A Custom Wood Crate Add-on to Make Loading Heavy Items Safe

Let's be honest, loading heavy items in-and-out of your wood crates is risky. Risky for both your staff and your product! Staff could get injured or equipment damaged, neither are situations you want to be dealing with.

How do we suggest you eliminate risk and difficulty? By incorporating loading ramps into your custom wood crates!
