Please take a look below at some of or recent jobs:
Remote Control Plane Crate and Ship
This 8 foot long model airplane is the centerpiece of our clients Trade Show presentation. They were looking for a reusable crate that could be used for each time they needed to ship this plane to the next expo.

We designed a cradle housing for the plane that allowed the bulk of the pressure to be on the fuselage which is the sturdiest part of the model. The cradle took pressure off the landing gear and allowed the plane to sit in foam while strapped with Velcro.

The Velcro holds the plane into position as well as the wings which come off the plane and are also safely placed on foam and Velcro strapped to the floor.

Cradle holding system was designed so that there was only one way for the plane to be placed back into the crate for the return home. The wings also have only one way each will fit back under the plane inside the sheet foam and Velcro straps.

The finished product is a fully cleated crate that includes two separate pieces for the top and reinforced sidewalls with extra 1x4 cleating.

Storage Unit Items Palletize and Ship
A company had a storage space full of boxes and items they need palletized and shipped from Moreno Valley California to Florida. 

Gateway Crate and Freight personnel picked these up from a storage unit facility and took them to our warehouse where the items were safely stacked on pallets, shrink wrap, banded and shipped successfully across the country.

This kind of service saves money compared to moving, as long as you can limit the amount of pallets to 3-4 or less. This one we were able to get on 2 full size pallets. Our Southern California team has the experience to ensure your items get packed well enough to make this long journey.

Design Prototype Pack and Crate for Export
Inside this crate is a delicate casted prototype of an item needed for display at an international design show. The packing on this item needs to be more than sufficient to protect it from damage.

Gateway Crate and Freight So Cal crating and packing expertise made us a perfect choice for this delicate piece. This item needed a lot of TLam Foam custom cut to keep the item from moving or shifting in the crate during transportation.

The item is secured in place by a foam that provides rigidity but at the same time gives the item the proper cushioning it needs for the journey overseas.
