Pallet Packaging and Presentation

Preparing your pallets

In order to prepare your pallets for collection, all goods carried must be palletised and suitable for road transportation. Goods must be secured to two way pallets via shrink-wrap (including the top, where possible) or by adequate plastic or metal banding. It is advised that machinery is crated. Pallets must be clearly marked up with relevant address labels, these 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 be charged 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 all goods are clearly marked with address labels on two opposing sides of the pallet. There is a facility on our Online Booking System that allows you to print pallet labels and secure to pallets.

Please ensure engines are fully drained and banded securely to the pallet. Download full PDF guide to shipping engines.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
