Using less lumber than fully enclosed boxes, crates make a reliable, more economical option in some situations. They’re typically used when combining wood with other packaging materials such as foam, which act as a shock absorber during shipping. Commercial ovens and fryers are a couple examples of products that are shipped using crates—there is still plenty of protection without being completely sealed.
What Lumber Goes Into Our Crates?
No matter what you’re shipping or where you’re shipping to, the packaging has to do its job: hold up to protect the goods.
We believe in solid partnerships. Solid business practices. Solid workmanship. And being solid starts with a commitment to use only the best Grade 3 or better lumber in the market. We maintain that great quality by keeping all finished products completely free of surface moisture in our unique dry storage facility.

Using our SolidWorks software, we’ll work with you to design a custom crate that is strong enough to hold your goods, but not over-engineered, so that you know you’re getting a product that will serve your needs at the best possible price.
