Shipping heavy items by pallet. Leave out checkout delivery.

HI

 

I am currently building a store for a client where some of the products can be shipped via normal parcel delivery or local collection; others are heavy and bulky and require delivery via pallet. For pallet delivery items, we need to leave out the checkout delivery and replace it with a note that shipping will be arranged offline - the reason is that (1) there is a relationship-building opportunity (2) shipping rates vary depending on location and which company can fulfil soonest. 

 

The further complication is some buyers may buy some items which are deliverable normally and some that are pallet delivery.

Are there any apps or shipping providers that can provide this functionality. Alternatively, is there a way we can split out bulky items from the shipping calculations for smaller items?

 

Thanks
