The Secret to Our Success is Inside Our Crates

How do we ensure that the items we ship arrive in exactly the same condition they were in when we got them? It’s all about the tailored packaging and engineering we put into every item we pack. While some shippers simply place items in crates with minimal padding, we give every item the specific packaging and crating solution it calls for.

Our customized wooden crates are engineered to match the item they protect perfectly. Craters & Freighters Lehigh Valley has a team of crating experts who pay close attention to all the details, ensuring that your items arrive safely through the inconsistencies of shipping, whether by land, sea, or air. 

We will always utilize supports, blocking, bracing, and padding to achieve the perfect balance of inner and outer support for your belongings.
