Quality & Service

AC Timber places the quality of service and products provided as its top business priorities and we will work closely with our customers to ensure we supply the right timber at the right time. Our staff ensure that the timber is selected to your specification and our own transport ensures it will be delivered to you exactly when you require it. Typically we deliver our orders within 24 hours. We also welcome you to visit our warehouse in Ely where you can self select your boards for immediate collection or subsequent delivery.


Good Quality Timber is not cheap and it is unwise to pay too much, but it's also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, sometimes you lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.

"The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it's well to add something for the risk you run and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."

John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
