Pallet delivery services are becoming increasingly popular and that’s because the benefits are far ranging.
Pallets are an easy way to cheaply transport large items. The way many pallet networks operate in the UK means a vehicle will take a number of pallets at once from one location to a central hub, where another vehicle will pick up the pallets to be delivered in their area. This means the cost of the trip is shared between many customers, ensuring the cost can remain low. Of course this adds to its green credentials too!
There is much less of an opportunity for items to be damaged when being delivered on a pallet, this is because they are only handled by fork lift trucks – so there is never any chance your fragile goods will be thrown from one man to another!
Small businesses that sell large items can utilise pallet delivery companies for customers who buy numerous items and are unable to transport them themselves. As the vehicles always travel to the central hub and then deliver to their designated area the delivery is relatively quick. Even if your pallet won’t fill a HGV it can be taken to the depot with others, regardless of where their destination maybe.
