The Incredible Hulk, a 10-foot-tall statue, made an appearance at Crate This in Holbrook this week. A custom crate was built to provide safe travel to his next destination. He was secured to a custom base using wood blocking and nylon strapping. While this was a different object to crate it only goes to show that here at Crate This we are always up to building custom crates that will exceed our clients’ expectations. Do you deal with artwork and or custom pieces? Let Crate This assist on its packaging. We have supplied the Boston Art industry with custom crating and packing solutions for several years.
Last month we were approached by one of our clients to engineer and manufacture a solid wooden structure, vapor barriered with rust inhibitor films. The project needed to be completely self-sustaining and be able to be transported on a flatbed to a remote destination. The project required Crate This to engineer, design, and build this structure to resist the elements, high winds and be able to be structurally sound. The base was required to be made of a galvanized metal for strength, anchoring as well as inclement weather purposes. The Crate This team designed the base platform with the help of our local metal fabrication vendor. The crate with hurricane strength reinforced walls, interlined and shrink-wrapped with VCI rust inhibitor films. The engineered design required two layers of this VCI film. One layer for the exterior, one layer on the interior. The contents of the structure were proprietary so we did not know what was being put inside, just that our engineered Project Crate was exactly what our client needed and they were very happy with the finished project. The exterior of the crate was finished on site as well.

This longtime customer of ours sold this used 50 HP compressor unit to a company in California. At 4500 LBS flush to the floor, now what? They called Crate This to protect it, make it two way forkable, and bring rest assured peace of mind to their longtime buyer.
