    A pallet should be cheaper than a few skids or even individual units esp if they cube out the freight charges like most carriers will do.
    @the evil twin @Avo @FNQGU

    As I'm about 4hrs from Perth and don't get there very much, I've just ordered 8 off Ben. Mine should be a good test run for the cost of freight.

    On a different issue but along the same lines, I've lost a lot of sleep over how much to charge people and remain commercially viable.

    Ben and I had a PM exchange and he is happy if you confirm how many you want by PM to me, I'll order the total plus a few extra and we will split up the order here in Perth.

    At the moment I have;
    Clunk 3,
    Avo 3,
    me 8 (incl Patrol Club so far)
    @the evil twin @FNQGU

    Sorry ET, missed this post and ordered 8 via the website.

    If Ben wants to add me to this (your) list for my already paid for boxes, I'm happy to save him the extra in separate postage.

    If this is the go, my delivery address will have to be changed from Merredin to ????????

    Don't worry about it guys. Once it is in the system already, it might as well just stay there.

    Cheers

    Just for the interest of those discussing pallets, the manufacturer reckons max on a pallet is 40, but we can reduce numbers easily enough. I haven't physically stacked and packed one yet though so won't know for sure until we do.

    Sorry Ben. I didn't see the bulk order post before I ordered.

    All good Rossco,

    Driving 4hrs to split a pallet up is a big ask anyway. Order is in so it will head your way direct.

    Cheers and thanks for the support.
