  1. What is the difference between a packing crate and a packing case ?
    Packing cases or boxes (they are the same) are solid on all sides. It surrounds the contents with timber cladding and is fully secure. Packing crates have slatted sides and top and solid base, leaving the contents fully visible. Ideal for facilitating customs inspections, reducing the need for re-packaging after a thorough investigation!
