depend on your customers’ needs. When it comes to indoor wood (sometimes also referred to as appearance grade lumber) the way the wood looks are incredibly important. After all, it is perfectly understandable that people want to show off their beautiful wooden floors or ceiling beams. H2 CCA pressure-treated timber is ideal for these purposes.
On the other hand, though, outdoor wood has to be much tougher.

Here there is less emphasis on appearance and more emphasis on durability. Although you might still want to choose beautiful timber products for your outdoor decks, laminated beams, staircases, and even your garden furniture, the most important thing is that it can stand up to the elements. For these types of applications, we would recommend using H3 CCA treated timber.

Get indoor wood and outdoor wood from us at Sabie Poles

Of course, you might need both indoor and outdoor wood for certain large building projects. Often, we find that customers require timber for various elements related to a single construction project. There is no need to look any further though. Sabie poles can provide you with various timber import options for all your construction needs.

Do you get wood cheaper at a lumber yard?

There are various benefits that go along with coming directly to a manufacturer. One of them is price, so why not work directly with a top South African timber manufacturer. No order is too big or too small for us, but since cross border transport cost on small loads is expensive, we would like to recommend you order loads from 20tons and bigger.

Timber Prices and Sizes

We have a wide range of different products that are available in many varying sizes. You don’t have to stick to only one type of timber. We welcome timber importers with extensive “shopping lists”. You are most welcome to order a variety of products (types of wood) in different sizes suitable to your particular needs, all in one go. After all, why wouldn’t you take advantage of the fact that you’re getting your wood cheaper at a lumber yard?
