About us

We are changing the timber trade

VonWood is the only digital marketplace where timber supply meets timber demand. Our guarantee: no more middlemen, the best price and properly arranged transport.

Our story

The idea behind VonWood

Let's be honest. The timber trade is antiquated, not transparent and certainly not sustainable. There are too many unnecessary middlemen in between the sawmill and the contractor. This results in enormous price differences, inefficient sales processes and poorly arranged transport. Something needs to change. It's time to really shake the tree.

With our platform, we have created the only digital marketplace where supply meets demand. Where you can buy or sell the best timber for the best price. In a way that suits you best.

We will not only help you make better deals, we can help you with your administration and the transport, and together, we help preserve our planet. That makes us more than just the only viable marketplace for timber, but an extra foundation for your company. A digital foundation, not a wood foundation.


We are VonWood. Not your unnecessary middleman, but your best wingman.

What we stand for

Our values


We are proponents of an honest timber trade. The highest quality timber combined with 100% transparency. We have created a place where you have insight into the cost of timber. We personally inspect and verify every sawmill. We have compiled a reliable group of quality sawmills and the most ambitious contractors on the planet.


We want to make sure you can focus on what you do best. Sawmills or contractors: we are always ready to help. In just a few clicks you can buy or sell volumes of timber. We keep you up to date before, during and after the sales process by way of notifications, arrange your digital administrative records and organise every transport load.


The raw materials our planet offers are precious. That is why we help sawmills produce more efficiently and contractors to buy in a more targeted fashion. We must protect our planet, we cannot just keep on cutting trees. That is why we plant 3 new tress for every completed order.

For contractors

How do I place a request?

Placing a request on the VonWood platform is easy and free. In your request, please indicate which wood species, types, processing level, amounts and dimensions you need.

What happens after I have placed a request?

We will then make your request known to the most suitable sawmills. Within 48 hours, you will receive your quotes. You can then decide which quote works best for you.

Can I make changes to my request?

You cannot change your request. If, after 48 hours you decide not to accept any of the quotes you have received, your request will be removed and you will have no further obligations.

What if I have received the best quote?

You decide what the best quote is for your needs. The sawmill will be notified and will then start to prepare your order. In the week the delivery is scheduled to take place, we will ensure timely delivery.

What kind of wood can I order from VonWood?

At this moment we are only offering timber, but in the very near future we will also be adding other types and applications such as sheet material and facade cladding to our assortment. Currently we offer all kinds of European wood types, including spruce, pine, birch, Douglas and oak. You can easily order various thicknesses and lengths, but also types such as battens, beams and slats. We are here to make buying all your scheduled bulk timber much easier!

For sawmills

How do you submit a quote?

We immediately notify you when a contractor has placed a request that matches your production level. Please note: it really pays off to submit a quote quickly because only the first 5 bidders will participate. So, don't wait too long before submitting a quote!

What happens when someone agrees to my quote?

As soon as someone agrees to your quote, you have a deal! You will be notified of this and then it is time to start preparing the order. Once you have prepared your order, you can indicate this on the platform. We will then make sure you get paid right away. Guaranteed.

What role does VonWood play in the process?

We are here to expedite your work and make it more efficient so that you can focus on producing the right timber. That is why we arrange the payment, transport and digital administration. We keep you informed of each step of the sales process, the status of the order and what we expect of you.

How does VonWood organise the transport?

You only need to indicate that the order is ready for pick-up. We will handle the transport from your location.

Can any sawmill become a member?

Certainly not! We only allow sawmills that meet our admission requirements for volume, certification and quality. We will personally inspect each sawmill in order to safeguard quality.
