Within these standard pallet and euro pallet dimensions, you can often book as full, half or quarter pallets depending on your requirements. The type of pallet is determined by the weight and it's height as detailed above. 


Not only do we deliver standard sized pallets, we also can handle your oversized pallets and because we aren't part of a pallet network our pricing structure and restrictions can be tailored to suit your needs. 


What is the difference between a standard pallet and a euro pallet?

The difference between the two is the size of these pallets as detailed above.

How are my goods handled and transshipped?

You don't need to worry about your goods been transhipped and handled numerous times with us, as everything is collected and delivered direct from our depot in Halifax.


How do I send a pallet or parcel?

Firstly, you will require a quote on your pallet or parcel. To do this, either fill out our Request a Quote form found at the top of this page, make sure you fill out all of the information and we will get back to you with a price as soon as possible. Alternatively email or give us a call on 01422 340 821.

What are the dimension and weight limits?

For full standard pallets, the load must not be bigger than the base of the pallet, it must weigh under 1000kg and it must not sit higher than 200cm. For half pallets, the load must weigh under 500kg and sit lower than 100cm and for quarter pallets, the load must weigh no more than 250kg and must sit lower than 60cm. Visit our pallet guideline page for more information. Don’t forget that with us not being in a network we can handle oversized pallets and you won’t be charged double rate. We are flexible with our pallets spaces and pricing.

What if I’m sending multiple items?

If you’re sending multiple items on one pallet, each item needs to be wrapped and packaged securely to protect it, but at the same time, each individually packaged item needs to fit onto the pallet with no overhang and needs to be packaged securely onto the pallet, this is so there is enough space for other pallets next to yours.

Can I send a piece of machinery?

If you need to send a piece of machinery, providing a pallet can accommodate one, you will need to ensure that the engine is fully drained of all oil and any other liquids, as well as a hole is to be left in the pallet wrap so the dipstick can be accessed easily. If oil leaks from your pallet onto any other, you will be liable for any damage caused.
