Buy vs. Rent
Why it is cheaper to buy than rent
We at Abbey Pallets agree with the pallet-hire companies in that we see pallet-pooling as an environmentally-friendly model.
However we do differ in one significant way!
At Abbey Pallets we believe if you have been using hire pallets you are able to run your own pallet pooling system without the exorbitant cost of approximately $4.00 per month per pallet ($8,000.00 for 2000 pallets).
Abbey Pallets can provide a pallet for your racking system for as little as $13.00 to $18.00 each plus GST, depending on your requirements (weight of load, etc.). Your pallets would have your name stencilled on them – not the name of the pallet provider – thus, enabling you to advertise your own company rather than someone else’s company.
Abbey Pallets can also help if you are despatching pallets, we can supply a non-returnable pallet for as little as $7.00 each plus GST. Ask our office and we’ll send a customer relations person to help establish what your requirements are. We have many options available to you.
How It Works
If you are a medium-sized company you probably have around 2000 pallets on hire – purchasing your own pallets would save your company approximately $60,000.00 in the first year and around $440,000.00 over 5 years.
Of course if you are a large company and have around 10,000 pallets on hire, your company would save about $300,000.00 the first year and around $2,200,000.00 over 5 years.
These savings are very significant and apply straight to the company’s bottom line – ALL PROFIT!
Also, owning your own pallets puts the value of the pallets on the balance sheet as a depreciable asset and takes the hire cost out of the expense account.
What a great way of assisting your company in these still harsh economic times!
Imagine if you could secure a customer who was going to generate a profit of between $440,000.00 to $2,200,000.00 over a 5 year period – you’d be breaking your neck to sign them up right now! You’d probably get a promotion as well! So take the initiative now!
So even if you don’t think you can get rid of all your hire pallets because of supply chain issues, etc., give us a call and we may be able to save you a tonne of money anyway.
Isn’t it time we stopped these pallet-hire companies sending undecipherable accounts, with companies wasting thousands of dollars’ worth of man-hours trying to decipher the accounts, trying to keep track of the hire pallets and putting up with heavy-handed pallet audits usually resulting in added charges.
Why don’t we take back control of our businesses and as a result retain, as profit, these large sums of money that are currently going to multi-national and even some foreign owned companies.
This is one case where you can Buy Australian and save money – so don’t waste any more time or money!
