It’s always a good feeling when someone helps you reduce your project costs.  As the Federal and State Governments hand down their 2015 budgets, Aussie Crates will help you work within yours.
 
Because we custom design and build our wooden crates, boxes, cases and pallets, we can discuss different options with you to help meet your specific project requirements.  When you weigh up the costs versus benefits, remember to ask yourself if a cheaper alternative is really worth the risk when you want your products to arrive in one piece?
 
We provide free quotes over the phone and for more complex jobs we will come to your premises, free of charge, to measure up the items to be packed.
 
There are winners and losers in any budget, but you will benefit by choosing Aussie Crates to provide you with a high quality timber packaging solution, at a competitive price and within superior turnaround times.
 
Talk to our friendly and knowledgeable team to see how our timber packaging can be customized to suit your budget.

ALL WRAPPED UP

Plain or pretty - plastic wrapping and shiny paper both have their own purpose.
 
Heat-shrink plastic wrapping reduces the risk of equipment getting damaged while in transit or storage.
 
Shiny wrapping paper usually promises something special inside.  But whether it’s an Easter egg or a large, valuable piece of machinery, you want to open it in one piece without any unpleasant surprises!
 
Your goods can either be plastic wrapped first then secured with some timber packaging, or packed in a wooden crate then all the items heat-shrink wrapped together.  We can do this in the Aussie Crates factory or at your own premises, whichever is most convenient for you.
 
Happy Easter from the Aussie Crates team and please call us on (08) 9358 1355 if you’d like more information on our heat-shrink plastic wrapping service.

Sending fragile freight needn’t be a nail-biting experience.  With sturdy, high quality timber cases and wooden boxes from Aussie Crates, you can rest assured your goods will arrive in one piece.
 
A shipping agency in Perth was sending some state-of-the-art computer server equipment back to the USA.  The value and fragility of this equipment meant we had to include additional protection.  Two different designs of pine & ply cases were built and because nails or screws couldn’t be used, re-usable fasteners held the base & lid together.
 
As with all our timber packaging going overseas, the timber used was ISPM-15 certified to meet all the quarantine and customs export specifications.

Our client dropped off 7 cylindrical steel screens, each weighing about 300kg, for Aussie Crates to build customised timber export crates for and pack them up.  When built, each one measured almost 2.5m long and 1.7m high.
 
Additional bracing timbers were inserted to hold the steel screens in place and provide added strength where the screen sat on the crate base.  The ends of each screen were also bolted to the crate to prevent any movement during transit.

Steel banding around the crates was an extra safeguard to minimise any damage to the crate and its contents while travelling.  The crates were then being loaded into shipping containers for sending overseas.

Packing up clients’ personal treasures and works of art makes a pleasant change from the industrial equipment more commonly seen at Aussie Crates. 
 
Crafted and displayed in the Boranup Gallery in the south-west of Western Australia, these unique Marri burl tables caught the eye of an overseas businessman.  Picturing them in his dining room, he bought the last three from the gallery to be shipped back to his home in Malaysia.  Because these burls take 1000 years to form, they are very rare, extremely hard to source and are now highly sought after all over the world.
 
A timber crate protected the mallee root base, with the more fragile table top wrapped in protective foam and secured in a fully enclosed case.  The diameter of the table top was almost the threshold size for a shipping container, so the case design and amount of timber used had to allow for this.
 
The majestic Marri tree is a distinctive bloodwood native to Western Australia.  As the name suggests, the timber is high in gum but its feature grain is popular for making fine, handcrafted furniture.

You might have found the answers to some of your questions on the FAQ page of the Aussie Crates website, but if not, please give us a call.  There are also some details we need from you in order to help with your timber packaging project.
 
You’ll want your quote and lead-time from us as soon as possible, so it would help us achieve this if you have the following information available when you contact us.
·       Dimensions – the length, width and height in millimetres (mm) that you want the inside of the box or crate to be.  Please allow an extra 50mm on all dimensions.
·       Weight of the item to be packed and any special handling requirements?
·       Where is your item going – within WA, interstate or overseas?  Different countries have different regulations and restrictions on import and export packaging.
·       What mode of transport is being used – truck, train, plane or ship?  Indicate if the crate or box will be put in a container and if you have the relevant handling equipment.
·       Do you have any other special requirements?  For example, heat-shrink or plastic wrapping, foam protection, tar paper lining, special labelling or stencilling, ISPM-15 , H3 or H4 treated timber.
We understand you might not always have all these details to hand, but the more information we have, the quicker we can cost and complete your project.  That way we’ll both be happy.
