Custom Pallets & Skids


Providing Purpose-Built Support Structures with Custom Pallets and Skids

Craters & Freighters can build custom wood pallets and skids for just about anything that needs to be transported. Skids and pallets are an affordable alternative to wood crates for items that don’t require more extensive packaging.

Tailored Pallets

A pallet is a low, portable platform with or without sides used to handle, store, ship, transport, and move materials and goods. Pallets or load bases are usually constructed of wood and can be built to any specification in order to support loads of varying size and weight distribution.

Versatile Skids

  • A skid is a platform supported by two or more parallel runners that elevate the platform for lifting with mechanical equipment.
  • A skid differs from a pallet in that it is generally higher and does not have additional cross members and stringers as support beneath the runners.
  • Skids are used to support the load and assist with storage, handling, and transportation.

Packaging Solutions That Support Our Crates

Our comprehensive crating services go hand-in-hand with the custom packaging plans designed to protect your assets. We know that these safety measures are just as vital to your item’s protection as the container itself. Utilizing every inch of space within the container, we make sure your valuables stay in place, unable to move, fitting meticulously in the crate for further protection.

Using high-end materials, our packing teams custom-design cushioning, wrapping, and supports to ensure a secure journey through the unpredictable shipping stream.
