What Can Your Birmingham Couriers Deliver?

What can your Birmingham couriers deliver? That’s a question we are regularly asked, and whilst many people associate couriers with delivering small parcels or documents: our Birmingham couriers have a wide range of vehicles at their disposal. This means we can collect & deliver anything from letters and documents to single pallets or multiple pallets. In fact our Luton vans with curtain sides can carry up to 8 pallets if needed. So whenever you need same day collection & delivery of pallets or parcels in Birmingham, simply get in touch and we will organise one of our local same day Birmingham couriers to collect your items quickly & deliver them to a Birmingham address or to anywhere else in the U.K that you choose.

We can often provide two man deliveries in Birmingham when necessary, even at short notice. So whenever you need a two man courier delivery get in touch to book.

Larger loads that can’t be handled by our Birmingham couriers can be transported in our HGVs, and like with our van deliveries they can often be organised at very short notice when a same day collection & delivery of bulk pallets is needed. As a guide, our artics can collect full loads of up to 26 pallets from Birmingham locations for any last minute deliveries that you need. Many smaller pallet quantities that don’t amount to a full artic load but exceed what can be transported by van can be collected & transported in one of our smaller heavy goods vehicles. For these collections we can organise your Birmingham pallet collections in 7.5 tonne, 18 tonne or 26 tonne trucks. Box or curtain side lorries with tail lifts & curtain sides are available if required.

What is an ADR Courier?

As professional Birmingham couriers we appreciate that there are times when clients in Birmingham will need to send hazardous materials either as palletised goods or as individual parcels and will therefore need licensed Birmingham ADR couriers to transport their load. Our ADR couriers have undertaken additional training & been licensed to carry hazardous materials or dangerous goods safely. It is illegal to send certain goods with couriers that are not licensed to carry them and it is therefore imperative that CDG regulations are complied with during the carriage of dangerous goods. You will therefore be reassured to know we have a large number of Birmingham courier drivers that have undergone extensive ADR training; so we are usually capable of collecting & transporting your hazardous goods quickly when a same day collection & delivery of hazardous materials is required.

Birmingham Pallet Delivery & Distribution Services

Need a Birmingham pallet delivery or distribution service? When it comes to pallet delivery in Birmingham, it’s often far more cost effective to have pallets delivered on a same day delivery service by our Birmingham couriers in dedicated vehicles – rather than send them through a pallet network overnight.

Many of our Birmingham pallet customers were extremely pleased to find they could have pallets delivered for under £15.00 + VAT per pallet. This price obviously depends on the number of pallets & the distance between the collection & delivery point, but it highlights that Birmingham pallet distribution doesn’t always work out cheaper through the pallet network system.

Of course there’s a place for pallet network delivery & as a complete transport provider our Birmingham couriers can provide pallet delivery in dedicated vehicles. But as a company Defenda Couriers can also input pallets into 3 pallet networks when it makes sense. Something which allows us to offer clients an economy pallet distribution service for less urgent pallets. Because we offer all types of pallet transport you can be absolutely sure of getting impartial advice about how best to handle your particular Birmingham pallet deliveries. So simply contact to discuss your pallet deliveries today.

Get Strong Custom Made Wooden Shipping Crates, Cases & Pallets In Birmingham

We produce solid & collapsible wooden shipping crates & cases quickly for our customers in Birmingham. Short lead times are essential when our clients need an ISPM 15 certified crate or case to meet a tight shipping deadline. Our case makers therefore work incredibly hard to minimise build times and often we can even turn urgent jobs around in a single day, receiving an order in the morning and delivering crates & cases to a client in or around the Birmingham area in the afternoon.

In addition to producing quality ISPM15 heat treated wooden packing cases & crates for goods being exported to countries with untreated timber restrictions, we also produce bespoke collapsible clip lock cases made from plywood & OSB which are exempt from the need to be IPPC ISPM15 certified for export.

Our bespoke ISPM15 open wooden pallets can be custom made in sizes to suit the footprint & weight of goods being exported. For information on lead times & Birmingham delivery of timber pallets please contact us & a member of the team will be happy to advise. Or visit defendacrates.co.uk

Please remember that since the UK exited the EU, restrictions on untreated timber apply to member states. Other regular shipping destinations for British exporters where timber packaging needs to be ISPM 15 certified & wheat stamped, include: the USA, Australia and Canada.

Used wooden pallets can also be bought. For more information check out pallets4sale.uk
