CUSTOM SHIPPING CRATES FOR THE UPPER MIDWEST
CRATING & PACKAGING ANYTHING, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
Midwest Crating Unlimited designs and manufactures custom crates for products and equipment of all sizes. If a crate isn’t the solution, we also offer custom pallets and skids, which allow for easy transport of bulky and heavy items such as industrial machinery.
Midwest Crating Unlimited is a flexible, customer-service oriented crating company offering multiple ways for our clients to enlist our services:
Midwest Crating Unlimited has the knowledge and experience to handle the packing professionally and crating of just about any kind of equipment/machinery including specialty packaging jobs as follows:
- Medical instruments and machinery packaging
- Automation machinery packaging
- Dangerous Goods Packaging
- Government/Military packaging
- Ocean/Air packaging
- International packaging
- CPU/Server crating
At Midwest Crating Unlimited, we build wooden crates precisely to the measured specifications of your products, taking into account your desired degree of protection, customer crating requirements, and your budget. We use a variety of dunnage options to brace and block goods within the crate and provide protective foams and vapor barrier wraps to insulate, cushion and ward off moisture in transit. Delicate cargo such as medical instruments can be given extra protection using a shockmount base to absorb the bumps of travel.
Midwest Crating Unlimited builds any custom wood crate you can think of, including:
- Standard shipping crates
- Oversized aka industrial crates
- Trade show crates
- Slat aka skeleton crates
STANDARD SHIPPING CRATE
Our standard crates are easily made reusable, by adding screws to internal blocking, walls, and top.
TRADE SHOW CRATES
We design and craft beautiful custom trade show crates, sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of constant travel and handling by multiple freight companies, with ample interior reinforcements to hold your precious cargo snugly in place. Crates are well fabricated using high-quality, exterior-grade sanded plywood; these trade show crates can be customized with hinges, latches, interior protective foams/liners, and castors. Our trade show crates will even look good enough to be included in your display.
SLAT CRATE (AKA SKELETON CRATE)
Slat crates are a more bare-bones approach to custom crating, as the term “skeleton crate” suggests. Dimensional lumber is slatted around the four sides of a pallet base to partially enclose, and brace the cargo, forming an open- air crate, with a space between each board.
Our highly experienced team of crate designers at Midwest Crating Unlimited can solve any crating or packaging dilemma you may have, and we guarantee your shipments arrive at their destination safely, within a durable, protective, ISPM-15 compliant custom crate. Our quality and service are unlimited!
