Some of the Pallet Man businesses do more than just work with pallets. Some of the businesses deliver the packaged merchandise to the next destination. While they are on hand to deliver pallets, they know how to stack them and have the trucks handy, not only have the truck handy but have the forklifts and pallet lifting capabilities to move them. It would only make sense to deliver the loaded products to one location or to many.
Delivery men can unload your merchandise if you find you have no man available. That can happen and it usually does when all else is falling apart. One Man calls in ill and other quits and you are left with men already allotted for other tasks. A pallet driver is a good man to call on to get that incoming load unloaded.
A series of wacky Utubes have been generated, one of a truck loaded down enormously high with pallets on a too-small truck making its way to picking up more pallets. A group of young men follows its progress as it tilts and wobbles around corners and along busy streets, expecting any minute the entire load to shift and fall, but the driver, who actually dares to climb on this listing tower knows how to bind the slippery pallets and does a good job of maneuvering the too-small truck. The driver has probably learned from experience how to strap them down. Likely he has stopped and picked up pieces of pallets a few times.
We all have tempers and sometimes they flare at unusual times over unusual matters. Watch a man who is trying to keep his parking lot clean to attract customers or just wants to keep the lot clean, get angry because his pallets sydney collection agency has forgotten to come and the extra used pallets sit out in the rain taking up space. Or the bit and pieces of pallets lay in an ugly heap around the trash pick-up area making his entire place look bad. He will rant and rave and make everyone else’s day bad because he is upset. He has agreed to pay a fee to have this rubbish picked up and where are they? Anyone should be willing to make money. He has perfectly good pallets for sale and those usually get picked up right away. Why not these rubbish bits?
Pallets take wood and wood is becoming scarce. We are finding cabinets and books shelves made of plywood or corrugated wood products, glue, and shreds of wood stuck together. Man is learning to appreciate the trees in the forest. Even though the wood in pallets often looks rugged, it is wood and not good to be wasted. Pallet companies know this and their work improves the carbon footprint of industry, which means that they don’t waste the wood.
Due to this consideration, the pallet companies have made sure to pick up bits and pieces and have use for them. If they can use any wood at all they sort it and save it for when needed. The worst of the bits they put in a chipper to be used in gardening. Larger bits are used in other repairs as pallets come in many sizes. If there is any way to use the bits and pieces, they use them.
And all companies try to keep their prices low and competitive. If they are to get business and keep business, they must keep their prices within the range of other like businesses. And lastly, now there are plastic pallets, and plastic pallets will change the industry. Will these pallets be stored on-site or will that be a problem? Will the pallet companies still be needed to pick them up, keep them in shape, and return them? Will they prove to be too expensive? Will they further damage the ecology?
