Custom Pallets & Skids


Purpose-Built Custom Pallets and Skids

Craters & Freighters Birmingham creates custom wood pallets and skids for just about anything you need. If you’re looking to ship or store your assets with confidence, let us help. Sturdy skids and pallets are a great alternative to wood crates or containers for oversized and bulky pieces of machinery, industrial equipment, and for items not needing more extensive packaging.

Our pallet and skid team partners with various local industries that depend on our vast array of palletizing and shipping services. When your assets are durable and can survive the shipping stream without the added protection of corrugated, wood crates, or packaging, our custom pallets and skids will ensure their safety.

Customized Pallets

Pallets are portable platforms that sit low to the ground and can be designed with or without sides. They are intended to help store, ship, and move assets of all sizes. We provide our custom pallets for both raw materials and finished goods.

Our pallets or load bases are usually made of wood and can be designed to any specification to support loads of varying sizes and weight distribution.

We design pallets for several Birmingham industries, including:

We understand the nature of the industries we work with and never take a one-size-fits-all approach to their palletizing and shipping needs. Your organization deserves the best shipping company in Birmingham for your project.

Multi-Purpose Skids

A skid is a platform that has at least two parallel runners lifting it to make it easier for mechanical equipment to raise and move it. This differs from a pallet, as it generally sits slightly higher and doesn’t have cross members or stringers for support.

We provide skids to stabilize loads and help with storage, handling, and transportation. The high quality of our materials and wood contribute to the safety of your asset. With our skids, your rugged, solid, and oversized items will be secure during transport or while in storage.

If you’re looking to move your goods or equipment successfully, we’ll manage it from start to finish.
