Custom Wood Crates Little Rock
Wood Crating Services for Shipping from Little Rock Arkansas
Craters & Freighters of Little Rock is America’s leading specialty crating company. Most pack and ship companies have weight and size limitations. They also can't offer crating and container options for high value, heavy, fragile and unique items. Craters & Freighters offers crating solutions for all of the above!
Craters & Freighters’ crates are designed to meet your item's needs. We consider many factors when designing our crates including weight, dimensions, value, fragility and final destination requirements. Our team of experts then goes to work on building a crate that best suits the item. Your item may require a rugged wood crate or lighter packaging such as a custom corrugated box.
What's Inside Our Crates
Inside our crates and boxes, you’ll find custom packaging, blocking and bracing. These critical elements insure your item arrive safe, damage free, and on time. In other words, we don’t simply place your item in a crate or box. We take careful consideration into the best packaging and crating methods available for the item.

- Custom Wood Crating – For just about anything!
