Professional Crating & Packaging Services in Boston, MA

On-Site Packaging Solutions In Boston

Based in Holbrook Massachusetts, Crate This usually crates and packages goods at our warehouse. However, sometimes due to shipping schedules or specific aspects of some cargo we need to utilize our on-site crating services. In these cases, our team will bring our packaging materials to your location in the Greater Boston area. We are happy to provide on-site crating and packaging anywhere in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, and the surrounding towns.

Custom Packaging Services in Boston

The Crate This team provides a variety of solutions for packaging goods for our commercial and industrial clients. To start, our team uses exclusively NELMA (Northeast Lumber Manufacturing Association) lumber for our crating. This wood is highly durable and approved for international transport. From there we tailor our crating based on what is being shipped, where it is being shipped, and how it is being shipped. For instance, we can provide rust protection, vapor barrier protection, foam padding, and more for fragile goods that are being shipped via ocean or air freight. No matter what, we will ensure that your goods are protected through every stage of the shipping process.

Out of Gauge (OOG) Crating for Boston Businesses

Our team specializes in providing crating for large out of gauge shipments. Whether you plan to ship using a breakbulk method or you have overweight machinery, we can help create packaging solutions that will not only contain your shipment but also protect it. Our team often designs and builds these special crates made with unique custom dimensions. In a recent project we provided crating for a plant relocation job that required several OOG crates.

Plant Relocation for Boston Industrial Locations

At some point, businesses need to relocate. This can be a logistical nightmare for industrial locations with dozens of unique machines that need to be sent across the country. Life sciences, advanced technology, manufacturers, and medical facilities all need packaging solutions to ensure that their equipment is protected from origin to destination. That is where Crate This comes in. If you are looking to relocate your plant somewhere else in the country or even internationally, we can help create the crates necessary to protect your goods.

What We Package:


On-Site packing services are a by-appointment service. Simply give us a call or use our contact page to get in touch with a member of our team. From there we can handle scheduling and pick a time to handle your shipping project.

A custom shipping crate has too many factors to give a general ballpark estimate on. Instead we recommend calling or messaging our team to get a custom quote. The size of the crate, necessary materials, and other factors will all determine the overall pricing for your crate. 

Yes, in fact we have created crates in the past that were specifically designed for multiple uses as well as one project where crates were converted into shelving units for the client. At Crate This we can always help you get crates that meet your exact needs.

Aside from providing packing services we also provide storage options for clients that need commercial storage. Additionally we provide specialty crating including trade show and exhibition crating.
