The Cochran’s Process: Bundling For Shipment


Welcome to our video series on the manufacturing process of reclaimed wood flooring! We are proud to complete every stage of the process in Berryville, Virginia, and believe that the care we take in manufacturing produces a superior product. 

In this series, we will be taking a detailed look at how reclaimed wood is sourced, processed, and transformed into beautiful and durable flooring for homes and businesses. We will explore the different techniques used to bring out the natural character and patina of the wood, as well as the modern technologies used to ensure the stability and longevity of the final product. Whether you’re a homeowner, contractor, or simply interested in sustainable building materials, this series is sure to provide valuable insights into the world of reclaimed wood flooring.

Last Steps.

Once all defects are removed from the flooring boards, the pieces are ready to package and ship. We carefully stack the wood into neat, easy-to-carry piles, and secure them with plastic ties. Our bundles are then wrapped in house wrap and carefully stacked on pallets where they are wrapped once again and prepared for shipping. Then, we gently load the products up and send them on their way to their new home.

At Cochran’s Lumber, we want to take the very best care of the products we get to you. All the care we take during production means very little if the flooring arrives at its destination damaged. We work with a variety of shipping services to get your flooring to our customers in a timely and safe manner. Plus, our system of easily-accessible packages helps your flooring installers streamline their workflow as well as reduce the waste caused by broken products.

We know there’s nothing more disappointing than receiving your new flooring only to find them scuffed, cracked, or otherwise damaged, so we take great care to ensure that they get to you in peak condition.
