Why Choose Craters & Freighters Detroit
Experience & Reputation
Founded in 1990, Craters & Freighters created an industry by establishing a nationwide network of packaging, crating, and shipping centers that specialize in items that are too large, valuable, and/or fragile to be handled by traditional shipping companies. 25 years later, the company still dominates the specialty freight industry.
Craters & Freighters has developed proprietary methods of handling, wrapping, cushioning, and packaging large, valuable, and fragile items. We understand that these items require proper cushioning systems, stabilization, and professionally built containers in order to be shipped safely and securely.
In-House Packaging Methods
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 from 67 locations nationwide, relying upon 20 years of proven packaging methods. When you choose Craters & Freighters, you know exactly who will be handling your items, and you can rest assured that they are up to the task.
No move is too large or too small for Craters & Freighters. We have served clients moving everything from a single painting to entire data centers.
