Customer Reviews


All around great people. Show up and do what they say they will do.

Shipped a large and fragile 3D printer with them- showed up in perfect condition and was able to plug it in and go.

Shipped a few other large or strange items as well. Same story- showed up in the condition I gave it to them in.

Pricing is great too. Ive had to use crating services in other states and OCC seems to have it down to a science.

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. . .
