    Reclaimed Hardwood Suppliers

    Hi there, can I please ask for some advice.

    I am trying to find good honest suppliers of different reclaimed hardwoods particularly Teak which could be supplied in planks up to four meters in length.

    The problem is I feel I really need to use a credit card for the transactions because of the purchase protection insurance.

    I lost (scam) 50% of the total value for a large teak order (Indonesia)
    Also a friend lost money dealing face to face and paying cash on his second furniture order with a business

    Because I've lost money before I cannot really trust anyone I haven't built trust with and I'm finding most businesses wont except card payment, paypal, etc which offer some protection against fraud and theft.

    Any Advise ,Help, Tips, Contacts, Experiences, Links..... would greatly be appreciated

    Thanks, Sure understand that as it is generally around the world, just trying to not get my fingers burnt twice and find a safer way of doing things. Would need it machined PSE and a fair quantity ongoing not just enough to make piece of furniture.

    Yes its where I originally came across the guy how scammed me Im afraid, ideally Im looking for a company someone has some experience of dealing with or heard good things about . Been in contact with a company called Indochine but they dont except credit card etc despite saying they do on their website which is a shame as supply what I want and seem genuine.
