  2. Heh, it's holidays for the workmen in Holland, so I just walked up the
    terrain, spaced the pallets around a bit evenly (they won't be happy
    about it, but it's only 5 min work to get it back) and there I am,
    enjoying every bit of it. I'll get a vid of it later, and some pics,
    it's lovely.

    Sorry, by the time one reaches my age, the attention is directed more to
    the palate.;)

  5. Check behind big stores, like malls and such, and also hardware sores
    and stuff. If they have tons and tons out back, ask somone if they would
    spare a couple (twos better than none, you can get more anoher place)
    some stores will say no, some will push more at you. One place I went
    practiclly shoved them on us, they had MILLIONS stacked out back.

    THen you simply load them in a pickup truck and drive off were you want
    'em.

    anywhere that sells heavy things that would fit on one should have a
    bunch. sometimes they're free sometimes they say no. other times you
    have to go back at 4 am and load the truck really quickly. business
    supply stores like staples or office depot have tons because copiers and
    such come on them. also, the blue pallets are stronger, nicer, and a
    little taller.

    ASk first. Some pallets are worth money to companies as they have
    returnable deposits on them. Typicially in the UK you will be given
    unpainted pallets but BLUE ones are unlikely to be given away. Its not
    universal however to a small company it may not be worth their while to
    return Blue pallets so you MIGHT get given them , they are normally
    stronger and better built that the cheap unpainted wooden ones.

    Stealing pallets is never a good idea, you don't know what the companies
    plans are for those pallets, they maybe being stockpiled to be reused.
    I'd be furious if someone nicked the stack in the barn I work out off
    , we need them all this week and can't afford to go and buy them new so
    we hang onto any that get delivered with stuff on during the year.

    Paint stores always have them out back. Paint is always deliverd on
    palates, usually ones the retailer just chucks away. If you're dropping
    ONTO a palate, you'll likely bust through eventually unless you screw a
    thin piece of plywood over the slats.
