How to Store and Ship a Pallet from the UK Internationally
When safety and protection is a matter of high importance for the delivery of the goods that you purchase, using a pallet to ship will help you avoid all the mishaps that can happen while shipping. Palletizing your items into a single shipment keeps all your things together and provides maximum protection from damage. Every pallet, which includes the contents, is seen as one package.
What is Pallet?
A pallet is a portable flat transport structure or rigid platform for consolidating shipments and ease freight movement while with a lift by a forklift, a pallet jack, a front loader, etc. Quality pallets are commonly made of either wood or plastic. Pallets should be large enough to accommodate the shipment without overhang. The following are basic step-by-step instructions on how to ship large items and palletizing your freight.
We use a range of freight and haulage service providers such as Palletways, Palletforce, Pall-Ex, or other custom services agreements with our customers. This will be sent from our warehouse facility on a standard, large pallet, or Euro-pallet.
These pallets, which must not contain engines, hazardous or fragile, and must not exceed 1000kg, can be sent to a curbside/kerbside when they arrive at their final destination. The pallets can also be on concrete surfaces, which facilitates pump truck operation. Our customers need to specify if they require a tail lift when delivery occurs.
We also provide optional insurance cover for this service, ensuring peace of mind to all our customers.
