Significance Of Repairing Timber Pallets

by Vinsky Sarah Marketing Manager

Timber pallets are used practically in every type of shipping, especially in the agricultural industry. 

Whether the goods are delivered by plane, train, truck or boat, they are often stacked on the top of pallets to help make the goods easier to transport.

As a result, most pallets experience wear and tear throughout the process. Pallets in Sydney break, become damaged and/or unsuitable for ongoing use. 

Fortunately, timber pallets are repairable and recyclable. If these pallets experience any damage, then they can be repaired and used again.

If they are no longer functional, they can be recycled. The longer timber pallets stay in use, the better it is for the environment.

If for any specific reason the pallet is broken or damaged beyond repair then the term recycled is used.

Repairing or recycling your used or broken timber pallets is the answer to saving money and going green for you as a business.

Remanufacturing, recycling, reconditioning are some of the terms used for pallets that have been constructed or repaired in part with the used pallet material for re-usage.

All these pallet types are cost-efficient alternatives to new timber pallets. Furthermore, all these pallets can effectively deliver goods of all shapes and sizes. 

If you are still wondering the significance of repairing timber pallets, listed below are some of the pointers that provide information on how timber pallets can be a smart choice for businesses.

  • Save money 

The cost of frequently purchasing new pallets can add up quickly. As a result, the larger number of new timber pallets you need to purchase, the more expensive it becomes for your business. 

Repairing and recycling timber pallets can prove to be much cheaper and will allow your business to continue to use the same pallets you originally purchased.

  • Eco-friendly

Repairing and reusing timber pallets will extensively help the environment. Some businesses may choose to discard some of the used and broken pallets, creating quite a bit of waste that goes into landfills. 

Deciding to repair and recycle the broken timber pallets is eco-friendly because these pallets will be used again. Pallet repairs enable reusing pallets which helps save trees used to collect the material for pallets, saves energy from producing the pallets and helps keep the landfills empty of recyclable material. This is an effective combination for businesses that want the advantages of protecting the environment and promoting themselves as “green” businesses.

  • Safety 

If a pallet is damaged or broken, it can potentially prove to be a safety hazard to anyone working around the pallet. There is also the possibility of the load on the pallet falling or tipping over due to stored broken pallet waste. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that businesses opt for pallet repairs over purchasing new ones.

In conclusion, these above-stated are some of the pointers that provide information on the significance of repairing timber pallets.
