Skids & Pallets

Standard and Heavy Duty Pallets

We can make these in any size. A standard pallet has 2x4 runners with 1x4 slats evenly spaced along the top and few on the bottom for stability. Many items can be palletized for shipping at a fraction of the cost of crating, saving you money on packaging and shipping. Large quantity pallet orders lower cost considerably. Many companies use us exclusively for the high quality of our handmade pallets. See overseas certification for information on pallets leaving US borders.


A skid is a much heavier type of pallet, and consists of 4x4 runners or feet planked with 2x. Skids are used when heavy or industrial items may not need crating, but need a stable base for loading and transportation. See overseas certification for information on skids leaving US borders. Please see our product gallery above for samples of both.

"Dealing with these crating companies is 75% of my of my job. Custom Crating is top notch and will get all of our Seattle WA business from now on guaranteed.They are prompt with requests for quotes, providing invoices and receipts. I did not have to chase them down or hound them about anything very professional. I wish more crating companies worked like them."
