Large items and multiple boxes should be palletized before shipping. Make sure there is no overhang when boxes are stacked; they have to be distributed squarely. Pallets or skids come in standard sizes (48” x 40”) that can easily be purchased, or ask your local grocer or large retailers if they can provide you with one. Use heavy-duty plastic wrap to strap or secure your item(s) directly to the pallet. When items are palletized, be sure you have a dock loading station and fork lift at the pickup location and delivery destination. If your business does not have a dock or you are shipping from a residence, you must request a truck with a lift gate. There is an additional charge for added equipment options.
