Crating with Care

At our Silver Spring Craters & Freighters, we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all crating and packing solutions. We precisely engineer our crates to closely fit whatever it will be protecting. The better the fit, the better the protection of the item. 

We are experts in designing and building the perfect crate ourselves. Our team knows that the blocking, bracing, and padding schemes on the inside of the crate are just as important as the wooden shipping crate itself, which is why we tailor every crate from the inside out to ensure maximum protection.

Our customers will tell you that our keen eye to detail is what enables their valuables to get to their final destination safely, undamaged, and with efficiency.

Protection Where It Matters Most

The shipping stream is unpredictable and it’s no place for poorly packaged items. The conditions are challenging, and the handling of crates can be rough. Because of this, secure packaging and crating is essential. If you want your valuables to arrive damage-free, it takes the kind of unparalleled expertise that Washington DC’s Craters & Freighters offers.
