  • How do I ship my cutaway?

    Posted on August 17th, 2015 admin No comments

    We all know what can happen to packages that get shipped through the mail—and larger packages tend to suffer even more abuse. So how do you carry your cutaway from one show to another without having it damaged as the fall trade show season quickly approaches? How can you transport and protect your trade show cutaway? With a custom permanent shipping container.

    At CalCo, we create and offer different shipping container options. Our steel framed wooden shipping containers are durable because of the angle-iron material used on the frame and edges to prevent it from getting damaged during long journeys. The felt covered bumpers lining the inside of the container hold and keep a cutaway in place during the shipping process. Each container is custom-made to your trade show cutaway and is painted a bright blue color so it’s easy to locate amongst several shipping containers. The heavy duty hasps on our containers can be locked and secured to protect your cutaway. We also have international grade shipping containers that are made with fully tested stronger-than-wood materials (non-wood) that help get cutaways through customs smoothly and to their destinations on time.

    Other additions to our shipping containers include custom holders for extra parts or literature, drawbridges for items on rolling stands, base mounts for displays, heat treatment for short-term international shipping and multiple product delivery.

    If you have specific requirements regarding the shipment of your cutaway, contact us and we’ll work to get it packed and transported in a timely and safe matter. If your trade show cutaway is smaller, check out our durable custom cases. We offer a multitude of sizes and styles from handheld, soft sided cases to larger, dense foam interior cases. Our cases are available in rugged PVC, aluminum, wood, canvas, plastic and more.

    Remember, the fall trade show season is right around the corner so it’s important to plan ahead and avoid rush charges by getting your cutaway created and shipped sooner rather than later.
