Your questions about pallet boxes answered

We at Sadlers are known for the quality of our boxes, none more so than our new and used pallet boxes. So who uses pallet boxes and what are they for? Read our handy Q&A to help you decide which one is right for you.

What are pallet boxes used for?

Cardboard pallet boxes provide extra protection when shipping goods on wooden pallets. These boxes minimise the risk of damage during transit. So if you need to ship products as safely as possible on pallets, you'll need pallet boxes. These boxes are also used for storage of big and bulky items.

Do pallet boxes come with a pallet?

There are different options depending on your requirements. If you do not have a supply of wooden pallets then choose a box that includes a pallet. If you have plenty of surplus pallets to use, you can buy pallet boxes without pallets. We normally have all of these options.

Do I need a heat treated pallet?

Heat treated pallets are often used when exporting goods. Our heat treated and stamped pallets allow you to comply with export regulations.

How big is a pallet box? What are the standard sizes?

We sell two types; boxes to fit a conventional pallet (1200mm x 1000) and those to fit a Euro pallet (1200mm x 800mm). For those two pallet sizes we sell various boxes, used or new, depending on your requirements.

How strong are they?

Many of our pallet boxes are double wall, but we do sell tri-wall too occasionally - keep checking back for the product in the video below. They are made from strong heavy duty material which is constructed from three layers of fluting sandwiched between four liners. Take a look at our video below to see the triple wall pallet boxes in action.

Are the boxes flat when I receive them?

All cardboard pallet boxes are supplied in a collapsed format and are very easy to assemble. The box arrives flat - simply remove the lid and unfold the sleeve which fits into the base, fill the box and place the lid on top. Our instructional videos demonstrate how easy it is.
