Why Use a Custom Crating Company

Why Use a Custom Crating Company?

When it comes to packing, using a wood crate is one of the safest ways to transport your goods.

The main reason for using custom crating services is for safety. A team of packing experts will be deployed to your residence to pack your items up professionally, quickly, and safely. They can also provide hard to find assistance with those specialty items. If your items are very fragile, one of kind, sentimental, or very expensive, most experienced small moving companies, like Ship Smart, can provide custom crates that will make sure your items arrive safely. They can also back their packing skills with full-replacement insurance.

The second reason is time. Custom packing and crating are a great solution to save you time and money. Hiring experienced packers from an industry leader in small moves, reduces your hard work, time and materials. If you are moving into a new home, apartment, or office, do you really need to worry about the safety of your valuable, fragile, or sensitive items during the crazy busy period of moving from one place to another? Most people agree, they wish they could have spent more time saying good bye to friends and family.

Do I Need Custom Crating?

With most small moves, the packing protection provided by most professional small movers, should be enough for most household items. When you realize that you are unable to pack your items alone, no matter what the cause is – no time, not enough manpower, to many large and heavy items like furniture, inexperienced at packing, etc., then find out the cost that a small moving company will charge for packing your items.

After deciding to move forward with professional packing and shipping services, these expert packers will arrive at the destination equipped with years of experience and packaging supplies. Some of your large items like – heavy boxes, a gun safe, enormous pieces of furniture, pianos, and so on, won’t require custom-built crates. So your wallet or purse will thank you later.

Now if you’re moving any fragile, expensive, or valuable possessions, like the list below, consider crating:

  • Artwork including sculptures, paintings, and so on.
  • Fragile items made of mirrors, glass, marble, or other highly breakable material.
  • Older items like antique furniture.
  • Ornate chandeliers.
  • Collectors’ items.
  • Sensitive electronic equipment like computers, servers, and monitors.
  • A very expensive motorcycle that is too valuable to be transported any other way.
