Questions to Ask a Crating and Packing Service

If you have packages, products, or personal belongings to be moved it can be helpful to hire a packing service. A packing service can crate, pack and transport your cargo. The company will often specialize in shipping domestically or internationally while offering a variety of packing methods to ensure your belongings are safe. Here are some questions to ask a packing and shipping service provider.

  • What are your methods for packing my freight and cargo?
    Items to be transported can be packed in a variety of containers and cartons. Large wooden pallets are helpful for stacking large similarly shaped items while more fragile items will require loose fill inside of a container to ensure nothing is damaged. For items being shipped internationally, air tight containers are crucial.

  • What logistics and planning does your service offer?
    It is important to have every part of the transportation planned to ensure safe, efficient delivery of freight. The first step is proper packing followed by careful transportation and un-packing. Logistics includes pre-planning what sizes of containers are required and if custom crates should be made for certain unusually shaped or sized items.

  • What experience do you have moving specialty items?
    Crating and shipping companies often times will specialize in safely moving things that are difficult, dangerous or precarious to move such as antiques, heavy machinery, military specification crating, electronics, automobiles, glass, marble and more.

  • Do you have insurance to cover any damage to my cargo that is transported?
    Each crating and shipping company will have different levels of insurance coverage for their employees and vehicles as well as your own packages. Based on the movers insurance levels you will be able to determine if you need your own shipping insurance as well.

    When considering a crating and packing service for your company or individual needs, you'll notice that there are many service offerings out there. First off, such companies may sell moving supplies such as cartons, tape, bubble wrap, containers, and cardboard. Using plastic and wood pallets, moving professionals can transport cargo and freight from one destination to another, either locally or internationally.

    Many feature websites that outline offerings, such as product and transportation analysis, custom designed products, cushioning systems and standards, and logistics management. You may also be able to get same-day domestic air freight, door-to-door service, cargo and crate shipping insurance, and material handling. Rates range by type of customer, such as industrial or residential, and by needs, whether that involves simple crating and boxing of home furniture or an entire business relocation. Other factors include value, weight, dimensions, and final destination requirements.

    Companies operating within this business must pay close attention to detail, know how to carefully package and ship items, and have excellent communication and logistics skills. From delivery to installation, moving professionals must provide a wide range of coverage for their clients to ensure smooth transitions. Many packing and crating services are virtual, with websites that allow customers to obtain a free quote before committing. Location finders and testimonials are two other web-based services offered.

    Clients will speak with a company representative when calling a packing and crating service for freight and cargo transport. He or she should have a friendly demeanor, helping the customer find the information he or she needs.
