How to pack and ship construction equipment for transport

Depending on the type of building, flooring and construction equipment you need to transport to a worksite, follow our guidelines on how to prepare different building materials and ensure safe transport:

Construction and flooring materials including cement, bricks and tiles
  1. Place bags of cement, bricks or tiles onto a pallet and stack them evenly. Take care not to exceed the dimensions of the pallet or stack it too high.
  2. Consider using polybags and canvas to secure loose bricks and bags together.
  3. Place heavier items towards the bottom, smaller, lighter items towards the top.
  4. Secure construction materials to the pallet with wrap and ties.
Construction tools
  1. Protect your tools by wrapping any sharp edges with bubble wrap.
  2. Consider using a heavy-duty toolbox for additional protection, or place it into a strong corrugated cardboard box.
  3. Fill any additional space with cushioning materials so your tools cannot move.
  4. Seal with tape and label if required.
