Carlisle Pallet Delivery & Distribution Services

When it comes to pallet delivery, it is often far more cost effective to have Carlisle couriers deliver multiple pallets in a dedicated vehicle rather than send them through a pallet network.

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

Here at Defenda Couriers we input pallets into 3 pallet networks & provide dedicated vehicle delivery which is more secure and often cheaper so you can be sure of getting impartial advice about your pallet deliveries.

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

We produce solid & collapsible wooden shipping crates & cases quickly for our customers in Carlisle. 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 Carlisle 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.
