Pallet courier services FAQs
What is pallet delivery?
Pallet delivery is the process of delivering goods on a pallet. Pallets are often used in industrial and commercial settings to transport heavy, bulky items that may not be easily transported by hand or by other means. Pallets are the perfect shipping solution as they are durable, can carry heavy loads, and do not take up too much space when stacked on top of each other.
But what is a pallet exactly?
A pallet is just a flat platform used to support goods or materials in storage or transport. Pallets come in different sizes and shapes depending on their purpose, but they usually have four slats running across them which provide stability for the load carried on them. Your pallet can be made from plastic or steel, but the most common material used is wood.
There are many benefits to using this simple yet effective packaging tool, such as lowering transportation costs, preventing damage during parcel transit, and being able to handle any size shipment because the weight is distributed evenly between all four corners of the pallet.
Why and when should I use a pallet delivery service?
While pallet delivery is often associated with commercial enterprises, it is also an affordable way of transporting large or send multiple items for non-business purposes as well. If your goods are heavy, they might not meet size and weight regulations for many courier companies. In this case, a pallet delivery service would be your best choice and is an economical and secure solution.
Where can I get pallets from?
There are plenty of places to buy new pallets online, and you might be able to source used pallets for free from local Industrial parks, construction sites, or supermarkets. You can also try your local Craigs List or Gumtree. Make sure that you have the correct dimensions and that the pallet is in good enough condition for shipping.
What pallet sizes are there?
The dimensions of a standard UK size pallet are 1.2m x 1m. However, the height dimensions vary - a mini quarter pallet is 60cm in height, a quarter pallet is 80cm in height, a half pallet is 100cm in height, a full pallet is 220cm in height.
Restrictions do apply when you send a pallet. The goods shouldn't be bigger than the base, which, as previously mentioned, is 1.2m in length x 1m wide, and the goods on a full pallet shouldn't exceed a weight of 1000kg.
How much does a pallet shipping service cost?
Pallet delivery cost will vary depending on the size and weight you are shipping and where you are shipping to. You can get an instant quote using our shipping calculator to find out pallet delivery prices. Small or large pallet delivery, we can give you the best pallet courier prices available.
How do you send a pallet?
