What’s our Cheapest Plastic Pallet?
To be honest, that’s a tough question. But I understand why you’re asking!
But first, a bit of pallet advice:
The cheapest plastic pallet isn’t necessarily the best plastic pallet for your application!
Considering that approximately 100 people per year die from forklift/pallet injuries, making sure that the pallet we sell is sufficient for it’s application is something we take seriously.
In the past 15 years, there have been dozens of customers that have not taken our pallet advice, only to regret it later. Fortunately, these cases resulted in an exchange for a more durable pallet and were not the result of an injury.
Just Answer The Question!
If we put aside the issue of application and look purely at price, we have several plastic pallets that match the ‘up front’ pricing of wood pallets. I say ‘up front’ because plastic pallets also have less tangible cost savings.
What are the hidden plastic pallet savings?
- freight cost savings
- lower frequency of replacement
- potentially lower insurance premiums
- less operations down time due to injury (due to nails and splinters commonly caused by wood pallets)
- less product damage (again, no nails / splinters)
- reduced risk of product and contamination (vital for food and pharmaceuticals)
Lower Freight Costs
Because plastic pallets often weigh less than wood pallets, it costs less money to ship them to your warehouse and to your customers.
Lower Frequency Of Replacement
Plastic pallet durability is excellent, often outlasting wood pallets. The longer plastic pallet lifespan means you will replace them less frequently- and buying less often saves you money!
OK! But what are your cheapest plastic pallets?
All of our pallets are priced competitively, but I’d like to mention one pallet that stands out in our pallet catalog.
