Let's Dance!

This was too fun to crate...... a disco ball!

This amazing piece of work has thousands of tiny glass mirrors!

Light reflects off the mirrors and casts a dancing light show across any party.

Crating 3D Art!

This was an amazing piece of 3D art created by a customer of ours. It is an incredible piece of art that needed extra attention when packaging it for travel.

Great care is always taken to protect not just the main image, but the entire piece, frame and all.

Foam is used to ensure the item does not move or shift inside the crate during its travels.

Wood slats are installed as extra measures of bracing the item inside the crate for transit.

We do not allow the wood to directly touch the art. That can scratch or damage the object should any vibration occur.

The interior of the crate is not the only focus; we also take great care in prepping the exterior of the crates as well. All shipping crates are marked with necessary stencils and wood treatment markings. 

This 3D art is just about all crated up and ready to go! One the final top piece is added, job will be complete!

Call us for any of your custom crating needs. We service all of Arizona and are happy to give free quotes!

Custom Wood Skids

Sometimes, you have a tool or item that needs secured for transport, but a wood crate is just not the solution. We have the answer: custom wood skids.

This is an air vent/ duct system that needed to be secured for transport. But, a full crate was not the best option in this case.
So, we built a custom wood skid. Once it was completed, we added additional features to secure the piece for travel.

And off it goes! Headed to it's destination via a flatbed truck.

Call us for any of your custom wood skid needs. We offer free estimates and we cover the entire state of Arizona.

Not Your Normal Tree!

Now, this was an absolutely incredible job we handled!
This sculpture is so intricate and enormous you just stare in awe!

The sculpture had to be disassembled and property prepped and secured for transport. 

Every piece was custom made to offer the highest level of support for the sculpture. 

Padding was added to the areas at most risk of scratching or rubbing. 

We can't express enough just how much we appreciate jobs such as this. It offers a challenge not only due the sensitivity of the object at hand, but also for the custom design. Just an amazing piece of art!

Call us for any needs you may have for sculpture securing and transportation, or any other fine art that needs the highest level of protection. 
We offer free estimates and cover the entire state of Arizona. And on-site packaging or crating is never an issue! Let us come to you!

Lumber Market Changes

This week could be a very big week for the lumber industry. On October 12, the softwood lumber agreement and one year standstill period will expire. What does this mean? The US could start imposing higher import tariffs on all Canadian softwood. It is said that the US has a goal to cut Canadian lumber imports, which currently make up approximately 33% of our lumber supply, down to 22%. 

What does this all mean? Well, for the Canadian workforce, it could potentially cause mills to shut down and workers to be laid off. For the US, there is potential for numbers to increase if we gain back such a large percentage of the market share. 

Representatives from the US and Canada are to meet this week to discuss the future between the two countries imports and exports. And according to reps from Canada, if th US does not back down, and enforces new higher tariffs, they will take this to litigation. 

Stay tuned......

Shrink Wrap Under the Sun

We had another productive visit in Tucson!
The job we performed down there was prepping and heat shrink wrapping of another airplane cockpit.

As always, careful details are put in to the prepping and securing of the item we will be working with. We also want to ensure the item is completely protected during the shrink wrap process.

Once the prep work is complete, the film is positioned. It is then activated using a propane torch to heat it up and allow it to mold to the object, offering complete protection. This heat shrink wrap protects not only from dust and dirt, but harmful UV rays as well.

Call us here at Crating Technology for any of your heat shrink wrap needs.
We service all of Arizona and ofer fre estimates as well!
