Have your LTL freight delivered in just three easy steps!
1 | Create Your Listing
The first thing to consider is how much time you have, and how long you’re willing to wait for delivery. Deliveries of this type are usually under the palletised delivery category, which means they are put onto pallets and then transferred and transported via a specific pallet courier. In order to find the best UK pallet delivery service for your needs, you need to give the company you’re using as much information as possible. This includes what the items you’re transporting are, whether they’re new or used, whether they’re for commercial use, and the size and weight. On the whole, a standard sized pallet measures 40x48”. You also need to decide whether your particular delivery will need a lift gate when it is being collected from your original address. It is important to give as much information as possible, including any possible obstructions or restrictions, such as whether collection is within an area of residential addresses.

You can then decide to go with one of these options, if it suits your needs, and contact the company for further information, or you can go to auction. It’s worth noting that the rates you will see first are not available for all LTL delivery shipments. If you go to auction, you will then begin to receive quotations from many different companies, all vying for your custom.
