What is an oversized pallet?

When booking a pallet delivery, you MUST select the correct pallet size before moving further into the booking process.

If your items exceed the maximum height, length or width of a full pallet, you would need to look at other options.

An oversized pallet is exactly what you think: a pallet large enough to carry items that are ‘oversized’.

Items that are too large for a full pallet would cause overhang, which may result in damaging them or even other pallets for that matter.

We have more details on our website to help you understand whether you require an oversized pallet and what 'oversized' means.

What is a full pallet?

A full pallet is the largest standard pallet size. 

The dimensions of a full pallet are: 120cm Length x 100cm Width x 220cm Height and have a maximum weight of 1,200kg.

If your items exceed either the length, width or height, then you will need to book an oversized pallet.

As you will be taking up additional space on the delivery vehicle, you will be charged accordingly based on the number of additional pallet spaces required.

How are oversized pallets measured?

An oversized pallet is a pallet that exceeds the dimensions of a standard pallet, be it by a few inches or even a few centimetres.

We DO NOT accept pallets with items that overhang, as this could result in damaged items or damage to other pallets.

Oversized pallets are essentially additional full pallets.

For example, if an item is longer than 120cm, 100cm wide and 220cm tall, you would only need to book 2 full pallet space.

However, if the item exceeds both the length and width of a full pallet, then you would have to book 4 full pallet spaces to ensure everything sits flush in the delivery vehicle.
