How do you prepare a pallet for shipping?
Your pallet should be safely packed in a way that respects the standard pallet shipping rules.
To pack a pallet you will need to:
- Get a pallet
- Place the objects you want to ship onto the pallet.
If you have a number of packages containing various objects, it’s important that each object, in each package is well protected using shock-absorbent materials. Seal the packages with packing tape and place them on top of each other, and/or side-by-side.
Avoid letting any part of your package overhang the perimeter of the pallet.
If you have only one bulky or heavy object, such as an appliance (washing machine, fridge, air-conditioner), furniture, sports equipment, mechanical components, etc., the object should be wrapped with protective materials, such as cardboard or polystyrene.
- Block the items together on your pallet using tape and packaging film, start at the base of the pallet and work up to the top.
For added security, use elastic ropes with hooks (bungees) to secure the load to the base of the pallet.
