Customer Reviews


I am a high end Mantiques dealer ( Antiques Geared Towards Men ). Orange County Crating has successfully assisted us in shipping over a $1,000.000,000 of antiques over the past 3 years. They are very responsive and professional. Many of our clients rave about their quality of the crates. We would not have been as successful without Orange County Crating.

They are great and one of the best in the business.
