Pallet Presentation

Preparing your pallets for collection.

All goods carried by Shipley Transport Services must be palletised and suitable for road transportation. Goods must be secured to pallets via shrink wrap (including the top where possible) or by adequate plastic or metal banding. It is advised that machinery is crated.

Pallet weight must not exceed 1200 kgs and the dimensions of 120 x 100 x 200cm. Pallets that are sent in excess of the above, will be charged accordingly on footprint area. All goods requiring a tail lift off load must be securely packed on a four way entry pallet (with a minimum of 10cm clearance for pallet truck entry) and weigh no more than a 1000 kgs.

Please ensure all goods are clearly marked with address labels on two opposing sides of the pallet. There is a facility on our Online Booking System that allows you to print pallet labels and secure to them to the pallets.
