Our Auction Services

You can place your full trust and confidence in our nationwide network of experts and full coverage insurance.

We handle and ensure auction items ranging from road art and cars, items sold at industrial auctions, delicate art, and antiques.

Craters & Freighters holds a unique insurance policy, and we are authorized to pack and crate almost any high-value item with special arrangements through our insurance carrier.

Packaging Solutions That Support Our Crates

Our comprehensive crating services go hand-in-hand with the custom packaging plans designed to protect your assets. We know that these safety measures are just as vital to your item’s protection as the container itself. Utilizing every inch of space within the container, we make sure your valuables stay in place, unable to move, fitting meticulously in the crate for further protection.

Using high-end materials, our packing teams custom-design cushioning, wrapping, and supports to ensure a secure journey through the unpredictable shipping stream.
