• So how big is a bulk bag?

    Well the actual answer to this is it varies… Depending on the product and the weight of the product in the bulk bag most will sit around 80cm to 90cm high and around 75cm to 85cm in width. Additionally they are often standing on a pallet which is normally around 1m2 with the pallet itself being around 9cm high.

    Now this can be hard to picture when you are trying to imagine it sitting outside your house. To assist with this we have taken a couple of pictures of two people who are different heights so you can see the size equivalence.

    Image one is of a person who is 5ft 9 or 179cm, the second image is of someone who is 5ft 4 or 164cm.

    The majority of bulk bags will hold between 700 – 900kg (that’s nearly a tonne by the way) so are actually quite big and heavy. If they do weigh this amount then the sizes mentioned in the first paragraph should apply.

    Often we find our customers aren’t aware of actually how big a bulk bag is and are surprised by how much space it takes up. Hopefully providing a visual image of the bulk bag next to a person helps put it into perspective!
