If you would like, I can assist with palletizing, pallets, and digital photos of pallets that we have out here.

Please let me know if I can help.

Thank you,

Make boxes around pallets; 16" high is fine. You can sort the slates on the roof if you want, but I would tend to just put them all in the boxes as they come off, stacked on EDGE!!! A 42 inch square pallet full is going to weigh about 3,000#
so don't try and double stack them.

If you sell them as a lot, they will all be pre-blended as far as size and color this way, though it will be hard to tell exactly how many of each size you have. I don't normally try and keep all of the cuts, and you are sure to have some broken ones to throw away. Good luck!

Have access to salvage 60 sq on a 6/12 single story 1970 ranch. Must be done this week. Demo starts next Saturday. Slates are black seems solid has a ring tone to it. and 9-10-11-12-14 widths x 18" - 3" head lap. Plan on starting at ridge and works down Need advice on what the best tools, how to efficiently remove slates and stack on the roof. I have a fork lift to reach up with pallets. what the best way to stack the slates on the pallets. Should i stack them by width? Thanks for whatever help i get.
