Customer Testimonial:

You are welcome, and thank you for taking on this project. I have gotten several calls and emails from family members saying how impressed they have been with the professional packing, and service. Everything has arrived in its destination in tip-top shape! Mission accomplished! You have a great business model and I will happily refer you to anybody and everybody!

"Cynthia & KJ, just a short note to let you know the saw and accessories that you had prepared and shipped to Anchorage, AK, has arrived on May 27. My daughter-in-law, Tami, picked the crate up yesterday. This morning I had a note from my son, Martin, that it was packed very well, and looked like it had gone just across the street. Everything, that has been opened so far, appears in great shape. So, I want to thank you folks for your help, and also the great job of getting this safely to its final destination. You folks do a great job, and also are a very helpful and friendly bunch. Thank you so much, George R."

"The team at Craters and Freighters is absolutely amazing!  They packed, moved, crated, and loaded into shipping containers our entire equipment set from a 5000 sq foot optical device manufacturing facility in Bothell Washington that is being sent to Brazil.  This was an incredibly complex project involving dismantling a class 100 modular cleanroom, packing sensitive, complex processing equipment as well as basic facility infrastructure components.  The attention to detail to document and track all the discrete pieces and parts through this process to ensure safe tracking and an accurate shipping manifest is testament to their attention to detail.  It is without hesitation that I would recommend Craters to anyone, for any shipment."

"Hi Cynthia,
The shipment of the 2 server racks from Century link in Tukwilla arrived safely this morning. Larry and I inspected the hardware and on the surface everything looks to be in good shape without any visible physical damage. The packing job your guys did was excellent and we look forward to working with you in the future.
In the next week or so we looking to ship one of the racks down to New Cloud Networks in Denver Colorado. Would you be interested in providing a quote for us on this? We saved the packing materials from today’s shipment so your team shouldn’t need to bring a new packing crate with them.
Please let me know."


"Hello, Cynthia,

I just want to send a genuine Thank You to you and the C&F staff for the assistance in the shipment of the old family phonograph (victrola) to Miami, Fl.  My daughter called this morning and stated that it arrived in good condition and the delivery person was courteous and very professional.  She also stated that he was extremely careful and diligent in uncrating the victrola.  Thanks again for your help and assistance in the long distance delivery.  I will recommend Craters & Freighters to anyone desiring to ship a family heirloom."
