What can go on a pallet?

H. Crabtree can pickup and deliver almost anything that can fit on a pallet. In the past we have transported by pallet materials such as plastic, steel and waste, as well as domestic equipment and large machinery.

If your shipment is bigger than a full pallet it's not a problem: contact us and we'll still ship it at a competitive price and at a time to suit you.

Pallet Track is a network pallet distribution system. From collection to delivery, the pallet or pallets on which your goods are packed or secured firmly, will be transhipped a minimum of six times.

Consignments must be entered correctly and packed in accordance with the following specifications. Failure to adhere to these requirements may result in refusal to collect the goods, could incur excess surcharges and, in the event of damage to your goods whilst in transit, may cause insurance cover to be reduced or refused.

The pallet base and goods

Pallet base:
a) Must be of robust construction and suitable for the type of goods carried upon it
b) Must have no missing boards or chocks

Goods on the pallet:
a) Must not exceed the dimensions for the size of pallet entered
b) Must be stable when packed or placed on the pallet
c) Must not be top-heavy and must be stable enough to undergo at least six transhipments
