What Are the Pallet Sizes Allowed?

Our super reliable services are based around UK standard pallets, which cover a range of sizes, including quarters, halves, full-sized, and even oversized pallets.

If you're having a tough time figuring out which pallet size suits your needs, be sure to check out our handy pallet size guide. It breaks down the maximum dimensions permitted for each standard size in the UK.

We recommend giving this information a thorough read before you go ahead and book your pallet delivery. It'll help ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.

Can I send a Euro pallet? 

If you want to go with a Euro pallet for your pallet delivery, that's absolutely fine – we're here to accommodate your choice. We simply request that you take a look at our pallet size guide before making your booking.

As long as your Euro pallet stays within the specified dimensions, you're good to go for shipping your goods through PalletOnline.

The measurements listed in our pallet size guide represent the maximum allowable dimensions within the Palletline network.

What if my goods exceed the maximum dimensions? 

When it comes to loading your pallet, if your goods happen to exceed the standard pallet dimensions, no worries – you'll just need to reserve some extra space with what we call an "oversized pallet."

These oversized pallets measure 2.4m x 1m with a maximum height of 2.2 meters.

It's worth noting, though, that when you opt for an oversized pallet, certain additional services, like tail lifts, lift assists, and our Pallet and Wrap service, won't be available due to network terms.

If your goods are within the 2m x 1m range, you have the option to book two regular single pallet spaces, and this will grant you access to our tail lift and lift assist options.

Please be aware that the maximum width for the pump truck (along with the tail lift) and lift assist is 2 meters. For anything wider than this, you'll need to have a forklift on hand for safe handling.

If you ever find yourself unsure about whether you've selected the right pallet size for your order, don't hesitate to reach out to us through Live Chat – we're here to help!


How do you lift the pallets onto the delivery vehicle?

Once you've picked out your preferred collection and delivery dates, you have the option to add a tail lift to your cart before proceeding to checkout.

This handy add-on ensures our driver takes care of the heavy lifting, leaving you with one less thing to worry about!

Our collection and delivery tail lifts are provided free of charge. However, it's essential to note that the items you're shipping should weigh no more than 750kg.

If your goods happen to tip the scales between 750kg and 1,000kg, we recommend upgrading to a lift assist. This ensures the safety of both you, our driver, and your goods.

If your goods exceed the 1,000kg mark, you'll need a forklift at both the collection and delivery points.

Please be aware that we don't offer forklift rental services, so you'll need to arrange for one yourself.
