You can rest assured that your cargo will be protected throughout the whole journey. We use only the highest quality construction lumber and panels for our crates. Our standard industrial packing product consists of a substantial forklift-able platform with weight equal to the equipment or machine we are crating, as well as plywood or OSB panels with external frames measuring 1x4 or 2x4. Additionally, we supply fasteners, internal blocking, packaging, padding, anti-humidity barriers, and drying agents that are appropriate for the size, weight, and fragility of your items.
