On-Site Crating


On-Site Packaging and Crating Services in the Greater Charlotte Area

Craters & Freighters in Charlotte, NC offers an array of on-site packaging and crating services. Our experts can travel to your business or factory and build custom crates and skids for items that need special care. Some items are too fragile, heavy, oversized, or awkward to move without cushioning, stabilizers, or proper containerization. If that’s the case, we can come to your location.

Specialized commercial packaging is our bread and butter. Industrial crating, unique cushions and stabilizers, custom crates – there is nothing too big, too heavy, too fragile, or too awkward for us.
Bulky and awkward assets need extra attention, and our years of industry experience means we have the connections and knowledge to do the job right.

Sensitive or fragile items, assets with high value or those that need controlled environments like static-free, moisture resistance, or temperature levels, are difficult to transport or ship. This is why we come to you, bringing our equipment and high level of service to your door.

We will ensure all the security, safety, and care measures are met so you have the peace of mind that your assets get to their intended destination.

Custom Crates at Your Doorstep

We offer turnkey crating solutions for customers who need crates brought to their location. Whatever it is you need to crate, we can deliver custom containers right to your door to simplify shipping or storage.
