Pallet Packing Requirements

All goods collected through National Pallets must be placed on a pallet. We appreciate not everyone has access to empty pallets, this is why if you don't have a pallet, then we can help. For an additional £12.50 plus VAT we can arrange for a pallet to be supplied to you upon collection of your goods. It is however, you're responsibility to ensure the goods are safely stacked on the pallet. All details must have been entered correctly on the booking page and your goods packed in accordance with the following specifications. Failure to do so may result in refusal to collect the pallet, if the driver deems the goods or the way they have been packaged to be unsafe.

The goods on the pallet

MUST be stable when packed or placed on the pallet

MUST NOT overhang the edges of the pallet

MUST NOT exceed the dimensions of the size of pallet entered

MUST NOT be top heavy and be able to withstand being transhipped six times

MUST be firmly and properly secured with either plastic shrink wrap or banded with either fibre or steel banding

MUST be sufficiently packaged to protect the goods
