The term palletized refers to how items are stored in a professional HHG warehouse. Unlike a mini-storage where items are stacked loose into a large garage-like area, professional warehouse like Arpin of RI uses plywood vaults to store their customer’s goods. Each numbered vault is approximately 7’ tall by 7’ deep by 5’ wide. The vault has a pallet bottom and it is designed to be moved around and stacked with a forklift; hence the name palletized. Each plywood vault has a removeable door to access the interior and has a capacity of 1,000 to 1,500 lbs. All of the items loaded inside the vault are wrapped in protective pads or plastic. In Arpin of RI’s cavernous warehouse, the vaults are stored three high, in deep stacks, in long, long rows; think of the last scene in Indiana Jones and “top men”. Once items are loaded into the vault, they are effectively sealed from outside air flow, contaminates, and an any unauthorized access. Arpin of RI also has specialized trucks which can deliver full vaults directly to your new home eliminating several handlings of the items.
