Shipping furniture, art or other expensive items is worth doing right the first time. You often hear horror stories about how some of the furniture got damaged during the movie or the art transportation that didn’t go so well. Sometimes it’s because of the tiny bumps in the road and other times, it’s because the boxes weren’t placed carefully.
So, why should you choose custom crates for shipping?
Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of using custom wooden crates:
1. No Worries About Size
Big shipping items such as a pool table, piano, Jacuzzi tubs, and art sculptures cannot be shipped on their own. When it comes to art transportation, you need to be very careful. Even a small nick in the sculpture can cause a loss of thousands of dollars. With custom crates, you have the benefit of getting the exact shape and size for your big items. Moreover, custom crates create very little mess as they do not require excessive padding. The pallet holds the base tightly and the surrounding wooden sides and the lid keep the items secure.
2. Safe and Secure
Custom wooden crates are quite strong, and they offer great protection. Since the sides are screwed or bolted, you can get them removed once the crate arrives. That way, you can easily slide the item right out instead of lifting it.
3. Reuse of Material
Custom wooden crates are a bit more expensive than tradition shipping packages. It makes sense to recycle this crate and use it for some other purpose. You can save it for your next house move or get it reassembled to create a shelf. If you are into DIY, then you will get plenty of ideas on YouTube on how to reuse this crate. A few ideas include bookshelves or decorative wall shelves.
Whether you are going for art transportation or shipping a big furniture item, wooden crates give you the peace of mind that your package will be delivered safe and sound. Learn about how we make our own custom shipping crates here!
