One of our most recent crates for shipping overseas. The client needed their 380 kg piece of artwork protected for its long journey from Vancouver to another continent.

As you can see from the pictures below – the art structure was not symmetrical, and pressure on anyone section or corner would cause significant damage. We overcame this by ensuring the crate was larger than needed and secured the inside structure to stop it from shifting during transport. Lastly, we wrapped the structure in heavy-duty moving blankets and pads to ensure there was no damage whatsoever.
