Loads of people wonder how much pallets are. As well as, thinking what type of pallet is best for my needs whether that’s wooden or plastic pallets. Or a pallet that can hold large or small quantities. And how these factors effect the price of a pallet. So, in this blog we will be answering the most wanted questions around this subject and why some pallets may be more expensive than others.
How much are wooden pallets?
The price of wooden pallets varies depending on many things. One being the condition of the pallet meaning whether the pallet is second hand or brand new. An example of this would be the comparison between a New Euro sized ‘TIPCI’ pallet and a second-hand Euro pallet. As the cost of a brand-new Euro pallet is priced at £18.00 compared to a second-hand Euro pallet which is priced at £9.00.

Another aspect where the cost of wooden pallets can vary depending on the strength and stability of the pallet. For instance, a pallet that’s got a longer life expectancy and ability to be used a number of times through supply chains without any damages or breaks. This may have a have an impact on the value of the pallet. Compared to a pallet which has weaker characteristics and is not used for larger object loading purposes.
The price of wood compared to plastic
Both wooden and plastic pallets have many pros and cons with when in use. However, there is a massive difference in value between the two. Though wooden pallets are easily recyclable and can be repaired if damaged. A Plastic pallet Is generally three times the price of a wooden pallet.
This may be because Plastic is more durable than wood and is less likely to break down on repeated trips. Plastic pallets are also ideal for carrying heavy cargo during shipping and being moved around via forklift in a warehouse. Furthermore, plastic pallets are more able to withstand harsher weather elements in transit compared to wood pallets. Also, the fact plastic do not absorb moisture, common issues with wood pallets such as rot, infestation, fumigation, and odour absorption are no longer a concern. The smooth surface of plastic pallets can be easily and thoroughly cleaned between uses. Plastic pallets are perfect for industries with regulatory and hygiene requirements such as pharmaceutical and food and beverage.
