Export Packing Services

At Days Machinery Movers, our expertise in export and domestic packing applies to everything from fragile electronic control cabinets to a complete machine line, from simple skidding and shrouding to the latest packing technology for demanding military and commercial applications. We are your crating and packaging experts located in Elkhart, Indiana. Whether moving an entire factory or a priceless artifact, we make sure it arrives at Point B in the same condition in which it left Point A. Choose the Days Export Packing Division for all of your custom crating and packing needs. It’s all about first-class service and expertise for when it’s too valuable for anything less.

What Makes Our Packaging Services Unique?

Your high-value machinery, equipment, products, and artifacts require the protection Days Export Packing can provide. From handling vibration during shipping to moisture control, the elements, and corrosion inhibitors, we prepare for every challenge that the journey can bring with structural integrity built right into the shipping crate or skid.

Working hand in hand with our Machinery Moving Division allows us to be involved from start to finish on many projects. That way, we are able to measure, design, and build the proper crates and custom skids or foundations required for each machine, component, or item that needs to be shipped.

We apply customized export packing techniques for each specific product, including innovative packing procedures for cost and weight savings. This includes ocean freight packing with our custom preservation methods to prevent damage from corrosion, dust, and foreign objects.

We have developed unique, specific, and cost-effective methods of preserving, skidding, blocking, and bracing for successful container shipments. Overweight and oversized packaging and onsite packaging are also part of our expertise. Our experienced and knowledgeable personnel are trained in rigging and safety certified at all levels. With our other corporate partners, Days Machinery Movers and Days Distribution & Logistics, we can pack, deliver, and install in one turnkey operation.

We provide the latest packing technology for demanding military and commercial applications, and we are ISPM-15 compliant.

Our Rail Spur is an added benefit for many customers requiring transloading of their equipment from rail to truck or vice versa. Often, products, machinery, and even cargo trailers and RVs can be moved long distances via rail much more cost-effectively than by truck. By offering transloading, we can assist our customers in keeping costs down, making us a beneficial business partner. We also work with freight forwarding companies for your overall convenience.
