Dirt Floors [May. 22nd, 2006|11:28 am]
[emotional state |busybusy]

So I have basement storage in the new place, but it's a dirt-floor basement (there are some small plants growing out of the ground. seriously.) I want to put some big wooden pallets down to stack boxes on, but I have NO IDEA where to get some. Anyone know? Alternate suggestions are also appreciated.

My first guess would be a grocery store. No idea for sure, though. Good luck!

Try a wine store (not liquor store).

I need some, as well.

Think we know enough people to make buying a 440 count set worth it? (at that quantity, it is ~5$ a pallet, with free shipping. =) )

Hmm... what do you ship a load of pallets on? ;-)

If you contact a Borders, you might be able to get some. Every Borders I ever worked at we occaisonally had folks coming by to pick up pallets. It was usually a boon to us, as the schmucks at the trucking companies, who were *supposed* to pick them up usually "forgot" them until the pile was so big they couldn't pull their trucks into the space...

It used to be the case that the big supermarket in Porter (I forget the name) would put a stack of pallets on its back loading dock with a "Take me" sign. I don't know if they still do but it's probably worth a drive-by to see.

Wooden pallets will just suck up the moisture and rot. Home Depot has some plywood with plastic feet every few inches for putting down a subfloor over damp surfaces. It comes in 2x2 feet sections that link together.
