As the name suggests, we send you a pallet, you load your
items onto it, we collect it and ship it overseas. Once it arrives
at the destination, we clear it through customs and deliver it
to you. You can use cardboard moving boxes, plastic crates
with lids, rubber made boxes, trunks, foot lockers and any
small furniture items if packed in bubble wrap and then
wrapped in cardboard. The pallet must be loaded on the curb,
driveway, parking lot or a loading dock so that we can collect
with a pallet truck and tail lift. We offer discounts for multiple
pallets being loaded and delivered at the same time.
The Pallet Service
We offer an all inclusive lump sum price for a 48x40 inch pallet
that is stacked up to 45 inches tall and a slightly higher price for
a 48x40 inch pallet stacked up to 72 inches high. This stops any
disputes of how many cubic feet you have as it’s a lump sum
price depending on the height of the pallet. Its an all inclusive
price for that volume range so as long as you keep within those
limits you know exactly up front how much its all going to cost
you. Using a tape measure and masking tape, map out on your
floor 40x48 inches and stack your items in that area and
measure the height. Its that simple!
2 sizes and 2 lump
UPakWeShip has receiving terminals in most major cities in the USA,
so if you can not load at your residence or we can not collect for some
reason, you can drop off at one of our terminals for the same price. It
also gives you more flexibility as you can drop off any day Monday to
Friday 8-30am to 5-30pm. Collections are normally done late morning
or some time in the afternoon but we can normally offer you a 2 hour
collection window for an additional $100. If you need collection from
an apartment building or inside your residence it might be best if you
hire a local man and van or mover to do this for you or ask us for a
quote for our UPakWeShip Plus service.
Drop off or Collection?
Pack any fragile items in lots of bubble wrap and place in sturdy
moving cartons or similar. You can buy specialty “dish pack”
cartons that are stronger for fragile items like glass and china.
Place crushed up paper, bedding or cushions at the bottom and
top of boxes to give them lots of padding and pack them full and
tight. Plates and glasses should be placed upright to keep their
strength. Tape up well using 2 inch tape. None breakables like
clothes can be in suitcases or trunks. You can buy specialty
boxes for pictures. A bike store should be able to give you a bike
box and musical instruments and golf clubs need to be in hard
How to Pack
When loading your pallet, make sure your boxes are within the
48x40 inch pallet. Nothing must stick out beyond that measurement
as it could be crushed by another pallet of items or be hit by a
trailer or shipping container door or wall. Once your items are all on
the pallet tape around all the items to keep them together and then
use shrink or surround wrap to go around your pallet. You can buy
shrink or surround wrap from most self storage or U Haul stores.
Don’t worry if you have trouble doing this as we will over wrap it
when it gets to our shipping terminal anyway. We will truck the
pallet to one of our shipping locations in New York, Charleston or
Los Angeles. Depending on the time of year and the seasonal
volume we normally have enough shipments to consolidate all the
shipments to that destination within a week or two.
We send you a pallet free of charge for you to load.
If you would like securing straps and a plastic cover
for your shipment we can send this out with your
pallet for an additional $100 on top of the door to
door pallet price.
Loading your own pallet is great if you have some
awkward or fragile items that you want to make sure
fits on the pallet in a specific way or an item that
doesn't fit in a box that you want to secure in the
middle with boxes surrounding it to keep it safe and
Load your own Pallet
We normally load 40 foot shipping containers with all the pallets,
and U Crates going to that destination. The container is trucked
to the port, cleared through security and customs and placed in
the export area of the birth that the ship is going to dock, ready
for loading. At the same time our office is filing paperwork
electronically with CBP, making manifests, bills of lading and
notifying overseas offices of the container departure and the eta
of the vessel. You can also get all the latest information on our
tracking page on the web site called U Track.
Depending on your destination the ship can take
between 2 weeks and 8 weeks to get there. Container
ships nowadays can carry about 15,000 TEU’s (Twenty
foot Equivalent Units) They can travel at about 20
mph and are often only in port for 24 hours offloading
and re loading containers. Look around you and
realize that almost everything you see will have
travelled in a shipping container.
Once the ship is docked, the containers are
offloaded. Depending on the destination the
containers will then either be entered to clear
customs at the port or in the instance of Europe
we take the container to our own customs bonded
terminal in Suffolk England to clear customs into
the European Union.
Customs always have a right to look through your
shipment the same way as they do when you are flying
somewhere. Containers are often X rayed at first to
see what’s inside. Every country has different rules
and regulations but generally you will need to
complete a customs form, declare you are moving
residency to that country and also that your items are
more than 6 months old. If you are moving a
secondary residence, shipping new items, shipping
items to a friend or relative, check with our office or
better still with customs before you decide to ship as
there could be duties and taxes!
Once the shipment has been cleared through
customs we will contact you to arrange delivery of
your pallet shipment to your delivery address. In
Europe we will deliver your shipment on the pallet
to your driveway / garage or curbside. Elsewhere if
tail lift trucks are not the norm or customs or
quarantine officials have already unloaded the
pallet, we might deliver the items to your ground
floor front door.
Although extremely rare, as you can see it can happen
and I’ll guarantee it per Murphy’s Law it will happen
to someone that didn’t take out insurance! For this
reason we ask that everyone insures there shipment
through us or provides proof of insurance coverage
elsewhere. Our Silver Insurance option covers these
types of catastrophes and also if a carton went
missing or some boxes got wet. The rate is 2% of the
value so if for example you insured all your items for
$5000 the premium would only be $100 so well worth
the coverage. Insurance will cover you against any
outside force damaging your items but not if you
didn’t pack it well so invest in plenty of bubble wrap !
If the boxes you are using don’t list the cubic feet on them,
measure in inches the Length x Width x Height, multiply
together and divide by 1728 and that will give you the cubic
feet of your carton. Now if you want to work out the volume
of the whole shipment, stack all your boxes together into a
big square or cube and again measure the longest, widest
and highest points of the stack, multiply them together and
divide by 1728 and that will be your volume.
If you are not sure if your things will fit on our pallet service,
use masking tape to mark the 48 x 40 inch pallet dimensions
on your floor and measure the height to see if everything
will fit in that area.
Math 101 (How to work out your cubic feet)
If you are going to use our
pallet option, your things will be
stacked on pallets 48 x 40
inches and the height will be
based on the highest point of
the pallet so try this at home by
stacking your things in an area
48”x40” using a tape measure
and masking tape. More……

For shipments through to door we guarantee our prices.
You will NOT be charged any extra charges at the destination unless it is backed up with an official receipt such as
customs duties on a new item or AQIS (quarantine fee in Australia or “Maf” in New Zealand).
No other shipping company offers you this guarantee.
Ask others that you have requested a quote from if there are any extras on top off their price and they will tell you that
you "might" have to pay for customs inspection or x ray or security fees at the destination. No one will tell you how
much it will cost you but this could easily be an extra $200 charged at the destination with no back up paperwork that
you have no option but to pay if you want your things.
UPakWeShip WILL NOT charge anything extra at the destination unless we have documented proof that an extra charge
did occur, and in the very rare event that something does occur, we will pass that cost on over to you at our cost with
documented proof that it occurred.
We are that confident that our all inclusive charges are ALL INCLUSIVE that if you think otherwise please call our
