Been using Defenda couriers about 5-6 times this last year, the service has been great. Val is always there when I arrive to help remove the pallet and has it pre booked on ready to go up to the service facility we use in Yorkshire.

We used Defenda to distribute 60 parcels recently. Mark Derbyshire provided excellent customer service and communication. The job was completed quickly, successfully and to a high standard. Mark stayed in touch throughout the whole process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Defenda, particularly for large volumes of parcels.

London Pallet Delivery & Distribution Services

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

Many of our London 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 London 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 London

We produce solid build & collapsible wooden shipping crates & cases quickly for our customers in London. 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 London area in the afternoon to ensure they can meet deadlines & export their goods in compliant wooden boxes & packing cases.

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 & London delivery of timber pallets please contact us & a member of the team will be happy to advise.

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.
