How to Choose the Right Pallet Supplier & Manufacturer

Pallets are a great choice for Brisbane businesses looking to improve efficiencies when exporting, storing, and transporting goods. They make loading and unloading easier, enable easy movement of heavy products, and offer added protection for your goods.

However, you need to source then from a reliable Brisbane pallet supplier that specialises in high quality pallets. Sub-standard items can present safety risks and can also damage valuable goods.

Below are the criteria you should consider when selecting your pallet manufacturer and supplier:

Customer service and communication

How are you treated when you call up and make initial inquiries into hiring or buying pallets? How is the customer service– are you made to feel like an important potential customer or just another number?

The quality of pallets

Check the quality of the pallets that the supplier provides. Does it follow all the regulations and safety standards for pallets? If you need to ship overseas, are the IPPC (International Plant Protection Convention) standards met and are the pallets stamped to prove this? Also check pallets for visible damage – both structural damage and surface spills.

Flexibility and customisation of pallets

If you need customised pallet designs, can the manufacturer cater to your exact requirements? Does it make pallets in your preferred materials and sizes? Some Brisbane suppliers can only provide the standard sizes and do not have the flexibility to make made-to-measure pallets of different materials.

Past clients

What is the track record of the pallet supplier? Does it have a demonstrable record of success with companies of a similar size type to you? This is a good indication of whether they will be able to meet your ongoing requirements.

Value for money

Last but not least – what prices are you quoted for your pallets and skids? Are they competitive and are you receiving the best deal available to you in Brisbane? It may not be wise to always go with the cheapest, but make sure you are getting value for money.
