CHRISTMAS TREE MADE FROM PALLETS

December 18, 2014 Thursday. Tags:

PALLETS

 

Whilst researching for an article, I kept running into images and DIY’s on how to make Christmas Tree from Pallets!…. Being easily distracted, I started saving my favorite images to share here on our Blog.

 

Some of these are completely impractical, especially if you have animals and children around. But using a Pallet certainly looks very creative and rustic for the unique look this Christmas.

This sort of article cannot be posted without a warning. Some timber Pallets might not be okay to have in your home. Be mindful of the germs from second hand ones and chemical exposure from treated ones (What does the Stamp on your pallet mean?).

MACHINERY EXPORT – WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER

December 09, 2014 Tuesday. Tags: , ,

MACHINERY EXPORT -

 

Moving machines interstate and overseas can be a challenging task. Depending on the size and value, the logistics and packaging can be an absolute nightmare especially if you’ve never had to do it before.

You may like to consider a project manager like UBEECO to work with you and bring it all together (here is an example video). Or you might be in a position to take care of it yourself. But what are the options, and how do you know which one is most suitable for you?

 

BUDGET

Having a budget is probably a good place to start and finish. If you only have $100 to spend, then I hope its a very very small and light machine you need to export.
You need to be realistic about the shipping and packaging costs, but your budget is likely to be derived by the what the value of your machine actually is.

MACHINEY PACKING BUDGET

VALUE

How much is your shipment worth?

It is not uncommon for machines to be sent overseas where the buyer isn’t paying for the machinery its self, its the cost of the machinery being exported that the buyer pays for.  So how much is that really worth?

I guess you need to ask yourself, what value does this gave to arrive in perfect condition?

 MACHINERY PACKING

PROTECTION

The only way to ensure your machinery arrives in perfect condition is to protect it. You will find most packaging companies can offer a budget and premium solution. Anything from cardboard and bubble wrap to premium rust preventative products used along with a custom made wooden box. What level of protection will you need?

 

As i mentioned in the beginning, your process will start and end with asking yourself what your BUDGET is. So think about what that is and what you’re expecting so that an experienced Machinery Export sales person can work with you on how to get your machine shipped to its destination.

3 PACKAGING SOLUTIONS FOR LONG TERM STORAGE.

December 04, 2014 Thursday. Tags: , ,

STORAGE

Whether you’re putting personal items into storage or shipping huge equipment and machinery you don’t want to risk any damage from occurring while you’ve got it packed away.

STORAGE

MOISTURE

Whether you’re contents are in a shipping container or in a Storage facility, your items will be exposed to excessive moisture in the air. The best way to avoid this is to use a product called SILICA GEL or DESICCANTS. This is something you would be familiar in finding when you buy a pair of shoes.

Desiccant Bag

Sold in a variety of much larger sizes this low cost simple solution will avoid;

  • Mold and mildew

  • Rust and corrosion

  • Large pockets of water building up.

 

 

VCI FILM

This is something you may never have heard of or seen. It basically looks like a roll of plastic film, as the properties within this film is not something you can see.

VCI Film Layers

The moment this film makes contact with your item it it starting to release a protective layer on it. If you want to ensure you’re items does not get rust and corrosion then this product will give you comfort and piece of mind.

 

 

WOODEN BOX

Keeping your items protected with additional packaging is something not worth second guessing. If you value what you’re packing away or are shipping off, then a Wooden Box is an essential solution for full protection.

This is not something that needs to cost a fortune. If you don’t want a custom made box, like a storage module, then ask your supplier if they have any second hand or stock boxes available. We’ve often got a number of sizes on hand, its well worth asking the question.

Wooden Boxes in Sydney

You don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to get these products from an Industrial Packaging company, our minimum order value is only $125. If that doesn’t scare you off, pick up the phone and speak to one of our expert sales reps about how we can help protect your items while they’re in storage.

WOODEN PALLETS – ARE THEY THE SAME?

November 19, 2014 Wednesday. Tags: ,

 

WOODEN PALLETS 

I was reading a short article thing morning about Wooden Pallets. Invented hand in hand with the forklift … makes sense…. whats fascinating about the wooden pallet is that it hasn’t had much of a change since entering the market. Most  things get invented over and over again, but there doesn’t seem to be much need for change with this concept.

So what changes have we seen?

 

wooden pallet history

4 WAY ENTRY

The introduction of a 4 way entry pallet in the 1950′s was an essential in finding a solution in getting a pallet to fit through standard door ways. This style is also known as a Euro Pallet. Using blocks and can be seen displaying products in retailers like IKEA.

MATERIAL OPTIONS

Whilst Wooden Pallets are still commonly found made There’s a number of materials that you can now have your pallets made from.

  • Plastic

  • Steel

  • Chipboard

  • Cardboard

Each of these material options have their purpose. Even CHEP have started to pool plastic pallets.

PALLET PROTECTOR

With environmental concerns and people considering the cost of dumping there’s been a demand for making the standard wooden pallet last longer. This patented design was launched in Australia in late 2014 by UBEECO Packaging Solutions and is hopeful to reach the pooling systems.

TRENDS

It’s quite possible that the biggest change to wooden pallets has been it’s integration from warehouse to house….!

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN WOODEN PALLET SUPPLIER

. Tags: ,

WOODEN PALLET SUPPLIER

Wooden Pallet Suppliers aren’t far and few between, so how do you know who to go with. What is going to put weight on your decision with who you’re going to give your business to?

 

PRICE

Its obviously the first thing people think about when they shop around, but is it the right thing? Wooden Pallets can be pretty cheap, in fact some can be FREE. So price can’t be everything or you’d go and salvage the free ones right? When you shop based on price you need to keep this commonly heard quote in mind; “You get what you pay for”.

 

CUSTOM MADE

Does the product you’re shipping deserve to be on a pallet base that’s it going to provide full support? There’s no point compromising on pallet size and design if it’s going to ruin your product in shipping. Always weigh up the options with a custom made pallet. Its surprising how the prices can compare.

- Here’s some examples of custom made pallets 

 

CONTINUITY

Having consistency in service and quality needs to count for something doesn’t it? Surely you don’t want a batch of quality Pallets this week and poor quality the week after. Make sure you investigate the stock they have, or what their premises looks like be sure they’re not making them in a backyard using unskilled laborers. Google earth can help you have a look at your potential supplier without leaving the office.

OPTIONS

With the number of Packaging Materials most companies require, use this time to consider consolidating your suppliers. If you need a Wooden Pallet Supplier, why not consider what else they have in their range to supply you. Do you need strapping? Stretch wrap or even Rust preventative products. Can your Wooden Pallet supplier offer competitive rates on everything you need?

WOODEN PALLET PROJECTS – OPTIONS TO CONSIDER

November 18, 2014 Tuesday. Tags: ,

WOODEN PALLET PROJECTS

 

Wooden Pallet Projects are everywhere!! There’s so many styles of pallets it’s a no wonder it inspires such creative designs. Wooden Pallets are being used as the material for anything from a House or a lamp shade.

It’s always impressive to see the creativity that DIY’ers have for Wooden Pallet Projects. I could never get bored at looking at what people make from a pallet. It’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. With Wooden Pallets being so easy to find, I guess these projects aren’t likely to fade away.

If you like the look, and not the idea of setting out to salvage your own Pallets then you can speak to an Industrial Packaging manufacturer like us about supplying them to you.

Wooden pallets can be custom made to any size and design, so if there’s something you’re imagining, and don’t have the workshop for it, let us make the Pallets for you.

GET YOUR OLD WOODEN BOX – CUSTOM MADE!

October 23, 2014 Thursday. Tags: , ,

OLD WOODEN BOX

 

Once you start the journey of looking for your old wooden box, there are immediate hurdles and obstacles that you have to weave through to get EXACTLY what you need… In fact, You probably won’t even get exactly what you want, you’ll end up compromising…

Well there’s NO NEED to COMPROMISE, you CAN get exactly what you want, CUSTOM MADE!

 

HOW???

 

Whilst a NEW wooden box sounds all fresh and clean, it doesn’t have to be the case… New CAN look RUSTIC with little effort or order quantity.

SUPPLIER

Choosing the right supplier will help in meeting the Old Wooden Box look you’re after. If you find an industrial manufacturer, they’re going to have case grade timber and manufacture in such a way that it naturally has a rustic look about it.

Be clear on the overall look you’re going for. If you like the idea of having knots in the wood or stains like sap, then let your supplier know that this will enhance the vision you’re after.

DESIGN

Search for an Old Wooden Box design that you like, and use it as a reference. Whether it needs to have handles, or gaps between each slat of timber, what size do you need? Take the time to have a look around so you can be specific about the style you’re after.

BRANDING

Its funny, back in the 70′s everything and anything was Branded, even for the smallest of customers. Nowadays, it’s such a hurdle for businesses to get over.

THE PERFECT ‘ OLD WOODEN BOX ‘

October 22, 2014 Wednesday. Tags: , , ,

OLD WOODEN BOX

 

Going for a Rustic Look? Whether you’re doing a window display or decorating the house you’ll be on the hunt for the perfect Old Wooden Box! It’s a rustic trend with styling that doesn’t seem to be fading away.

Here is an old Softdrink Crate we made some 30 odd years ago. I saw it a few years back when a company was hiring it out as a prop…

Vintage Wooden Box BERTS

 

The softdrink crate looks great, but the biggest problem with going for this look is trying to find the authentic props for the job that tick all your boxes.

 

Nally Bins

 

There are plenty of websites to look at in exploring what you can purchase; GUMTREE is a great start, or EBAY and Etsy is another source that’s being relied on for this type of thing.

Whilst getting an “authentic” rustic old wooden box isn’t too hard to get your hands on, you then find yourself scanning the sizes and styles…. What about if it has a label or stamp?… what colour is it?  Is it REALLY fitting for the look you’re after?

 

Here’s something to consider;

 

GET YOUR ‘OLD’ WOODEN BOX CUSTOM MADE!

 

Yes, that’s right, get it custom made!

 

Here’s just one example of a Custom Made Wooden Box that’s been converted for that Old Rustic Look.
