Wood Crates & Shipping Containers


Wooden Crates and Shipping Containers in Nashville

Some oversized or heavy items can’t be adequately protected by corrugated cardboard packaging. Our experienced shipping professionals will determine whether your belongings require sturdier wooden containers that will survive and maintain their integrity through the shipping stream. We are able to design and build crates, boxes, or containers to accommodate just about any shipping need.

With decades-long experience, we know how to choose the precise style of wooden crate based on the needs of the item being shipped.

When designing wooden crates and shipping containers, our engineers will take into account load weight, dimensions, value, and other characteristics to ensure your item’s packaging needs are met.

We understand that the custom wood crate we provide must be supported with the proper internal wood structures like load-bearing members, saddles, and supports to maximize effectiveness and provide the safest journey for your valuables.


Thinking Inside the Box

A vital component of your sound shipment is securing each item within the crate or box, or onto a skid or pallet. Some of our tried-and-true options include bolting, blocking, bracing, and steel strapping. When items are shipped in one of our custom wooden shipping containers, our Nashville custom packaging and shipping team selects the necessary securing methods and incorporates them into the design from the start, creating the perfect packing and containing solution for your valuables.
