I found a short stack of pallets near CETMA headquarters. Then a Bruce Dern lookalike came over and took pictures of me strapping them down.
I'm going to begin testing methods to safely ship bikes on pallets instead of inside crates.
The crates are strong and look cool, but it's a lot of expensive work and possibly a pain in the ass for the recipient. The shipping company often puts my crates onto pallets anyway, then charges me for the extra weight. Thank you for listening to my story, k bye.
