Preparing your pallets
We understand that you want your items collected and transported with the utmost of care. This is why we stress the importance of pallet presentation.
It is essential when preparing your items for collection, all goods carried must be palletised and suitable for road transportation. Items must be secured to two-way pallets with shrink-wrap (including the top, where possible) or by adequate plastic or metal banding. Pallets must be clearly marked up with relevant address labels which must be placed on at least two sides of the pallet.
Pallet weight must not exceed 1000kgs and dimensions of 1200 x 1000 x 2200mm. Pallets that are sent in excess of the above, will incur further charges accordingly on footprint area. All goods requiring a tail-lift off-load must be securely packed on a four-way entry pallet (with a minimum of 100mm clearance for pallet truck entry), and weigh no more than 1000kgs.
Please ensure that all goods are clearly marked with address labels on two opposing sides of the pallet. Please use the facility on our Online Booking System that allows you to print pallet labels and secure to pallets.
We do advise that any machinery is crated. It is also important that you ensure engines are fully drained and banded securely to the pallet. See Engine Shipping Guide for further information.
