At Pacific Coast Crating we regard the quality of packing and wood crating of granite & marble slabs to be as important as the quality of product. We have a specially designed wooden crate for shipping slabs across the country or across the water. We have not had a single damaged slab in the 1000’s we have shipped, with 90% destined for Hawaii.
Large marble slabs and granite slabs are packed in wooden crates, resting on specialty foam cushioning and padded braces to keep them from moving around during transport. The slabs are also tightly compressed and locked in to prevent movement between the slabs of marble. Without this tight compression, the potential for damage is greatly enhanced.
The wooden crates are then assembled and ‘A-Frames’ attached to both ends of the crate to prevent the crate from tipping over.
