Points to Remember When Looking for a Custom Crates Manufacturer

20-02-2017   Post by | Admin

Just as the name implies, custom crates are designed and manufactured based on a customer’s needs. While some industries and applications can get by using simple crates, others require crates that are made based on very strict specifications. In either scenario, it is important to choose a reputable company. Especially when needing a custom crate, you need to know what to look for in a manufacturer to ensure that the finished product meets, if not exceeds your expectations.

  • Experience – The level of experience that a manufacturer provides is extremely important. Obviously, you want to work with a company that delivers on the promises they make and backs the product with a solid guarantee.
  • Expertise – The company you hire must have expertise in making the type and size of custom crate that you need. 

  • Crate Material – Both custom and simple crates are available in multiple materials. Regardless if you are in the market for wooden crates, plastic crates, or some of other material. be sure to identify companies that employ experts who are qualified in the manufacturing of crates made of those specific materials.

  • Strength and Durability for Shipping – For shipping purposes, it is imperative to find a manufacturer capable of making a strong and durable product. For example, custom wood shipping crates must be manufactured in a way that ensures the shipped product arrives at its destination safely and undamaged. A few perfect examples for this include stabilization blocks, floating floors, and die-cut foam inserts.
  • Types of Crates – In reality, many different types of crates are made based on the industry and/or application. Therefore, when looking for a manufacturer who can customize your order, make sure they can produce the exact type of crate needed. For example, instead of standard-sized shipping crates, you want to find a company that can accommodate your need for an export crate, large machinery crate, glass crate, and others, all manufactured according to your needs and specifications.

  • Special Design Elements – By working with a reputable and trusted source, you have the opportunity to choose from a host of special design elements. These include skid-mates, drop-down doors, hinged lids, labeling/stenciling, and more.
