Frequently Asked Questions about San Diego Crating & Packaging
I have an international shipment. Are the customs, duties, and taxes included in your quoted price?
No, it is impossible to estimate customs, duties, and taxes charges. You will have to arrange for the payment of these fees when the delivery agent contacts you.
My grandmother left me her possessions. How can you help me ship her estate to where I live?
An added benefit of working with Craters & Freighters is that we know how to separate various assets within an estate. Our experts will help you organize and categorize the items that need to be moved to your destination. We ship to single or multiple locations, which means that you can easily share the inheritance with your siblings or other close relatives.
Are crates cushioned to protect my possessions?
One of our specialties is custom interior packaging for each container we build. Our containers and crates are lined and filled with cushioning agents to ensure secure shipping. We take dimensions, weight, fragility, mode of transport, and the destination of the shipment into consideration.
What materials do you use for lining your containers?
We use a variety of cushioning materials to prep our containers for shipping, including polyurethane, polyether, and polystyrene foams. We also use eco-friendly cushioning products, such as recycled cardboard materials.
The items I need to ship have unusual shapes. Can you really pack and ship them?
We at Craters & Freighters are experts in shipping anything that is awkward, fragile, heavy, oversized, or time sensitive. We pick up and deliver to commercial, industrial, and residential addresses.
