FREIGHT COMPANIES - Shipping Inflatables

     Shipping inflatables can be an expensive venture.  It is worth getting prices from the manufacturer as well independent freight companies.  FYI: Correct Freight Class for Inflatables is 125.  If a shipper uses a different freight class and the unit gets damaged it will not be covered.
     To properly ship your inflatable you will need to obtain a pallet.  Many retail stores will place their pallets behind their store near the garbage dumpster (might want to ask a store employee before you take them).  Be sure to roll the inflatable unit tight and preferably short to prevent tipping.  Most units can be rolled into fourths instead of thirds to get a shorter and fatter roll. The vinyl roll should never hang over the side of the pallet.  Vinyl that hangs over the pallets can easily get ripped or torn by getting caught on fork lifts, or other pallets being moved around.  Next, I would recommend getting a type of shrink wrap or similar product.  Rolls of Wrap can be purchased at most office supply stores, located next to the shipping boxes.  Be sure to roll the wrap around the entire inflatable so that no vinyl has the chance of popping out of the roll and getting damaged or soiled.  Finally, get some rope and secure the vinyl roll to the pallet.  Be sure to protect your investment!
