2-Way, 4-Way New & Reconditioned Pallets & Skids

Standard, Reconditioned and Custom Pallets/Skids for Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Many items can be safely packaged on a pallet at a fraction of the cost of a crate or box. Our selection of pallets and skids includes those that are new, reconditioned, and custom-built. These pallets and skids are carefully built and subjected to rigorous quality control standards to ensure their structural safety. We can supply you with affordable, new or reconditioned pallets and skids in standard sizes (36" x 36", 42" x 42", 48" x 40", and 48" x 48"), or custom build pallets and skids to accommodate the size and weight of your loads in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Wooden Crates in Custom Sizes for Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Wooden crates are a cost-effective solution for shipments for which a pallet is insufficient, but a fully enclosed box unnecessary. Crates are open-sided containers which form a frame that encloses the cargo. They can be outfitted with SkidMates or foam. Crates are ideal for large machinery, equipment and other heavy-duty items because these items don't require the added protection of a fully enclosed box and Rancho Santa Margarita clients are able to save money on the packaging and freight costs. Orange County Crating's proprietary software ensures that the design of your crate will be precisely engineered and manufactured, and our experienced, thorough professionals pack your items for maximum safety throughout the shipping process. For added protection, most items are wrapped in shrink wrap or some other flexible barrier packaging before being placed inside the crate. Call us today; our experts will help you determine if a crate is right for shipping your item safely to its final destination.

Customer Reviews


As an exhibitor at a large show at the Anaheim Convention Center, my largest shipping crate was damaged and rendered unusable. With only 36 hours notice, I called Tyler at Orange County Crating who quickly gave me a fair quote and delivery time. My new crates are being delivered today several hours early and we will now be able to tear down, pack up and return to NY later today. Highly recommend these guys - pricing was awesome and service perfect! Great company!
