Re: How do you find free pallets?

Hello @jgsaau


I'm sorry to hear that you did not get your pallets. I've contacted the stores in the immediate area around Gawler and they have confirmed that they are leaving their pallets outside the store for the public to pick up. I've spoken to the stores and made them aware of your need for pallets.

  • Bunnings Kent Town - Josh - 08 8132 9300
  • Bunnings Marion - Simon - 08 8375 7600


Depending on which store you go to, I've contacted the coordinators to give you a hand with the pallets. Please note that the pallets are still on a first come first serve basis. Some stores run out of pallets really quick as they have a lot of D.I.Y.  enthusiasts in the area. It's best to contact the stores first and speak to the coordinators to make sure they have some to give away.


If you need further assistance, please let us know.

Hardwood pallets

Hi guys, Does anyone know where i can get some long hardwood pallets from. The Nunawading store used to put them out for collection but they don't seem too any more. Is there any other store nearby that has them?

Re: Hardwood pallets

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @anthonyL. It's fabulous to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your question about finding hardwood pallets.


Typically, most of our stock arrives on Pine softwood pallets, and these are what we put aside for customers to collect. Hardwood is generally reserved for pallets that circulate between stores and suppliers, and they're denoted by their red and blue colouring. We do not own these red and blue hardwood pallets, so we can't give them away.


Occasionally we'll receive stock on a hardwood pallet that an exterior company doesn't own. These get put out for customers, but there's no guarantee that any of our stores will have them at any time. Over the last few years, I've noticed that the hardwood pallets are becoming scarcer. 


You might like to stop into Bunnings Boxhill, Ringwood, Doncaster and Bayswater to see what they have available. If you chat with the team in those stores, you might find that they'd be able to keep ahold of any hardwood pallets and give you a call to collect.


Please let me know if you have further questions.
