Which type of wooden crate is best for me?

We have shipped everything from medical equipment to artwork to some of the largest industrial parts in the manufacturing world. Here are some of the types of custom crates we make to provide the appropriate shipping solution just for you.
Heavy Duty Crates
These are among the most sought-after wooden crates for many industries. They are perfect for any type of industrial parts or machines, ranging from small and light to enormous and heavyweight. In addition, we create standard measurements of 24 x 24 x 28 inches, 36 x 34.5 x 36 inches, 48 x 48 x 48 inches, and even extra-large ones at 96 x 48 x 48 inches.
However, size is no obstacle when it comes to custom making wooden crates. Some of our largest heavy-duty crates have been as big as 12 feet wide by 40 feet long by 140 feet tall! And the biggest items we can crate include turbine and industrial parts weighing as much as 40,000 pounds! There is nothing too sizeable for us, we’re willing to consider it all.
This is a great option for manufacturers looking to save on shipping cost, as a knockdown crate allows our client to receive more crates at a time by saving space on our delivery truck.
Also for clients who like to maintain an inventory of crates, but don’t have the space to store them, knockdown crates minimize the storage need footprint. A knockdown crate is one that has the prebuilt walls and top stacked on the pallet base. You simply place your item(s) on the pallet base and assemble the prebuilt walls and lid.
Heat Treated & Export Shipping Crates
The heat treated wooden crates are indispensable for shipping products internationally. A wooden crate needs an ISPM 15 stamp from a certified pallet or crate manufacturer to be allowed egress from the United States and ingress into any other country.
When our clients want well built, reusable crates to ship their exhibits around the country to trade-shows, we are the best game in town.
