Art & Antique Shipping Services from Memphis, TN
Experience and Reputation
For over two decades museums, auctioneers, galleries, artists and collectors have relied on us to safely move their delicate and valuable pieces across the country and around the world.
Antique Pieces or Furniture:
Prior to packing, all items are evaluated to determine the best method of packing and shipping. Each item is wrapped accordingly to maintain protection and restrict movement during shipment. Instructions accompany specialty packed items to alert the recipient of the safest method to unpack the item.
Craters & Freighters' proven technique begins with a thorough assessment that considers factors such as product fragility, size, and value; pickup conditions; mode of transport; environmental factors such as climate; and final destination requirements. Each requirement is accounted for and is then factored into the appropriate container and cushioning method for ensuring damage free shipping.
