How to send something very big by courier

June 18, 2012

Couriers can handle most things.

Odd shapes, bulky items, even very small delicate parcels…

In truth, unless an item is prohibited, you can use a courier to get almost anything from A to B safely, quickly and cost effectively.

But what happens if your parcel weighs more that 30kg?

At this weight it becomes a little tricky for one person to handle and so you may need to seek out an alternative.

If that’s the case, pallet delivery could be just the solution.

With a pallet delivery you place your item(s) on top of a wooden pallet, and then secure them. They are then collected by a pallet company and delivered to your chosen destination.

This service gives you lots of flexibility. Here are five examples when a pallet delivery could be very useful:

  1. To buy a collection only eBay item.
  2. To post a very heavy item.
  3. To post an item that’s not easy to package.
  4. To post large items that are too big to go in a box.
  5. To despatch items that are an unusual shape

If you book a pallet collection with collectmyparcel.com, our experienced pallet partner – Palletways will handle your items. And it could only take 2 days for your items to reach their destination.

In addition, your items will be traceable with on-line tracking facilities to give you extra piece of mind.

Next time you need to post large or very heavy items, book a pallet collection.

Palletways opens a new depot

March 23, 2012

There are times when you want to courier something that’s a little larger than your average parcel. For those occasions a pallet delivery is a great solution.

Our pallet partner is Palletways and we were pleased to see in the news recently that they have opened a new depot in Dartford, Kent and created 5 new jobs. In total the new depot will employ 14 people, some of which will relocate from other Palletways locations.

Palletways Managing director Andy Turner said: “The move to open a new depot in Dartford is part of a wider national and international growth strategy. Over the years, we have built a very efficient delivery network, and Dartford presented a number of good business opportunities which would allow us to replicate the success we’ve had in other parts of the UK and mainland Europe.”

The Dartford depot will collect and deliver freight to customers in Dartford and nearby Bromley. In addition, the depot will be involved in the onward shipment of freight for delivery both within the UK and Ireland as well as European countries including Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Benelux.

The news of this expansion follows hot on the heels of the announcement earlier this month of a 7% growth in the Palletways group turnover.

Here at collectmyparcel.com we’d like to congratulate Palletways on their expansion, and wish the new Dartford depot lots of luck.

Palletways Southern Ireland partner successfully deliver their one millionth pallet

September 14, 2011

The Palletways hot air balloon that recently crossed the English Channel in a successful Guinness World Record attempt has made another appearance.

This time it visited the Transland Group Depot in Naas, Co. Kildare.

It made this appearance to help celebrate the one millionth pallet delivery by Transland Group through their Irish Hub.

Now that’s a lot of pallets!

Transland Group has been Palletways Southern Ireland member since January 2010. The Palletways website says this partnership has helped accelerate the achievement of the 1000000 Irish pallet delivery.

Managing Director of Transland Group, Kieran Conlon, says:

“We at Transland are very proud to have reached this milestone. We have all worked hard to establish a pallet distribution service that is second to none, through service features such as online booking and electronic proof of delivery. With the help of Palletways, we look forward to celebrating the two millionth pallet delivery.”

The Palletways network has more than 100 members (of which Transland Group is one) making it the UK’s largest pallet network. It is also collectmyparcel.com’s chosen pallet partner. The Palletways network

“provides a range of express distribution services for small consignments of palletised freight, including next day, economy and timed delivery options across the UK and Ireland, as well as a daily cross-Channel distribution service to mainland Europe.  Utilising each other’s’ resources, all the member companies deliver goods to market faster and more cost effectively than traditional haulage methods”.
