What Is an Oversized Pallet?

When you're booking your pallet delivery, it's essential to select the right pallet size before you proceed any further.

If your items happen to exceed the maximum height, length, or width of a standard pallet, you'll need to explore alternative options.

An oversized pallet is pretty much what it sounds like: a pallet designed to accommodate larger items.

If your items are too big for a regular pallet, they might hang over the edges, potentially causing damage not only to themselves but also to other pallets.

We've got more information available on our website to help clarify whether you need an oversized pallet and what exactly qualifies as 'oversized'. Feel free to check it out for further guidance.


What is a full pallet?

A full pallet is largest of the standard pallet sizes. It measures in at 120cm in length, 100cm in width, and 220cm in height, with a weight limit of 1,200kg.

If your goods happens to stretch beyond those dimensions – whether it's longer, wider, taller or heavier – you'll want to go for an oversized pallet.

Keep in mind, though, that when you opt for an oversized pallet, you're also claiming more space on the delivery truck, so you'll be billed accordingly, based on the extra pallet spaces needed.


How are oversized pallets measured?

An oversized pallet is basically a pallet that transports goods that are larger than the standard size, whether it's just a bit bigger by a few inches or a few centimetres.

Please note that we cannot accept pallets with items that extend beyond the edges, as this can lead to damage to the items themselves or to other pallets in transit.

Think of oversized pallets as equivalent to extra full-sized pallets. For instance, if an item measures more than 120cm in length, 100cm in width, and 220cm in height, you'll only need to reserve space for 2 full pallets.

However, if the item exceeds the dimensions of a full pallet in both length and width, then you'll need to reserve space for 4 full pallets to ensure everything fits securely in the delivery vehicle.
