When you want to ship something large, you’re going to probably have to put it in a crate. Chances are, you’re not going to find a box large enough or sturdy enough to ship something the size of a motorcycle. You’re also going to want to find something that will protect the item you are shipping, so that it gets to its destination safely.
What Kinds of Items Can I Crate to Ship?
Almost anything that can be shipped can have a crate custom built for it. This can include motorcycles, statues, artwork, cars, machinery, or even live animals. If you need to have it shipped and it’s too large or sensitive for a regular box, you can have a crate designed to ship it in.
How Do You Find the Right Crate?
If your object is not a standard size or if it needs extra protection during shipping, you’re probably not going to just happen on a crate that fits exactly right. In many cases, you’re going to want to find a company that can build a crate to custom fit the item you are shipping. You can start by looking for places that sell crates, and they may be able to make one for you or recommend a company that can.
How Can the Crate be Moved?
Most crates are moved on Pallet Dallas. These pallets are created to be a sturdy surface for the crate to be placed on, and they can be lifted with the aid of a forklift. If you would like, some companies can build the Pallet Dallas into your crate so that it’s securely attached when your crate is being moved.
Can I Bring my Item to Have The Crate Built?
You’re going to need exact measurements to have the crate custom built for your item. The best way to do this is to bring the item to the crate manufacturer so that they can build the crate to its exact specifications. This ensures that the crate will fit, as will any security measures created to hold your item in place.
What if I Don’t Have a Way to Bring my Item There?
Some companies, such as CrateMaster.net are portable and will be able to come to you. In these cases, the crate can be built at your home or business so you don’t have to worry about bringing your item to their store front.
