Trade Show Crates

Our custom tradeshow crates are as sturdy as they are beautiful. We start with exterior grade high quality sanded plywood, with overlapping edges glued and stapled from both directions to ensure everything remains rigid and attached. We then place gussets at each corner and anywhere that the framing meets. They are built knowing they will be traveling from event to event and hold up to the vigorous handling of freight companies.

We can make show crates in any size and with a variety of hardware for hinging the doors to open to your specifications. We can build them with casters so you can move them around the showroom floor. Many of our customers employ our crates in their tradeshow displays, saving money on storage and time waiting for the busy forklift operators to bring your empty crates back at the end of the show.

Having been in the industry for over 50 years, we know what our customers expect from a crating company. Our team of experts are here to offer you the best solution for your needs.

RESEARCHING WHAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU: If you are unsure of the crate you need, we are happy to go the extra mile and help determine what might be the best option for your budget and needs. Even when bidding freight or shipping services, we like to shop around to make sure you are getting the best value.

When challenged with something new which we haven’t seen or worked with before, we will research the best way to secure and ship your item. Making sure its done right the first time.

We design in 3D to find issues before we build, another level of “measure twice, cut once”

CUSTOMER NEEDS: We are here to help answer any questions you might have. We understand that a lot of orders have special details and circumstances that a one size fits all box just doesn’t work for, in these cases we ask that you please reach out to discuss your specific needs. Our office staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We are here to help you.

OUR SOLUTION: We want to be a one-stop shop for our customers and make shipping and packing as simple as possible. Excellent service should never break the bank, and we want to make sure we take care of all of our customers.

"Excellent service! I highly recommend calling them for any of your crating needs…whatever you need to ship and however you need to send it, they know exactly what to do to get your items ship ready.

We were on a VERY tight schedule to ship something out internationally. The items needed to be crated first to fit specs necessary for large air freight shipments. I contacted Custom Crating, and although they were short on staff at the time..they accommodated us and got the crating job done even faster than we expected…this helped us achieve the impossible, as we actually got the items shipped out to meet the extremely tight deadline! This could not have been done without their stellar service and professional knowledge of both crating and logistics. The staff was also very friendly and they responded to any phone or e-mail questions I had in a timely manner. (Erik and Nicole are extra awesome)

We will most definitely use Custom Crating for any crating needs we may have in the future."
