At Kansas City Crates we take pride in every crate we manufacture. Our crates are made of all new materials carefully assembled for maximum strength.

Poor quality crates damage floors, injure handlers, and fail to protect the item inside.

As an uncrating service, we've seen some pretty ugly situations. We posted these pictures to educate the public what many other companies are selling.

Avoid a long claims process and get the ultimate protection for your valuables by choosing Kansas City Crates.

The bitter taste of poor quality lasts much longer than the sweetness of a cheap price.
