By specializing in customized wooden shipping crates, Valley Box has set itself a part from the competition.
San Diego crating project scope
San Diego crating solution design starts with assessing each customer's specific needs and goals then asking the right questions to find the best solution. President of Valley Box, Bob Eschwege, says,
"The smallest common denominator is size and weight. That is where we start.”
From our San Diego location an experienced Packaging Expert contacts the customer to get the full scope of the wooden shipping crate solution design requirements. Often the Packaging Expert will go to the customer's San Diego facility in order to take precise measurements and pictures of the product.
What if the customer isn't in San Diego?
- Option A) The customer can choose to measure their product themselves following our helpful video, "How to measure a part for packaging".
- Option B) The customer can send the 3D files of their product and Valley Box can design the wooden shipping crate in SolidWorks®around their part.
San Diego crating solution design
Valley Box Packaging Engineers work with 3D SolidWorks® or 2D AutoCAD® to create wooden shipping crates that best fit the customer's unique product.
Valley Box's engineers breathe life into wooden shipping crate designs utilizing 3D drawings and modeling software. Alicia Guillette, Vice President of Valley Box, explains,
"The software can also help reduce costs, by performing simulated stress tests and load tests on designs to see what the products can carry and withstand during travel. This process can eliminate the need for expensive drop tests and provides the customer with a realistic, visually appealing, 3D drawing."
