Can I send an engine on a pallet?
There are a number of steps that need to be followed when shipping an engine through our pallet network. Please read the information below carefully before booking your engine pallet delivery.
Stage 1: Cleaning & Draining Fluids
Very Important - Please ensure that the engine is clean and free from any liquids (including water). Liquids need to be drained from the engine prior to collection. You can wrap the engine in an absorbent material.
Stage 2: Securing the Engine
The engine will need to be placed in the middle of the pallet. Materials such as bubble wrap and ratchet straps can be used which will help to protect and secure the engine. The pallet will need to be wrapped and strapped to ensure the engine can be moved safely and securely.
We advise that there are at least 3 inches of excess pallet surrounding the engine. This is incase of any movement whilst in transit and prevents the engine from overhanging on the pallet.
With these collection and deliveries, your goods will need to be stabilised to stop them from tipping or moving. This will also help to prevent damage whilst in transit.
Stage 3: Final Steps to Prepare for Pallet Delivery
When sending your engine, the pallet base will need to be strong enough to support the load and with all of our pallet delivery services. Collection and delivery must be made from and to hard-standing ground.
