Construction Materials:

Our wood crates for sale are made in a variety of ways and depending on your application, you need to consider how the materials that were used to construct the crate to make ensure it meets your performance requirements.

  1. Plywood construction – Plywood is strong and sturdy, that makes the crate extremely impact resistance but also heavy.
  2. Wood slats – A much lighter wood crate, but often aren’t as well sealed as plywood box and have less impact resistance than plywood. 

Suggest Applications:

Import/export – Wood crates, in particular, used wood crates, serve as an affordable shipping solution that will protect your product during international freights. We typically see weight capacity of 4,000 – 6,000 lbs. in most wooden shipping crates. However, there are wood crates with a higher carrying capacity available.

Many of these wooden shipping crates have already come from overseas and have usually been through at least one series of heat treatment and fumigation. Further export will require additional treatment, so be sure to check with the proper government bodies to determine if your shipment needs further treatment.

Long-term part storage – Along with import and export applications, wood crates are also often used to store materials for future orders. The crates are strong enough to keep the contents safe and unharmed while not in use. Wood crates prove to be an affordable solution for storing legacy parts or items that will go in storage for a long period of time and don’t necessarily need to access every day.
