Okay heres the deal… I’ve been trying to get a hold of 10 pallets and cant even get one! I’ve tried home depot and vons and all that but none of them are saying yes! I wanted pallets for my talent show on friday the 13th and im getting frusturated. B & B though offered to let me borrow some for the show so thats not really a problem. Anyone have any suggestions where and how I can get them? (preferably free but whatever) I always see peoples videos and they have like a gagillion pallets…
You could always get a few cheapies and take em apart and put them back together in your own fashion, it wouldn’t be too difficult. I’m no carpenter but I know I’d be able to come up with something usable.
Steel pallets would be very heavy. Did you mean steal?
Any good size print shop has lots of wood pallets and skids (all the paper stock gets shipped in on pallets). The pallets are not returned for credit. Many other manufacturers also receive materials on non-returnable pallets. Most of the time, they accumulate the pallets and then pay for a special dumpster to dispose of them. Take a drive around the back of these print shops (by the loading docks). You may see piles of them. If so, ask inside if you can take a few. Most shops will say “yes” because you are doing them a favor by removing their refuse. They just wish that you would take more.
If anyone in Springfield, MA wants pallets/skids, send me a PM. I can line you up with as many as you need.
