Where can I find free pallets?
Free pallets are in so many places, but you will likely have to do some asking.
The best sources of pallets are from companies that ship or warehouses. Pallets are durable but only good for shipping for so long, and after that, they are hard to get rid of trash.
In addition to shipping companies and warehouses, also check out junkyards and dumps to find pallets. Also, online sources like Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist are good places to find material as well.
