  • Propriety Prototypes
  • Heavy Machinery
  • Hazmat and Dangerous Goods

Crating in RTP

We build custom heat-treated wooden crates, pallets, and skids to properly protect assets of all shapes, sizes, and values during transport from point A to point B, no matter where point B may actually be.

Our expert project managers will conduct on-site consultations to preview your machinery or IT equipment and the location in which the items reside to develop a customized packing plan for your specific need.

On-Site Crating in RTP

For machinery or equipment too large or too cumbersome to move, we’ll bring our on-site crating team to you. We will prebuild the crates or skids needed to protect your items and assemble them on-site at your Research Triangle Park or Triangle area facility. If rigging or a forklift is needed, we’ll handle that too.

Shipping in RTP

No matter where you plan to ship your IT assets and technology systems, we will handle the logistics from start to finish. Our expert shipping team coordinates domestic air and ground shipments as well as international shipments and ocean transport.

Need custom critical or expedited services to support a priority project? We are happy to help. We will work on your timeline to execute our packing services and ship your assets to their intended destination. We’ll even set up White Glove Delivery services to uncrate, unpackage and place your items upon arrival to the designated recipient.
