We have a situation where we are going to be shipping large wooden crates the larges being (W) 48" (H) 48" (L) 240". Our trucking company who will be shipping these crates across North America use only covered van trailers with access only from the rear doors of the trailer. Getting the crate into and out of the trailer will be an issue. We would like a design on how we could modify the crate to be fork lifted from the end and set in place or have a retractable castor or wheel designed that would allow the crate to be easily put into the trailer. The item if it is a wheel would have to be inexpensive as it will be discarded and just considered part of the packaging.

The design could be a crate modification or a retractable wheel design. The wheel needs to be retractable because the crate cannot roll around in the cube of the trailer.
