What my customers think...

"I used Craters & Freighters in 2006 to transport antique furniture from Minnesota to California. It arrived on time and in great condition at a reasonable price. I would recommend them highly"

"Great customer service. I really felt that they were trying to get me the lowest possible price.

I just moved across country. I only had a few boxes worth of stuff, so a POD or big truck moving service were not cost effective options. To make matters more complex, I was also moving a large plasma TV.

The correct way to ship a flat screen TV is to put it in a custom wooden crate (which Craters & Freighters can do!), but that would add a lot to the cost of the shipment. I spoke with Steve P. over the phone and we decided to compromise by building a custom pallet so that my TV's box (original from store) could be surrounded by my other boxes. I dropped everything off at their warehouse and they wrapped it up tightly on a pallet.

I shipped over 750 lbs for much less than the $1.2k that the second lowest option had quoted me. They were really nice about holding onto my pallet until I had gotten a new apartment to ship to. Once I gave the word to ship, though, my things arrived in less than a week (BTW, the TV survived without a scratch)!

If you are moving and have too much to mail but too little to require a whole POD, I recommend you give Craters & Freighters a call."
