Dont take any risks when sending Fragile goods via Pallet. Ensure you secure all items and high value goods in accordance with the guidelines
Sending high value or fragile goods by pallet is an excellent and cost effective way to transport your items. However, there are some things that you need to be aware of before you commit to sending. Packaging your goods securely is essential if you wish to avoid the risks associated with sending these items. You need to be sure that your items are securely packaged before you add them to the pallet, and also fixed safely to the pallet itself.
The following items will not be insured for damage, but can be insured for loss. They must be packaged in line with our pallet packaging guidelines.
- Computers, laptops, tablets, monitors and screens, etc.
- Televisions, LCD screens, plasma screens, projectors, digital displays, etc.
- Glass or any item that contains glass in part eg. iPods and mobile phones or Smartphones
We also recommend that expensive items that are attractive to thieves, are camouflaged in their packaging or a plain packaging placed around them, to detract attention away and give no clues as to the contents.
Generally, most other things are fine to be sent by pallet delivery, but if in doubt please give us a call and we will be happy to explain your options and costs.
