Expertise That Delivers

Galleries, artists, and collectors rely upon us to move their delicate and valuable pieces safely across the country and around the world. We have shipped millions of dollars worth of paintings, sculptures, and other works of art. The area's foremost galleries and antique shops in Providence, Newport, The Cape, and Martha's Vineyard, know us as the company to rely up on for consistent, quality service.


Art & Antique Handling With The Utmost Care & Respect

The shipping of artwork cannot be entrusted to inexperienced shippers. Craters & Freighters' proven technique begins with a thorough assessment that considers factors such as product fragility, size, value, pickup conditions, mode of transport, environmental factors such as climate, and final destination requirements. Each requirement is factored into the appropriate container and cushioning system for ensuring damage free shipment.


Packaging Solutions In-House

Most "crating and shipping companies" are actually brokers who outsource the most critical task - the packaging of your items for safe transport - to so-called "agents" or "affiliates". Craters & Freighters physically performs - and insures - its own packaging and has 20 years of proven artwork packaging methods. When you choose Craters & Freighters, you know exactly who will be handling your items, and you can rest assured that the people handling your items are up to the task.

Give Us A Challenge, We Have A Solution

No move is too large or too small for Craters & Freighters. We have served clients moving everything from a single student painting home from college to entire high-value collections.


Simple Art & Antiques Shipping

We understand that different customers have different needs. Our customer service team will work with you to create a solution that meets your individual needs - from discussing alternative wrapping processes depending on the medium of artwork, to options for delivery and uncrating at the other end.
We've built our reputation on unique solutions. Craters & Freighters of Southern New England will cushion and custom crate fine artwork to ensure safety and security during shipping.
