Services Tailored to Your Item’s Specific Needs

Before any shipping plan is put in place, we will strategically assess your unique item. Considering factors such as risk and storage, as well as environmental factors, including climate, temperature and humidity, pickup conditions, mode of transport, and final destination requirements.

These specifications define the parameters for engineering the custom container and supporting protective structures for your piece. Cushioning and wrapping are only part of our process that ensures safekeeping throughout the severe, unpredictable shipping stream.

Your tailored container, packaging, and shipping plan will be specific to the item’s needs and your overall goals, meeting all country codes and requirements should they need international shipping.

  • Full Coverage Cargo – based on declared value
  • Limited Liability Insurance – for lost items only

Typically, if a customer elects to purchase our insurance coverage and a value is declared, Craters & Freighters will insure the item throughout its journey with us, from the time of pickup, during the packing and crating process, and through to delivery.

Onsite Packaging and Crating

With so many different kinds of art comes an array of needs. Often, local artisans can’t get their heavy, oversized, or awkward pieces to us- that’s not an issue, because we come to them.
