OUR PACKAGING SERVICES
From our base in Plymouth, we offer a wide range of bespoke timber packaging solutions to businesses and private individuals from across the world. From wooden pallets to timber packing cases and packing crates, we can securely package your goods, ready for transportation.
In addition to supplying custom made timber packaging to suit your needs, we also offer a complete collection and storage service, to help streamline and simplify the process.
For example, we can collect your goods in one of our dedicated vehicles, store them safely whilst onward travel is arranged and then pack your goods safely and securely (including additional protection such as silica desiccant and foil barrier bags) to ensure they arrive at their intended destination in pristine condition.
Whether you need a single case or multiple shipping containers transported, we can arrange to send your goods across the world safely and securely at a competitive price.
Our wooden pallets can be custom designed to meet your needs and accommodate the dimensions of your product, to ensure it’s safe and secure during the transit process.
Our timber packaging solutions and wooden Euro pallets are ISPM15 compliant and come with documentation to ensure a simple importing and exporting process.
Our most popular product, packing cases can be manufactured in any size to suit your needs. Whatever you need to transport, our packing cases can protect it in transit.
Here at R. West & Son, we can pack virtually anything. In the past, we’ve created bespoke packaging for everything from sewerage pipework, heavy machinery and medical equipment to sculptures, fine art and even specialist packaging to house a magician’s illusions!
We package and ship anything from a small batch of liqueur bottles to complete factories – machinery, stock and signage included. There really is no limit to the goods we can transport.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
“Finding a local company who could manufacture packing cases to meet the recent ISPM15 timber packaging regulations for our aftersales department was high on our agenda. R. West & Son in Plymouth has successfully provided us with a reliable solution to this problem.”
GRANT HOOPER, HEAD OF MATERIALS & AFTERSALES, PRINCESS YACHTS INTERNATIONAL PLC
“When we made the decision to move our manufacturing facility to China, there were several issues that needed hands-on management. When it came to shipping the machinery and components, the R. West & Son team took full control of the move, from arranging the containers to the packaging and paperwork required to complete the move. This was one less headache to deal with. A good, all-round job and R. West & Son are thoroughly recommended to anyone else needing a similar service.”
