Standard Pallet Delivery Service
As you might have guessed, pallets play an important role when it comes to our delivery services. We use wooden pallets to keep our deliveries as secure and safe as possible. Without the protection of pallets, large deliveries containing delicate items such as ceramics or glass could be in danger of breaking or damages during transportation. The pallets we use are made to fit large products including baths and shower enclosures. Since we have implemented these pallets, just about every order is now delivered in impeccable condition.
Our team of standard pallet deliveries is not insured when it comes to carrying an order into your house (this includes removal of packaging). This is an applicable rule regardless of your personal circumstances. This is why we must make sure each customer is prepared for their delivery, and that the right packaging materials have been supplied to complete the delivery. Here are our recommendations on upcycling and recycling options so that you know how to get rid of your pallets in an environmentally friendly way.
