Question: When is a custom crate required for my goods?
Answer: The idea of building customs crates are to protect your goods in transit.
We will advise to crate an item when:
Items with odd shapes such as antique furniture and sculptures, . When loading them along with other effects, there is a risk of them getting damages
Porous items such as glass and marble tops.
Large fragile items.
Items with very high value such as painting and other are objects.
One more thing that needs be to be considered is the type of wood used to build the crate. Under international regulations, ISPM15 certified wood is required. This is a regulation enforced in order to avoid the spread of plant, pests and diseases.
