Customer Reviews


Working with Orange County Crating was the best experience! They were quick, made an excellent crate that arrive at its destination unharmed, and went above and beyond the call of duty trying to get my artwork picked up by FedEx - which was a nightmare.

They were so helpful, contacted me when the shipping issue arose, and tried to work things out for me over the phone. I am totally impressed with their dedication to servicing their clients and will used them as my main source of crating from this point forward. . .

I am so happy to find OC crating for my last packing job. They did such a great job and I can not say enough how professional they are. I highly recommend Tyler who is extremely professional, efficient and friendly! He measured all the equipments on site, and coordinated forklift, packing crew, shipping seamlessly, very impressive! His crew members were also extremely skillful, professional and very polite!

I had the pleasure of working with Joe Rivers at O.C.C. He was so very helpful. I was giving the task of having a crate made for our trade show properties. I had no clue about the dimensions of the items or what the best way was to pack them let alone what size crate I should be having built but thankfully Joe picked up the phone when I called Orange County Crating and was able to answer all of my questions as well as work with me back and forth through email. . .
