Before Delivery

What is the difference between pallet and parcel delivery?

Pallet delivery is a convenient method of transporting heavy items and large volumes of grouped stock. Sending goods on a pallet often provides better protection for the consignment and tends to be the most cost-efficient way of moving goods. 

Parcels are individual packages ideal for smaller shipments or lighter deliveries.

Can I send my pallet abroad?

Yes, absolutely. If you’re sending a pallet overseas from the UK there are several important items to consider and documents that you need to prepare:

  • Commercial invoice
  • EORI number for you and the recipient of your delivery
  • Packing list
  • Commodity codes
  • Certificates or licences for restricted goods
  • Nomination of a Direct Representative if a freight forwarder is handling your consignment
  • Deferred Duty Account
  • Incoterms

For all overseas enquiries, please contact hello@sendyourpallet.com.

Will VAT be charged when sending a pallet?

Yes, VAT will be included in our pallet delivery quote. VAT invoices are provided for all consignments.

What are the different UK pallet sizes?

The standard UK pallet dimensions are 120cm x 100cm x 220cm.

Depending on the height and weight of your consignment, you will need to select one of the following options:

Micro: 120cm x 100cm x 60cm (max 150kg)

Quarter: 120cm x 100cm x 60cm (max 250kg)

Half: 120cm x 100cm x 100cm (max 500kg)

Full: 120cm x 120cm x 220cm (max 1000kg)

How do I prepare my goods for pallet delivery?

Firstly, you must ensure your goods are in a safe state to transport and free from any fluids, pressurised substances, or anything else that may cause harm or damage in transit. Then you need to ensure your goods are securely packaged and stacked on the pallet, with the weight evenly distributed. Use shrink wrap or strapping to secure the items to the pallet and label them clearly with destination details. 

Take a look at our step-by-step guide to wrapping a pallet.

During Delivery

Can I track my pallet delivery during transit?

Yes, most pallet delivery services provide tracking facilities that allow you to monitor the progress of your shipment in real-time. You'll typically receive a tracking number with your booking confirmation, which you can then use to access the tracking information. 

For all sendyourpallet.com tracking enquiries please use our live chat or email our team on hello@sendyourpallet.com.

What insurance cover do I have as standard?

All consignments are covered by our standard insurance up to the value of £1,000 - if the value of your consignment exceeds £1,000 and you would require additional cover, please contact the team at hello@sendyourpallet.com.

Are you a member of the Road Haulage Association?

Yes, we are proud members of the Road Haulage Association's (RHA's) and follow the RHA freight forwarding Terms and Conditions across our business and on all our consignments.

It is good practice to familiarise yourself with these before using our services so that you can then have confidence in understanding exactly what coverage you have just in case things don't pan out the way they intended to.
