Jagas Technical Information

Paver storage

  • Paving is most vulnerable to damage prior to laying.
  • Do not expose palletised pavers to continuous extremes of weather.
  • If pavers are stored outside, ensure the pavers are covered to avoid excessive hot or damp conditions.
  • Keep palletised pavers out of sunlight for extreme lengths of time and keep covered until laid.

Paver transport & packaging

Our pallets carry a charge of $46 including GST and normally carry 48 pavers. This pallet charge is refundable if you wish to return them to us, provided they are in the same condition as when they left our yard. Pallet returns are the responsibility of the purchaser.

We use environmentally friendly spacers between each paver to ensure safety of each unit in transportation and handling. If you wish to return the packaging to us, you are most welcome, provided they are bundled together. The packaging will be reused to avoid wastage and to keep our environment tidier.

Unless requested otherwise, we freight all our paving by hiab truck. Freight charges can vary depending on quantity and size of your order, but generally cost $69 including GST per pallet in the Auckland area.
