How Many Bricks Are in a Pallet?
The number of bricks on a pallet depends on the method of installation and the size of the pallet. However, if standard common bricks are used, there are generally about 534 bricks in a pallet. It’s important to note that the larger and heavier the bricks are, the less they will be in a pellet.

How to Load and Unload Palletized Bricks
Since palletized bricks can’t be loaded on a trailer through driving, we use forklifts, jacks, and other methods to ensure they’re loaded on a trailer safely. With the use of equipment, the loading and unloading process is fast, which saves time. If there’s space left in between pallets, they’re likely to move while in transit which will damage the bricks. To avoid that, we use lashings to make them rigid while in transit. Some of the methods used to load and unload palletized bricks are;
- Side-by-side loading
- Turned loading
- Pinwheeled loading
Fully Insured and Timely Palletized Bricks Transport Services
The cost of shipping palletized bricks depends on their number, size, and weight. The heavier the bricks, the more you will pay because they will require a more specialized trailer to move and bigger cranes to load and unload. We have a qualified rigger crew at the pick-up and drop-off locations which will ensure your palletized bricks are handled with care to avoid damage. Wide Load Shipping will fully insure your palletized bricks and make you a copy of our insurance bearing your name. You can use that copy to confirm if your palletized bricks are insured for transport and to claim compensation if not delivered safely. Palletized bricks are delicate; one wrong move could mean a big loss. Therefore, it’s goods to be safe than sorry.
