WSI container tansport company Sydney on finding the best pallet supplier
Our experts in container transport Sydney know that not all pallet suppliers are the same, and to get the quality of pallets you require, it's important to do your research.
Here our containter transport company in Sydney have 5 questions you should ask before purchasing any pallets:
1. Are they insured for the product, public liability, and WorkCover?
In the event of damage to your product, you need to make sure the pallet manufacturer is covered in all aspects. Find out if their pallets, whether old or new are covered by full public liability insurance.
2. Can you see the insurance premiums or cover notes?
All legitimate businesses should have copies of proof of their insurance premiums. They will also make it easy for you to view them, should you ask to see them. If they don't have it, you will be exposed to the risk of broken pallets, stock loss, and potentially OH&S issues. 3. Do they deliver all over metro Melbourne?
3. Is a better price offered for bulk orders?
Many suppliers will offer a price break for ordering more volume. It’s not only to reward you for buying more, but these larger orders allow their warehouse to calculate for more efficiencies.
4. Do they custom build pallets?
Pallets are not a one-size-fits-all product. You need to make sure that your supplier can manufacture pallets to the exact dimensions you need, no matter how big or small.
5. Are the pallets ethically and environmentally sourced?
Is your pallet manufacturer buying from recognised timber producers who manage and re-grow plantation timber? Timber from overseas sources such as Indonesia can be non-compliant to Australian standards for forest management. Ensure your pallets comply with Australian standards.
