Experienced Custom Wood Crating Company:
Servicing the Greater New York Area

Whether your items are heavy, high-value, unique, or fragile, Craters & Freighters offers crating and packaging solutions customized to meet their needs. Most packing and shipping companies have size and weight restrictions. Not us. We’ll crate and ship virtually anything virtually anywhere.

Our crating and packing experts will design and build fully customized crates that protect your assets from damage.  We build the crate that not only meets codes but ensures safety for any item and any need.  

To build an effective wooden shipping crate, our crating specialists consider many factors, including dimensions, weight, value, fragility, and final destination, prior to creation.  Each individual crate is optimized for each individual item. 

Crating with Care

At Craters & Freighters, we do not believe in one-size-fits-all crating solutions. The more closely a crate matches the size and shape of an item, the more secure that item will be.

That’s why we design and build the perfect crate ourselves. We also tailor our blocking, bracing, and padding schemes to ensure maximum protection. This is the key element in a successful crating project.  Crating projects take precision and keen attention to detail, every crate is designed perfectly for its particular item, including the protection necessary on the inside of the crate.

Our customers will tell you that our attention to detail is what enables their items to get to their destination safely and free of damage.

Protection Where It Matters Most

Understanding the severe and unpredictable nature of the shipping stream is key to a safe, secure shipping process. Our engineers will always account for the worst-case scenario and build a tailored crate to support the safest passage for your belongings. We invite challenging projects and know what it takes to get those projects through challenging conditions.
