With over 100 years of experience, our knowledge in manufacturing and supplying wooden packaging and shipping crates is second to none. From wooden shipping crates to large packing boxes we can accommodate all of your packaging requirements.

There’s no job too large or too small for R West & Son.

Our wooden packing cases are manufactured to your requirements and we are happy to provide advice on the most suitable packing cases and packing crates for your needs. From designing cases, through to construction, we’ll make sure that we contact you every step of the way.

Constructed with a timber base and frame

Our packing cases are really popular, and are the product most frequently chosen by our customers. These cases ensure that your goods are protected, as they are sealed and enclosed. They are a great option if you are exporting goods overseas or across the UK.

They are built with a timber base and frame and the sides are a strong sheet material. Designed for durability, you also have the option of adding a protective lining. Packing cases can be manufactured in any size you require, dependent on the product. They can also be supplied flat-packed (for you to assemble around the load) or fully assembled with a screwed lid (for you to load). The cases can be stacked, to gain more shipping space.

Certifications and accreditations

It’s important to take a good look at the certifications and processes a company offers. This is essential when choosing the correct packaging company for your specific needs. Check whether the company is a member of the UK Wood Packaging Material Marking Programme (UKWPMMP) and The Timber Packaging and Pallet Confederation (TIMCON). Are they fully ISPM15 compliant and audited on a bi-annual basis? ISPM15 is the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all forms of packaging made from solid wood, and helps protect the world’s forests from disease and trade from costly delays. It is imperative that you check credentials to ensure they are meeting the industry’s exact specifications.

Packing Crates and Packing Cases-Timber Packing Crate-R West & Son

Custom-made packing crates

Packing crates can be manufactured with a solid top and base and with slatted sides. This provides all-round physical protection for your goods, whilst leaving them visible to create a simpler customs inspection, as there’s no need to repackage afterwards. These are perfect for items that can survive exposure to the elements, such as motorbikes or outboard marine engines.
