Non-smokeless Ovoids suitable for the smart bunker Doubles, Oxbow Glow, Glow Briquettes, Petroleum Coke.
The SmartBunker is not suitable for large, irregular shaped coal.
If in any doubt, contact us prior to purchasing, stating the type of coal that you plan to use or talk to your local coal merchant. As there is more ranges of coal not on the above list

DON’T BURN WET FUEL Video showing the problem and the smart solution. Wet fuel can contribute as the fuel heats up water vapour evaporates up the chimney triggering the sulphuric acid reaction on the exposed liner. Coal storage or bags sitting on the ground crates condensation were the coal at the bottom is wet or damp as you have to shovel from the bottom.

Important information you need to know about your flue liner manufacturers also now state that their guarantee will become void if petrochemical fuels are burnt.

    I’m happy to say that I couldn’t be happier with my bunker. It is not a thing of beauty but it so clever and very, very practical. The only issue I have is that it only holds three bags of fuel, and with the Aga on I use a bag a week so the coalman has to come every three weeks. Apart from this annoyance the bunker is the most wonderful, easy and efficient way to get coal in and out.

    Just bought the coal bunker for my parents, very easy assembled. Very robust plastics but it looks neat and tidy. My mum and dad are over the moon with it, they can’t believe how easy it is to operate. I ordered this at 11.30 am and it was delivered to my house at 1pm the next day brilliant service.

    Hi Nial
    Thanks for the reply. I spotted your bunker on the Internet, but if I were you I would try and bump it up in the search engines as it’s not at the top level. I already bought one from you and this is my second one as I’m very happy with the ease of use of the first one.
    Cheers

    Hi Niall

    Many thanks for taking my call yesterday and as discussed please find some feedbeek.

    We find that the Smartbunker is easy to use and dispensing the coal is very quick and easy. With other coal bunkers it can be difficult to get the coal from the bunker. The bunker is very sturdy and steady. Ours was actually outside when Ophelia was raging. It didn’t topple over and moved very little and there was no coal inside it! I have recommended it to other family members.

    Hi Niall

    I just wanted to let you know that I eventually persuaded my husband to buy me the Smart Bunker for Christmas.

    It has to be one of the best presents I’ve had. We love it! The coalman loves it. We’ve been showing it off and making the neighbours envious.

    We’ve timed ourselves and we can get from the fire with an empty bucket and back to the fire with a full bucket in 52 seconds lol.
    Thanks again

    Hello Niall
    I live with my wife { both 80 years}. Our son gifted us with one of your products, the smart bunker,
    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, but lots on. You will be glad to hear the unit is working very well now. I think it was the combination of wet sticky coal and wrong size. I thank you for the excellent service and personal interest you showed in my problem.
    I can now recommend your bunker and will very happy to do so.
    Best Regards

    What an amazing piece of kit from an equally amazing company with first class customer service. Bunker ordered Monday night and was here on Thursday morning. Watched the assembly video a couple of times and had it constructed and in place in under 10 minutes. It really is as simple as advertised. Niall’s customer service is fab with much patience for my endless questions about size of coal….who knew there were so many options!!!! Thanks Niall I’m sort of looking forward to winter now 😁😁

    Anyone who hasn’t got one of these yet is really giving themselves extra work I got one 3 years ago and have never regretted it old young disabled( obviously depending on disability) can benefit from this ingenious invention done Niall on all the awards you have won and continue to win for a quality product.

    Review feedback 24-Nov-2019
    Hi Niall
    The smart bunker has been helpful as it is a great place to store our coal and it certainly keeps it dry.

    Unfortunately Homefire smokeless coal doesn’t work particularly well. It gets stuck as I assume it is too big. We’ve changed to a different brand which is smaller and does work better.

    Thanks

    Richard

    “Finally found just what I had been searching for. I did not want a monstrous plastic monobloc type as is mostly found advertised. This has a relatively small footprint and hold an amazing volume of coal…all of which is accessible. The mechanism is a brilliant innovation yet quite simple in its design I highly recommend this product”
    Thanks

    Now that I’ve owned a Smart Bunker for 6 month and had the opportunity to assess it, my opinion is very positive for use with smokeless ovals, the ovals are just under the size that’s recommended not to exceed so as to avoid jamming and it works fine, yes it does jam occasionally but the advice is to hold the handle down half way then release, this sends a shock through the bunker and releases the ovals, failing this hold the handle all the way to the floor then release the handle, this technique has never failed but most of the time it doesn’t jam. A 12 litre bucket can be filled in 3 seconds! There was a slight issue with the courier so I contacted Niall (the owner), he quickly sorted it and kept me in the loop, highly recommended company and product.

    This is an excellent sturdy product that not only saves in shovelling but cuts down significantly on the mess when collecting coal. I bought it for my mum who is elderly and struggling to shovel from our old bunker and she is so happy with it we both we wish it was available years ago! We use eggs and doubles – it fits around 4 bags and they come out of the hopper no problem, although any bigger chucks and you may find the hopper sticks a little – when the coal does occasionally stick in the hopper, a quick flick of the lever and it’s all good.
    As an aside, customer communication and service was fabulous – sadly no space for a sixth star

    It is rare if ever I leave a review but feel the smart bunker merits it. Both my Dad and I have reduced mobilty and found filling the coal buckets each winter especially difficult. This bunker has literally been the answer to our prayers taking all the work out of it and making life so much easier. Would encourage everyone to purchase as it really is a god send. Delivery was swift and customer service outstanding. Overall cannot recommend enough.

    Hello Niall
    I just wanted to thank you for your swift, efficient service delivering the smart bunker.
    It only took 10 minutes for me to assemble it thanks to your helpful video.
    It’s a great design, much sturdier and cleaner that those flimsy tin ones and actually a lot easier to fill that I thought it might be.
    Thanks for your great, friendly service.
