Where to find wood pallets for free
You can buy wood pallets from suppliers but if you want to keep costs down, consider sourcing them for free.
Note that most stores such as Walmart and Lowes ship their wood pallets back to the supplier so they will not give them to you for free.
Some places to try include:
- Craiglist and Kijiji (free market places)
- Facebook buy and sell groups
- Construction sites.
- Small businesses.
