Re: Free pallets

Hi @mcrfan888,

When I called Tarneit brach couple weeks ago, they said I can collect free pallets after lockdown is eased or anytime if I have Trader Permit to visit Bunnings. They said I can use their courtesy trailer if needed.

Re: Where can I find free pallets?

Hi! 

 

I am wondering what are the sizes of the pallets? I have a small car so limited to about 900mm wide and 1.2m deep.

 

It would be good to know if there are pallets available in maribyrnong, west footscray or Sunshine.

Re: Free timber pallets

Hello @ryanardo24

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining us and sharing your query about free timber pallets.

 

Our stores offer free pallets whenever they become available. I suggest calling your local store and speaking to a team member in the Timberyard as they can easily spot the pallets and tell you if any are available. If you are making garden beds please make sure to grab only the pallets that are marked as "heat-treated" these pallets will be safe to use in your garden. Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing your garden bed.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

Re: Free pallets

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @mcrfan888. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about where to find pallets.

 

It sounds like there might have been a miscommunication. We do not give away our coloured and branded pallets, as the supplier owns these. However, we do encourage customers to collect our free pine pallets. These become available when we receive them with deliveries. I suggest you speak to a team member in the timber yard, as they will be very familiar with the disposable pallets. You might need to wait until restrictions ease before being able to access the pallets at our stores.

 

Alternatively, you could try building sites or your local supermarket.

 

Please let me know if you have further difficulties, and I'd be happy to call the store on your behalf.

Re: Where can I find free pallets?

Hi @zool3,

 

Pallets come in all shapes and sizes. There are generally some half-sized pallets that should fit perfectly in your car. I often take a handsaw along with me so I can cut them to size to fit my small car. Maribyrnong currently has some pallets which you could collect. If you were looking for more of a selection, it's best to call the stores weekly as there will be many more after their stock deliveries.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: What height, length and width are the paletts

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Steven2. It's great to have you join us, and many thanks for your question on pallet sizes.

 

As these are our free pallets, there's no one size for them, as all our suppliers use different sources for them. An average full-sized pallet is around 1.2m x 1.2m, but you'll also find 1.2m x 0.8m and even smaller. They are generally around 150mm high. Your best bet is to call or visit your local store to see what might be available.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Are pallets available for collection

Hi, I was just wondering if pallets were free to collect from any local bunnings in southeast melbourne. looking to use them outdoors for a craft, not in need of them now but later in the year. Are they available any time of the year, and are they free, if not how much are they? Thank you in advance.

Re: Are pallets available for collection

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @mia22. Thank you for sharing your query about the availability of pallets for collection.

 

The pallets are free to collect at the store when they are available. Yes, you may pick them up any time of the year. I recommend calling your local store and speaking to a timber yard team member to make sure that there are some available for you to pick up. Because of their popularity with the D.I.Y. community, the free pallets are often picked up as soon as they are available. If you need assistance in having some put aside, please let us know. 

 

When the time comes to build your project, please don't hesitate to post it. Our members are keen to see your creation.
