What is Aftermarket Packaging? Aftermarket packaging is packaging for aftermarket parts (also called spare parts or service parts). Aftermarket parts are replacement parts made by someone other than the manufacturer of the original equipment. They often work as well as the original parts and are a lot less expensive.
These parts often have to be shipped from the manufacturer to either a retailer or the end user, and that is where aftermarket parts packaging, service part packaging, and automotive parts packaging comes in.
Benefits of Service Part Packaging
Aftermarket packaging helps to protect the parts from damage while they are in transit. Packaging is made from materials that absorb impact and prevent the transfer of energy. Among the packaging services we offer are crating services, custom pallets, industrial packaging, wood packaging, kitting and assembly, corrugated solutions and more. Corrugation is just one method which can increase the strength of a packing material by creating multiple folds. The folds make the material stiffer and less likely to collapse when force is applied, protecting the contents within.
Automotive Parts Packaging
Automotive service parts are among those that consumers most often seek, so much so that many people automatically think automotive when they hear the phrase “aftermarket parts.” You may have to ship one large part or a bunch of very small ones. For that reason, it is a good idea to seek custom aftermarket parts packaging for your shipping needs. If you have special requirements or specifications for your automotive packaging services, we can meet them for you.
Service Part Packaging
Service parts are available for many types of equipment other than automobiles. Any manufactured piece of equipment is probably going to break down and require replacement parts at some point, meaning that there are service parts for almost every industry to meet that need.
Part of the value that we offer includes performing labor-intensive tasks related to packaging for you. We help you organize your warehouse effectively with custom pallets. Our expertise in automotive engine packaging, drivetrain and powertrain packaging, as well as military packaging and Mil-Spec packaging demonstrates our attention to detail and ability to comply with the requirements of a contract.
