Pallets

Do you need to send a pallet to another location in the UK or internationally? Perhaps you need machinery transporting transcontinental?

World Options can ship the majority of items to thousands of locations across the globe. This includes everything from personal and household effects to motor vehicles, antiques, plant machinery and industrial equipment. Using our dedicated network of air, sea and ground freight, we offer pickup and delivery services for all major international destinations.

From single pallets to full load consignments, we have the right solution to deliver your pallets safely, reliably and effectively at a time to suit you and your customer.

Booking pallets online couldn't be simpler! All Domestic, European Economy and Express Worldwide destinations can be booked via the shipping portal and can be picked up on the same day. The process is completely automated.

World Options recommends the following for protecting your goods:

  • Add load protector pads to the top and bottom of the pallet and corner or edge boards that run from top to bottom
  • Tightly shrink wrap your goods and add the correct labelling to the outer layer and all four sides. Pallets will be stacked unless specified
  • Use banding/strapping for extra stability
  • Ensure all items are drained or bagged before they are collected, leaking items will be held back or returned.

For international economy services, for pallets you will be required to obtain a quote from your account manager, this normally takes around 24-48 hours, dependent upon availability. In most cases economy services use passenger airlines and are priced upon availability.

Other options available unless specified are as follows:

Multi pallet/groupage services

  • Tail lift deliveries
  • Handball at the point of delivery
  • Reverse and third-party pallet collections
