Craters & Freighters is America’s leading specialty crating company. Most pack and ship companies have weight and size limitations. They also can't offer crating and container options for high value, heavy, fragile and unique items. Craters & Freighters offers crating solutions for all of the above!
Craters & Freighters’ crates and packaging are designed to meet your item's needs. We consider many factors when designing our crates & packaging including weight, dimensions, value, fragility and final destination requirements. Our team of experts then goes to work on building a crate that best suits the item.View Details Request Estimate
