How to Ship A Whale – Custom Crating with Pack N Send!

How to Ship A Whale – Custom Crating with Pack N Send!

We recently had an unusual request for custom crating – one of our commercial clients needed a large, odd shaped item to be packaged for shipping cross country – a 10 foot whale!

Needless to say, this was something unusual. The Whale was a theater prop that would be used by the Church at the site delivery point – and it was critical that it arrive completely intact, and on time.  Pack N Send was up to the challenge with our custom crating and packaging.

Pick-Up and Delivery to and from Texas.

The Pack N Send performs crating at our Houston, TX office. Our workers will pad, protect, and strap down all of your belongings and take them to our shop for high-quality packing and crating. If you live outside our service area, we are more than happy to arrange for one of our reputable logistics partners to pick up your items.

Secure Custom Crating in Texas

You can rest assured that your cargo will be protected throughout the whole journey. We use only the highest quality construction lumber and panels for our crates. Our standard industrial packing product consists of a substantial forklift-able platform with weight equal to the equipment or machine we are crating.

Pack n Send crates are custom made to ensure an exact fit. Proper padding is used to further protect your items. Many items such as lamps, paintings, and sculptures may not require a crate and can be boxed and shipped. We work closely with our customers to determine the safest and most economical way to ship items safely and efficiently.

Packing charges vary depending on the size and number of items. For fragile items, Pack n Send can use a combination of bubble wrap, peanuts, Styrofoam, and double boxing, or build a custom crate.

Estate packing is also an area of our expertise.

Here are some examples of our unusual custom packing and crating work include:

  • an airplane from an amusement park ride
  • a prototype of an electric chair
  • hundreds of pieces of beleek China
  • the original Six Flags over Texas
  • an original painting valued at over $850,000
  • a computerized dragon
  • the shell of a car
  • a 10’ Alaskan Polar taxidermy bear

More commonly seen examples are:
