What are Crates?

What are Crates?

A timber crate is very useful for transporting and exporting. They come in three types:

    • Fully enclosed,
    • Like a box, gabled, which means there are gaps between the boards like a picket fence
    • Flat pack

Getting the right crate for what you’re moving is important, because you need to choose the type most appropriate for what’s to go in it. You also want to ensure your goods fit properly and aren’t bowing the wood at the bottom from too much weight.

Palletmasters not only specialise in wooden pallets, but crates as well. Crates can be custom made to your precise measurements either for domestic transportation or exporting. You give us the measurements for the inside of your crate, and tell us about how much you need it to hold, and we do the rest for you.

Our products will be to a quality standard either for domestic or export use. Crates being used for export will be ISPM15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures) number 15 certified. That means all crates made from wood over 6mm thick will be treated to prevent spreading of disease.

At Palletmasters we’re experienced crate makers, so we guarantee excellent quality, cost effective products for our customers first time, every time.
