Packing Requirements

EuropeanPallet is a network pallet distribution system. From collection point to delivery point, the pallet or pallets on which your goods are packed or secured, will be transhipped a minimum of eight times.

In the event of damage to your goods whilst in transit, insurance cover may be reduced or refused if the following requirements are not adhered to:

Pallet base:

a) Must be of robust construction and suitable for the type of goods carried upon it
b) Must have no missing boards or chocks

Goods on the pallet:
a) Must not exceed the dimensions for the size of pallet entered
b) Must not overhang the pallet edges
c) Must be stable when packed or placed on the pallet
d) Must not be top-heavy and must be stable enough to undergo eight transhipments
e) Must be firmly and properly secured to the pallet base by shrink-wrap, fibre or steal banding, chains, or any other appropriate means
f) Must have sufficient packaging, such as bubble wrap, cardboard, or any other appropriate packaging to reasonably protect the goods

If you need to make any changes to a consignment after your booking has been placed, please contact us as soon as possible at orders@europeanpallet.co.uk


Oversize Pallets

Please note that we have a height limit of 180cm for all consignments

We are able to ship pallets that exceed the standard width/depth or contain goods that overhang. However, these are charged at one pallet per pallet space or part thereof. To process such a consignment, please enter the number of pallet-spaces as though they were separate pallets, and specify "1 x Oversize" in the 'further info' box below the collection address

For example, a pallet of 160cm width x 100cm depth x 140cm height would exceed our standard dimensions due to the width and would need to be entered as two full pallets.

- Dangerous goods (Class 1, Class 6.2 and Class 7)
- Tobacco
- Cigarettes
- Bank notes or coins
- Weapons, ammunitions and explosives
- Livestock and live plants
