Palletizing Services

Packing Service, Inc. can palletize any of your items such as boxes, furniture, equipment and machinery.

Palletized freight is determined by weight and size.  If you have several different size pieces or a lot of boxes you are shipping, palletizing helps the shipment remain together and provides increased protection from damage. If you are unsure Packing Service, Inc. can help you determine if your items should be palletized or crated for transport.

Packing Service, Inc. usually recommends wood pallets with four-way forklift entry for standard jobs. Pallets with four-way entry help to improve handling and reduce damage to the shipment. Packing Service, Inc does provide other pallet solutions for overseas or international shipping. Let us know if you need a specific kind of pallet your shipment.

Packing Service, Inc. will repalletize if the product was palletized incorrectly by someone else.  Stacking pallets correctly requires oversight and management. Pallets that are the same size, same grade, and same material, and same type should be stacked together. This will prevent pallets from falling over.

We provide on-site palletizing services using heat shrink wrap, plastic shrink wrap, and industrial shrink wrap.

Packing Service, Inc. will go to a storage unit to palletize your item if the storage facility allows it. We had a customer who had a vending machine located in a storage unit in Pennsylvania and needed it palletized and shipped to Atlanta.  We went to the storage unit when it opened palletized the item then shipped it to the customer.

Shipping Services

We have a lot of hospitals that ship equipment nationwide. One of the doctors in the local clinic called us to ask how he can ship medical equipment that weighs over 450 lbs from Florida to California.  After he sent us the picture we decide to crate it and ship it because of the weight and different accessories that were attached to the unit. Although every situation is different we can asses if crating or palletizing would be better for shipping.

One company we packed and moved had 85 computers and 40 monitors that needed to be packed and shipped from Florida to New Mexico.  At the last minute the customer asked us to also pack the office documents, shrink wrap palletize boxes of files and ship them.  Packing Service, Inc. went to the warehouse packed the computers and monitors, put the files in boxes, shrink wrap palletized the boxes and then successfully shipped them in time for the companies grand opening.

We do a lot of relocation moves nationwide because people do not have the time to organize the different logistics of relocating.  Our customer got a new job and needed to move from New York to Chicago in less than 30 days.

We then palletized the gifted furniture and shipped it to his sister. Later that month the customer called to thanks us because he did not have the time to plan or organize his long distance move.
