Crating Industrial Equipment From Auction

We Pack & Ship Big

March 10th, 2016 by

Custom Crates PittsburghGot something heavy, large, fragile, or all three to get from here to there? Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship has all the capabilities to solve your most complex packing and shipping challenges. A recent example is a large (56″ x 56″ x 103″) circuit breaker weighing 3000 lbs and requiring special protection to ship overseas via ocean freight. We started by wrapping  the unit in 6 mil  VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) shrink film to protect from the corrosive effects of salty sea air. The next step was to custom crate the unit in a heavy-duty export compliant crate equipped with high-tech Sorbothane vibration isolating pads that lower the natural frequency of a system (like a container ship engine) to below the excitation (or disturbing) frequency (think: less shake delivers a better cake). Finally, the crate was equipped with shock-watch & tilt indicators, and banded for extra crate strength with high-tensile metal banding.

The Week That Was

October 4th, 2014 by

IMG_0232The best part of the shipping business is the variety of folks, items, and destinations you deal with. Here’s a quick sample from the past week:

  • Export crated and shipped a 900 lbs mechanical grapple going to Western Australia. As shown in the picture below, this awesome piece looks like the business end of of a tyrannosaurus rex!
  • Shipped ten beautiful works of art by local artist Michael Lotenero to the Morrison Gallery in Kent, CT
  • Picked-up and shipped to domestic and many international destinations lots purchased by 20 plus clients of Concept Art Gallery from the auction held on 10/27. Many of the paintings were from the estate of Jane Haskell, a very renowned Pittsburgh artist who passed away a year ago. We were very proud to have assisted Ms Haskell’s daughters in packing-up many of the remarkable pieces created by their mother.  Concept’s next auction is on December 6th.
  • Provided “last mile” delivery services for a logistics company coordinating the roll-out of a merchandising program to a national retailer. Stores visited ranged as far as Erie, PA and Johnstown, PA.
  • Crated and provided next-day transport services for a local art collector for a painting going to a restoration firm in Eastern PA. We received the call from this collector’s office on Tuesday afternoon, picked-up the piece & crated it that day, and transported on our own truck to deliver the next day.

We Crate Really Big Equipment

August 23rd, 2014 by

Here are some pictures of a crating job we completed this week. Six crates of large gas metering equipment being shipped by ocean overseas. Two of the equipment pieces measured 28 feet long by 10 feet wide by 10 feet high and weighed 35,000 lbs each. All equipment needed to be wrapped in soft-foam and marine-grade plastic prior to crating.

Crate Big Things!

March 3rd, 2014 by

iStock_crates2014 has been a great year in terms of presenting us with a number of interesting industrial crating projects. Here’s a quick sampling:

  • The Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship on-site crating team completed a project last week for large machine tool manufacturer involving the shipment of a large metallurgy furnace to Asia. Sensitive electronic control panels and units needed wrapped and protected against the corrosive effects of salty ocean air. This was done using 7-mil marine grade polyethylene shrink film and desiccant as calculated per the MIL-STD-2073 specification.
  • Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship provides “ready-to-assemble” custom export (ISPM-15) crates to a large West Virginia manufacturer of conveyor and material handling equipment. This customer often requires these heavy-duty, custom sized crates on very short notice with 2nd day shipping (and sometimes next day shipping)Pak Mail Crates
    of the units. We have proud to say that we have never missed a deadline ever with this client and despite the dreadful winter  we have experienced this past (and present!) winter. We ship these crates “ready-to-assemble” to reduce the freight classification and minimize the freight cost. You may be surprised to learn how inexpensively we can ship custom crates around the country.

Here’s to more crate big things in 2014!
