Custom Box & Crating, Standard Boxes, Custom Cardboard Boxes, Shipping Crates
There are times when there is no standard box size for your item. Let’s assume, for example, you have a framed painting with dimensions of 72” x 2” x 36”. There is no standard box to properly pack and ship this painting.
Not to worry. Unlike most other pack and ship stores, The Shipping Place has highly skilled professionals who can take flat cardboard and make a sturdy box that’s just the right size.
There are times, however, when a cardboard box is simply not a good solution. Very valuable paintings, for example, call for wooden crates to ensure adequate protection. Similarly, if the item you are shipping contains plate glass or is made of stone, it must be shipped in a crate; otherwise it will arrive at its destination broken.
Many people think that a stone table top is not fragile, but this is incorrect. Stone slabs are highly prone to breakage and must be protected through careful packing and crating.
The Shipping Place is one of the few pack and ship stores willing and able to build a custom crate for any job. We have built crates for shipping fine art, glass and stone table tops, antique chairs, 1950s soda fountains, American Indian pottery from the 1800s, motorcycles, and many other items. Take a look at some of the things we’ve shipped.
Big or small, we pack and ship it all!
