Custom Crating and Packing Services by Packair

In-house custom crating and packing comes standard.

In keeping with this one-stop shopping and shipping approach, Packair was among the first to become a certified cargo screening facility in Los Angeles to offer customers one more time-saving, security-providing service.


With our own fleet of trucks and vans, Packair can pick up items from your location or from the designated pick up location so that we can properly transport the items to our warehouse for packaging. We usually blanket wrap items, but will also bring pre-made crating for the items if we feel need additional security. Pick-ups are scheduled ahead of time and we will do our best to work within your time parameters.

We offer custom crating and blocking & bracing for difficult, irregular, or fragile equipment. Our services also include a consultative approach on your product's packaging requirements. Our packing experts will work with you to devise packaging options to ensure safe transport and delivery. Let us help reduce your company's shipping costs, damages, and lost revenues with our custom packing options.

Corrugated Containers

Packair provides custom corrugated containers to meet any shipping need. Corrugated is a durable, versatile, and lightweight material used for custom-manufactured shipping containers. We use a minimum 275 lb double wall corrugated fiberboard, which is made up of three sheets of linerboard with two mediums or flutes in between when building custom corrugated boxes.

Wooden Crates

Packair fabricates custom wooden crates to protect items whose value or fragility requires the highest level of packaging. We offer a variety of crate styles designed to match the unique characteristics of each item we package, including size, weight, fragility, and orientation.

All crates are designed to be reusable. Moreover, all crates adhere to ISPM-15 ("bug stamp"), making them fully compliant with the requirements of participating countries.
