Same Day Pallet Delivery
Monday, 30 March 2020 at 10:31
There are many ways to get your items from your business to your customers delivery address. The best transport option depends on your personal delivery requirements. It's doubtful you'll send a solicitors document or a personal sex aid to your mother on a wooden pallet. Engineering machinery or large items, such as bulky packaging products or boxes, however, would fit perfectly on a standard pallet. The strong platform will keep your high value or fragile items safe and sound. If shipping your consignment by road works for your business, then using a pallet delivery service is one of the best ways to ensure the safe delivery of your goods at a cost-effective price.
You may not be familiar with pallet shipping, procedure and packing requirements. So what allows this delivery method to be more effective than say boxing your items and renting a courier vehicle yourself?
A SAFE AND SOUND SHIPPING METHOD
A pallet stacked with large items can’t be thrown about like a loose box, and there are some very good reasons to be confident you’ll be delivering your goods in the safest possible way. A pallet’s weight and low lying, sturdy construction means hardly any movement or sliding during transit. Ratchet straps and shrink wrap will hold your items firmly in place throughout the journey. Forklift trucks and pallet pump trucks keep your items upright during the loading and unloading process.
If you are using multiple pallets, the pallets can be stacked. Traditional wooden pallets can be stacked 17 high to form a pallet tower, also called a ‘skid’. Plastic pallets have inserts that allow skids up to 53 pallets tall.
MAXIMISING VEHICLE SPACE
The more pallets you can fit onto the bed of the truck bed, the less chance of them sliding. Also the more pallets you can load on, the bigger the cost-saving per pallet. Likewise, tightly packed pallets mean more goods per pallet.
COURIERS CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER
Pallet delivery is not as difficult to arrange as you may think. If you are new to pallet deliveries, the chances are that you won’t have pallets lying around. A courier company, such as Greg Paulson Same Day Couriers Ltd. might be able to provide you with multiple pallets for a reasonable price. A good courier service can advise you on routes and the best method for your delivery throughout the UK or internationally – this will save you a lot of time, hassle and money.
SAME DAY DELIVERY
Imagine you’ve just come across a number of packages in your warehouse which haven't been dispatched to the customer yet. You need those items to be delivered ASAP, or you risk losing a valuable client. Same day delivery services can give you peace of mind that your goods will be collected and delivered safely and very importantly, on the same day as requested
Choosing a reliable and reputable courier will ensure that your delivery is a cost-effective, safe and easy way to get your goods shipped from A to B.
