Due to the size of the top bar hive, the safest way to transport is by pallet. The legs and fixing bolts have been removed and packaged inside the hive.
The follower boards, Top Bars and any other customer options are also inside the hive.
The roof ends and the hive corners are protected with 20 mm pipe insulation, the complete hive is then wrapped in shrink wrap film with added cardboard protection.
The hive is secured to the pallet with two ratchet straps which are yours to keep.
We use a local pallet shipping company to handle our large items, local is best!Andrew Vidler
