4 Tips – Ordering A Wooden Box

We understand that it’s not always easy to source the Industrial Wooden Boxes you need so here’s a few tips to get you on your way.

ordering wooden boxes

1 – Understand the styles available

Wooden or Timber boxes are commonly referred in the industry and Cases & Crates. A case is fully enclosed with no gaps and a crate has gaps. You’re not limited to one or the other, you can have a combination of both. It really just depends on what your application is. If you don’t want a lid, it’s referred to as a fruit crate.

2 – Know your material choices

Industrial wooden boxes can be manufactured from Plywood, Softwood or Hardwood. The material you chose will most likely depend on what your application is. Have a read of this article if you need help deciding on the material.

3 – What size can you get

We’ve produce Cases & Crates machinery and products up to 15m long. There’s no job too big for us to produce a box for. In some cases we might be required to manufacture on your site (see more about onsite packing).

4 – Weight of your shipment

Understanding the weight of your shipment is imperative in making sure we produce a wooden box that’s fit for purpose. Whether its 1 tonne or 50 tonne, we can custom manufacture to ensure the desired strength is put into place to ship your goods.

With these tips in mind, there’s no such thing as a “standard box”, everything we do is custom made. But this doesn’t mean you need to order 100 boxes. We’re more than happy to work with you to produce 1 (providing it meets our MOV of $135+gst).
