"Just strap it to a pallet."
Why is it that when we are asked to "Just strap it to a pallet", we try to offer a higher level of packing? Take a look at the photo below. This item originated elsewhere but made a pit stop at our facility to get repacked when the "strap it to a pallet" method clearly didn't hold up against the rigors of LTL transportation.
We understand that full wood crating isn't always required but it is our job to get your shipment to its destination safely. Keep in mind that the packing shown above does not comply with the NMFC packing standards and therefore can void the carrier insurance release values. The packing below is our recommended alternative and is commonly foam lined for additional protection.
