Pallets have become the darlings of DIY aficionados and Pinterest lovers. Yet there are many more options than the wooden pallets that have become so popular in up-cycling projects. Plastic pallets can offer businesses a cost-effective option for their shipping needs.
Plastic pallets are made from structural foam or thermoform, and they offer a durable and easily manageable shipping solution. The pallets are designed to stack neatly on top of each other and to withstand far more pressure than wood pallets.
Buying new pallets can put a crimp on your budget, no matter how necessary they may be for your business. Buying used plastic pallets can help you to get the materials you need for your shipping purposes while also keeping your overhead low to protect your profits. If you own an export business, you aren’t likely to get back any shipping materials that you can reuse, so buying used shipping products helps you to keep your costs low.
You may be able to source used plastic pallets by forming a partnership with a larger business in your area who wants to unload their older pallets instead of dealing with recycling them. However, it is much simpler — and a more realistic strategy — to search for them online.
Not all online retailers of used plastic pallets are the same, and quality can vary widely. It is important to find a retailer with a reputation for quality products and excellent service. Container Exchanger works with a number of well-known companies, such as Stratis, Rhrig, Hampel, Linpac and Orbis to offer used plastic pallets for sale at some of the best prices.
In addition, Container Exchanger buys used plastic totes and bins and offers to broker any used returnable packaging for your company. You can take advantage of a number of services to maximize the return on your investment, in addition to buying the used plastic pallets that you need.
