Customer Testimonials:

"Dear John,

The table was delivered today and I am in awe of your packing! Great job.
I'll write a note on Yelp if I can find how to do that. You really solved my
problem and we are most appreciative of the care you took of this single

Thanks again,


"I made a custom Cherry wood blanket chest & needed it shipped to California. I checked with a few shippers & decided on C & F. John showed me his operation & assured me the chest would be well taken care of in shipment.

It arrived there yesterday in perfect condition. Accordingly, I won't hesitate to use him & your organization again. Please convey my appreciation to John & his staff!!!"

Craters & Freighters was founded in June 1990. The company serves residential and businesses in all sectors including telecommunications, electronics, medical equipment, aerospace, biotechnology, and heavy machinery. With expertise that delivers, the company dominates the specialty freight industry.

We are committed to universal consistency, tracking & communications, and the continuous improvement of the packaging and logistics processes for our clients. We assess your current packaging, claims and transportation costs. We then offer recommendations for improved packaging and cushioning in order to reduce your claims, and also provide advice on how to reduce transportation costs associated with weight and dimensional weight.

Products are subject to many hazards during transportation. The major cause of damage is shock and vibration, followed by rough handling, compression, puncture and abrasion. Your valuable products will be handled many times by hand and/or mechanical means between the time they leave your door and arrive at their destination. And they will travel with a myriad of other products (FAK) when transported by LTL, LCL or Air Freight. If you want to be sure yours are packed and crated to withstand the rigors of transportation, Craters & Freighters provides the expertise that delivers.
