Pallets are flat structures providing stable horizontal support for oversized objects that cannot be easily handled or moved by one individual. They are generally constructed from wood, metal or plastic and can be moved using secondary equipment such as a forklift, pallet jack, front loader, or some other lifting device. Objects supports on pallets are usually secured through the use of blocks and/or strapping.
