History of Custom Crating, Christchurch

Custom Crating began with a couple of brothers looking for the solution to a problem. It has grown from a small business, based in the family garage to a successful business building crates to ship goods all around New Zealand and the world.

Ian Coppard has now been building custom made crates and boxes for 25 years. He has designed crates for goods from large scale manufacturers to people moving house. He is able to work out a solution to even the most difficult shape and size.

“One of our crates was on the back of a truck in Australia. As it went under an overpass, it hit the overpass and the top corner of the box was broken. The million dollar machine inside was undamaged. The crate did it’s job.” says Ian.

Our regular customers value the personal contact with Ian, who designs, builds and delivers the crates.   

Please note, the customer will pack items, arrange shipping, insurance and other certification.

Great Crates! Great Service!​
