Have you ever received pallets that aren’t covered with a tarp? If so, you know how dusty and dirty they can get during transport. Not only does this affect the appearance of your merchandise, but you may end up receiving damaged goods if there are any holes in the pallet or the shipping container box itself! Don’t let this happen to you – invest in tarp covers for all of your pallets! Here’s why it’s important to cover pallets with a tarp.
Protect Your Investment
Not all pallet cover tarps are created equal. Some have weak seams and corners that will rip or tear if they are not handled properly. Others are made with too much material that would cause the tarp to rest on the ground, which could create an unsafe work environment for employees. And some tarps don’t have reinforced grommets, which can lead to frayed edges when used over time.
At UNISIGN we understand how important it is to find the right tarp for your needs. That’s why we offer three different types of pallet cover tarps: Poly Tarps, Low Density Tarps and Heavy Duty Tarps.
Reduce the Risk of Rain Damage
In addition to the increased risk of theft, pallets left uncovered in inclement weather are at risk for potential rain damage. When water soaks into the wood, it can cause dry rot, which can lead to mold and other health hazards. The best way to protect your goods is by covering them with a UNISIGN pallet cover tarp. These tarps come in a variety of sizes to suit any need and provide protection against rain, snow, dirt, dust and more.
Protect from UV Exposure
Covering your pallets helps protect them from the UV rays that can damage the material, making them less likely to break and cause injuries. This will also help you avoid issues related to inventory management and spoilage. Let’s face it, most of us don’t like dealing with damaged or broken pallets. To make things easier, there are UNISIGN tarps available that cover all sides at once, so there is no need for tape or staples. The tarps are designed in such a way that they provide plenty of protection without being too heavy on your budget.
Make Hiring Delivery Trucks Easier
A company’s fleet of delivery trucks are expensive assets that need to be taken care of. They should be maintained and serviced regularly, and when they’re not in use, it’s important to protect them from the elements by covering them with tarps.
Companies also want their drivers to feel appreciated, so many offer bonuses for drivers who keep their trucks clean and covered. Some companies even match the driver’s personal contributions to charities! How cool is that? There are plenty of ways to show your gratitude for your employees – and tarping your pallet covers can be one way you do it.
Trucks can also get scratched up or dirty when they’re out driving around town all day, every day. Hiring these specialized service providers will help ensure a smooth operation while keeping your vehicles as pristine as possible.
Keep Away Pests and Animals
Pests and animals are drawn to pallets. They can get into the wood and chew it, which will weaken the structural integrity of your pallet. And once they’re in, they’ll leave behind droppings and urine that can spoil your goods.
Covering the top of your pallet is simple and inexpensive way to protect it from both pests and animals. The tarp acts as a barrier while also keeping water off of the wood, which can cause rot. There’s an added bonus: if you happen to have any scraps of lumber laying around, you can use them to build yourself a frame for the tarp.
