How To Protect/Ship Your Trade Show Booth & Other Supplies

Frequently Asked Questions: Trade Show Crates

The smartest way to pack tradeshow booth parts is in a custom crate that is designed for multiple uses. With Crate This we make crating with custom padding and foam inserts that protect your goods from location to location. Custom dimensions and padding prevent your booth elements from getting damaged in transit, while the crate itself is also designed for multiple trips thanks to it’s durable wood.

If you are taking your tradeshow to an international location, you should consider custom crating that is approved for international shipping. International freight has to be packaged with materials that meet international regulations including ISPM-15 certified wood and lumber. Additionally, you want to make sure you have extra protection depending on what is being shipped and where it is being shipped. For example, you want to make sure electronics have water proofing and vapor barrier protection if they are shipped by ocean freight methods.

We recommend taking pictures of fully packed tradeshow crates and including detailed instructions of where every item goes, this is the best way to protect your items. If you have a custom crate built but pack it incorrectly, you will waste the benefits of the custom designed elements of your crate and put your goods at a higher risk for damage.
