Wooden Crates FAQ

Should I order by the inside dimensions or outside dimensions of the box I need?

Ordering using the inside dimensions is the industry standard for defining shipping crate dimensions. Shipping crates are built to transport a specific item or set of items, therefore box designs are based on having the right amount of space around that certain item. However, in cases where a box will be used for storage or will be transported in a fixed space (such as a shipping container or lorry) the outside dimensions can be specified to ensure that those restrictions are adhered to. It’s important to specify when you are using the outside dimensions in these cases when ordering your shipping crates.

How should I provide the dimensions for my wooden crates?

Please provide your dimensions in metric measurements in the following: Length (L) x Width (W) x Depth (D).

Do you stock any “standard” wooden crates?

All our wooden crates are built to order, so we rarely have spare items in stock. In some cases we may have surplus wooden cases leftover from previous projects, however, these might not suit your needs. It’s best to contact us online or give us a call to enquire further, as we may be able to help you in another way.

How much does a wooden crate cost?

The cost of wooden crates varies depending on the size, material and quantity that you order. Whilst it’s possible to find cheap used wooden crates for sale online, it’s not possible to guarantee the quality of these products, and they also will likely not be suitable for shipping internationally. Ordering custom wooden crates, made-to-order, guarantees a quality product that you can feel comfortable shipping your items in.

Can you make wooden crates in custom shapes?

We can make wooden crates to suit all sizes and shapes of items, including heavy-duty machinery, factory components and business tools. Whether you’re moving a production line overseas or just moving home, our shipping crates can be custom built to suit your specifications.

Are you wooden crates ISPM 15 compliant?

All of our wooden crates are heat-treated to ensure ISPM 15 compliancy in our on-site drying kiln. Having the ability to heat-treat our shipping boxes on-site allows us to prepare large custom wooden cases for shipping quickly, giving our clients the most efficient service possible.

We’re one of only a few UK based companies with this capability and are fully authorised by the National Plant Protection Organisation who assess us twice a year to ensure that our standards remain high. Any and all of our products can be made ISPM 15 compliant if necessary – you just need to ask.
