Yeah Im going to go with the 2m3 crate this year myself as it offers better value over the 1.2m3 ones-
1.2m3 @ 240 euro = 200 euro per cubic metre
2m3 @ 350 euro = 175 euro per cubic metre
The 'free delivery' you get is really costing you 50 euro so there is an overall saving by buying it in bigger quantities (if you have the storage space) and hence having less deliveries. Out of the 2m3 I'll likely use about 1.2m3 of wood this winter and then have 0.8m3 left to get me two thirds the way through the following winter, perhaps to about February. Then another 2m3 crate will finish off that winter and take care of all of the next one with no need to buy again for the winter of 2022.
