Packaging imagery

From warehouse and janitorial equipment, you'll be hard pushed not to find what you need, whether it's gift bags for presents, workstations and ladders for your stacking space, air cushion machines for bubble packaging, or general office supplies.

Pallet products

Pallets

Whirlowdale logoYou can have pallets delivered to you across the UK or collect from one of the Whirlowdale depots. You can also sell on your old pallets to them. Pallet shippers are generally businesses or at least ship pallets fairly regularly, but Whirlowdale are happy to be approached for smaller orders if you are happy to accept reconditioned pallets or pay a delivery charge where necessary. They are the one-stop shop for all things pallet. Visit the Whirlowdale website to buy or browse.

 

Going Green

In line with the P4D Green Scheme, which gives you the option to carbon offset delivery of parcels and pallets, we are happy to recommend both Rajapack and Whirlowdale for their environmental policy.

The Rajapack Environmental Policy means they offer environmentally-friendly alternatives to standard packaging and Green advice for customers, but also use eco-friendly practice in their own offices and for production of their catalogue. Whirlowdale has a dedicated facility for reconditioning old pallets to create their 'New Start' pallets, made from recovered timber. They produce thousands of pallets every week in this way to replenish the pallet network, whilst at the same time helping with timber shortage.

 

Moving boxes

Depaul UK & The Depail Box Company

As part of our Round Up Your Pound charity scheme, we have supported the youth homelessness charity, Depaul UK and The Depaul Box Company. They sell packs of moving boxes for small, medium and large house moves, which all come with packing tape and marker pens. All of the proceeds from sales of these very affordable packs goes to the charity, so when you move, you help move a young person off the streets.

If you're moving house, we strongly recommended The Depaul Box Company - please also tell your friends!
