Custom Wooden Shipping Crates

Custom Wooden Shipping Crates

We’ve been producing high quality wooden crates for our customers for many years, packing and shipping a wide-range of eclectic articles from Tamworth to Timbuktu! A common reaction we get from our customers is how surprised they are by the care and attention to detail we apply to each job, regardless of value or size. We talk about the case building process in this article on the subject. However, we are firm believers in the idea that a picture speaks a thousand words, so we’ve put together a selection of images that demonstrate why we’re experts in our field. Whatever the cargo, whatever the destination, you can be sure that Alban Cases has a packing solution guaranteed to give you complete peace of mind. If you would like to talk to one of our packing and packaging experts, call us on 01582 493099 or email sales@alban-cases.co.uk Read more...

We were lucky to get a call from Haymans, producers of very fine English gin, who told us they needed some expert help with the packing and transportation of their traditional copper still (named, affectionately, after Christopher Hayman’s mother Marjorie‘). We dispatched our team to the Haymans distillery in Witham, Essex, where we got to work building crates to house the various components of the still. Throughout the process, our team borrowed from years of packing expertise to ensure this wonderful piece of equipment was packed safely and securely for the journey to Stuttgart. We’ve documented the entire process in the picture gallery below. Read more...

The hit show War Horse has been seen by over 7 million people worldwide. The show is an absolutely fabulous combination of storytelling, puppetry and stellar theatre design, based on the original story by the award-winning children’s writer, Michael Morpurgo.

In September 2016, the puppets from the show were sold at a charity auction at Bonhams. The sale raised nearly £70,000 for the charity ‘Handspring Trust‘, which is the non-profit organisation set up by the puppet’s creators the Handspring Puppet Company to bring creative opportunities to disadvantaged communities in the company’s native South Africa.

Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

Anyone following our progress over the years will know that in partnership with our sister company, Alban Shipping, we’ve been asked to pack and transport a huge range of objects – from scale models of the Titanic and Pete Waterman’s train collection, to McLaren sports cars and a valuable Chinese Dragon Clock. We thought we’d share some of the more unusual projects we’ve undertaken as part of our ‘Making a Case‘ blog. First up, a high-value bronze horse that needed a temporary – but robust – ‘stable’ for its journey from the UK to its new home on the east coast of the US. Read more...
