By Industry

New and Used Machinery Transport

A shipping crate is a great way to ensure your expensive and sensitive equipment makes it to its new location, damage and scratch free, cheap insurance when most carriers don’t hold themselves liable for damage.

Manufactured Parts and Bulk Goods Transport

Sometimes pallets just aren’t the answer, custom shipping crates allow you to stack smaller items higher vertically without the risk of stock losses and pallets collapsing whilst in transit.

Office or Residence Relocations

If you are moving a larger amount of items interstate, or need to store for a period of time, this could be your answer. A shipping crate can be manufactured up to double pallet size and beyond to allow you to ship/store multiple large items in a consolidated fashion.

Items Destined for Overseas Travel

With ISPM15 rated materials used, our shipping crates are a great way to ship internationally with a massively reduced risk of customs and quarantine issues and delays. Shipping crates also allow you to ship LCL and consolidated container consignments with confidence.

Art and Exhibition Transport

If you have artwork, exhibition or museum pieces that need to be regularly shipped, shipping crates are a great option, some options include single or multiple framed wall art cases, roll in cases with ramps for larger items, or custom cut foam for any item.
