Now y'all be nice now to my LFB.  The bestest thing about having an old goat for a friend is knowing which one he is.   poston-smiley

Make a sign with the rules. That gives you the option to modify them as needed.

Seems like 48 hours is fair. "Anything left for 48 hours without the knowledge of the management becomes donated goods."

Then you can decide situation by situation how much time you feel is "more reasonable" for good customers. If you don't demand that they let you know then they won't. Fair is fair.

You can always "hide" their logs and when they come in 9 months later; "You're not sure if they are still on the lot." If you choose, you can find them, even a day later and the guy won't do it again and be happy they didn't get lost. You can still retain the customer but they won't make the same mistake in the future.

The Amish pallet mill keeps a couple of cans of spray paint out by the logs so logs that get dropped off after hours gets the loggers name painted on the ends.

Red Oaks, I'm with you.  This problem ranks way low as far as problems go.  Very easy to deal with.  5 minutes or less with a loader and problem moved to out of the way.

You are both larger operations with plenty of real estate. Like I said earlier, my yard is tiny. My mill yard is 120'x140', with a 50'x70' void in one corner where there is a building. I can deal with log deliveries, but only with preparation. If the logs are nice logs, great, but what about the junk? Now you have to tell whomever brought the logs that they aren't worth sawing, or you have to dispose of them yourself if the owner never shows. I hate a lack of communication.

Fine if someone drops off logs and the next days calls,if you have the room.
But 9 months.  ::)
