Frequently Asked Questions
What Can I Send On A Pallet?
You would be amazed at some of the items suitable to go through a pallet network, anything from building materials, furniture, domestic appliances, machinery, job lots of smaller, boxed, stackable items going to one destination… The list goes on. Although pallet delivery is popular with businesses, it can also be an economical way of transporting goods for non-commercial purposes. If you have a large item or multiple large items, you will probably find that a courier will struggle to lift your goods. Large, heavy items are likely to fall outside of most courier companies’ standard size and weight regulations, so you will require a specialist pallet delivery service. Pallet delivery will ensure that your goods are moved safely and kept in good condition during the transportation process.
What Is A Pallet Network?
A pallet distribution network often comprises of a number of companies working closely together. They do this to provide efficient, cost-effective and comprehensive solutions to their customers.
Pallet networks operate on a cost-focused basis, where goods are collected and delivered via a range of different transport companies. Goods are often passed between each logistics carrier via regional hubs. For example, your goods may be collected from A and delivered to B on one carried, then collected from B and delivered to C on another carrier, etc. until the goods reach their end destination. This is often the cheapest way to send palletised goods, especially if the quantities are small. The deliveries are usually on a 48-hour basis throughout the UK. This method is most common in pallet transportation and is referred to as the “hub and spoke” model.
How Much Does Pallet Transportation Cost?
There are many factors involved that can affect the price of your pallet shipment, and for this reason, giving an estimate is tricky. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Highway Logistics and we will be able to give you a competitive quote.
We have listed below a number of factors that will affect the price of your delivery, so you can get an idea of what you can expect to pay:
Distance – If a pallet needs to be shipped overseas then this will incur extra customs costs and the extra distance and vehicles will cost more as well. Pallet shipping within the USA is cheaper for example, and although longer distance journeys will cost more, you may find that they cost less per mile.
Timings – If you need a national pallets delivered by a certain time then this may involve a pallet shipping company rushing your job, which may cost more as they need to send a vehicle exclusively for your shipment as opposed to putting it on a vehicle already making a journey.
Item Size – How big the items are will also affect the cost, as this will determine how much space they take up in a vehicle. We will discuss what option is best with you during our quotation process.
Locations Of Pickup And Delivery – Urban and densely populated areas are often easy to pick up from and will incur less of a cost than remote areas that require extra travel to pick up the item.
Time Of Year – Depending on the time of year, some routes may be closed due to adverse weather conditions, which could cause your journey to require a longer route.
