    *******s just robbed me for a pallet with front axle and springs on it, they measured it to 1.4m and charged me £97.30, usually about 50 to 60 quid.. It's supposed to be a quarter pallet at 50 to 60 and we always got away with it but they changed the haulier for this area and I guess they have a measuring tape, though I have no idea what the dimensions are supposed to be anyway.

    Hi - std pallet is 1.2m X 1.0. Bit tight of them, especially if you're a regular customer, but 1.4m is overhanging & using up the next space on a truck (but only if it's actually filled to capacity)

    thanks for the figures, I know all about using other spaces, been in transport for 32 years, and ran 6 of my own when in my 20's, did UK and European for 10 years before giving up and moving onto tankers. It's just that they never bothered in the past, and the total height was only about 18 inches and not very heavy so easy to sit on top of another pallet that wasn't full height.
    This is why they did it in my opinion:
    My mate does this on my behalf, he's a regular customer, and Duncan Adams used to be the haulier for our area as he is also inside Grangemouth Docks, just like we are, so, we used to take the pallets round to his place on the van and save them collecting, and sometimes we would collect inbound pallets as well as my mate always asks for after 1pm as he does his internet stuff in the morning, then goes in and packs up what he has sold, so to make sure he doesn't miss the courier asks for after 1pm, but like I said would go and collect from Duncan Adams if needed.
    Now, our stuff is done by Dalkeith Transport who are 40 miles away, go figure!!!
    So, what happened this time; I bought an axle etc from F100Jay on here (I had previously sold him the truck) and we arranged collection on a Thursday to suit Jay. He came from a nightshift and sat in his unit all day waiting and the *******s never turned up. Jay phoned to see what was happening and I spoke to my mate. Well, just at that point a Dalkeith Transport driver turned up in my unit to COLLECT the pallet so it was obvious Jay wasn't getting a collection that day.
    So, matey spoke to them and they said they would collect it next day and they got told not to do that as Jay wasn't going to be in and the next possible day was 2 weeks ahead. They would not book it for 2 weeks ahead so matey was told to speak to them nearer the time.
    Guess what? Jay is in London next day and a ****ing courier turns up at his place and phones to say he is there......you couldn't make it up.
    Anyway it eventually does get collected on the nominated day a couple of weeks later but doesn't turn up at our yard. Matey phones and "it's on the way" That happened 3 times and then he got told it was HIS fault as he asks for post 1pm and they don't have a driver in our area at that time. It's taken them a month to tell him this or he would have revised his collections to suit them. So, on the Friday it comes out in a van on its own driven by the warehouse man. That took over 3 weeks from the originally planned collection day to delivery. It's about 400 miles, I could have taken a wheel barrow and walked down and up in that time.
