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!
