Can I Send an Engine on a Pallet?

Can I send an engine on a pallet? 

You can send an engine on a pallet with PalletOnline, but there are a few things you need to know first...


How do I prepare an engine?

First, you must ensure your engine is clean and free from all liquids, including residual fluids like water. 

The best way to do this is to place your engine on an absorbent material, drain ALL oil from the engine and then allow time for the material to soak up any residual liquids. 

Your engine will be inspected at the collection point; If there are any liquids present, the driver will leave without your engine and, sadly, you will still be charged. 


How do I secure an engine for transit? 

Your engine MUST be placed at the centre of the pallet. 

Using materials like bubble wrap and ratchet straps can prove helpful when securing and protecting the engine. 

To ensure safe and secure transit of your engine, it will need to be wrapped and strapped before collection.

We recommend having at least 3 inches of excess pallet surrounding the engine in case of movement during transit; That way, your engine won't come loose. 

This also helps to prevent the engine from overhanging the pallet, which is a big no-go in logistics!

What final steps do I need to take? 

Just before you book your engine pallet delivery service, please make sure the base of your pallet is strong enough to support the engine in transit. 

There must also be hard-standing ground at the collection AND delivery address; We cannot operate pallet trucks or tail lifts on gravel or grass, for example.
