|When do I need a wooden box versus a crate?
The answer depends on your product and your shipping requirements. If your product is fragile, contains many pieces, or is of high value, then you will probably need a closed-sided box. But if you have a piece of machinery with a solid frame, then an open-sided crate should be able to handle the job. Additionally, overseas shipment or the need for vapor protection affects the choice of a box or crate. As you can imagine, there are a number of factors you will need to consider. Or simply call us, and we'll walk you through it to find the best choice; it's what we do.
