Pallets are useful equipment that make storing and shipping more efficient. However, when you command several hundreds or thousands of pallets, this can become a big inefficiency in and of itself if you do not have a way to store them effectively. Stray pallets get in the way, slowing down productivity of your workers and equipment. Furthermore, they present serious health hazards which you can be held liable for. Nestable plastic shipping pallets are the perfect solution to this problem. These types of pallets are precision crafted to fit (nest) into each other as you stack units that are not in use. This ensures that you are using the least amount of space to store unused pallets, which maximizes the amount of room you have to store actual product, as well as directing employees and equipment safely. In the event that you need to rearrange your warehouse schematics or transfer your pallet units to another location, the nesting ability of these pallets also makes it much easier and faster to transport several units all at once, minimizing the amount of trips that you have to make within or between warehouses.
How much space can nestable plastic shipping pallets save? The amount will vary with the size and type of pallets that you are using, but on average you can expect to securely fit between forty and fifty standard units within a six foot stack.
Prices will vary on nestable plastic shipping pallets. However, the price per unit is mostly dependent on weight holding capacity. Heavy duty nestable plastic shipping pallets will typically sell for about fifty dollars to eighty five dollars per unit. Heavy duty models will have a 10,000 pound to 30,000 pound static capacity, and a 4,000 pound to 5,000 dynamic capacity. Generally, the more weight a unit can take the more expensive it will be. Light duty nestable plastic shipping pallets will typically be priced at fifteen dollars to twenty five dollars per unit. Light duty and small models will usually have a static weight holding capacity of 3,000 pounds to 6,000 pounds, and dynamic weight holding capacity of 1,200 pounds to 1,400 pounds. Standard, medium duty units will sell for about twenty five dollars to thirty five dollars. These units have a static weight capacity of 6,000 pounds to 8,000 pounds, and dynamic capacity of 2,000 pounds to 2,400 pounds.
There are several models available. The model that you should purchase depends on the unique needs and requirements of your business and industry. However, there are some features which make certain models better than others. For example, smooth lipped edges and ergonomic handles make a unit much easier and safer to work with as they allow for a better grip. Reinforced legs is another great feature to have. Nestable pallets have at least nine legs. If just one of them gives out, it will render your pallet useless. Having reinforced legs will ensure that you are getting a safe and reliable pallet that will last for several years. For solid deck pallets, we recommend that you purchase a model that has ribbed reinforcement underneath so that the deck will not cave in or warp. We also highly recommend that you buy models that feature anti slide and anti tilt technology. This will help ensure that your cargo and inventory remain stationary, keeping your equipment, product, and employees safe.
