Crating Fees

Certain parts such as wings, frames, spars, vee struts, sheet metals and other large items will incur a crating charge to cover our costs (materials and labor) of building a custom crate for shipping.

Our website has been programmed to add the appropriate crate fee to any product that requires a crate. However, Univair reserves the right to adjust your final shipping costs if our material costs have increased or if we overlooked any products requiring a crate.

Crating fees shown below are subject to change at any time without notice.

Please note that crating charges are in addition to shipping charges. Due to their large size, crates can only be shipped via FREIGHT.

The prices below are accurate at the time this article was published. Univair reserves the right to adjust the crating charges below at any time without notice.

European Union Customers: Crate charges for orders shipped to the European Union may be higher than those listed above. EU regulations required specially treated wood to prevent the infestation of the pinewood nematode. Our prices will be determined by the cost from our supplier. Orders may require an additional 7 to 10 working days to obtain these crates from our supplier.
