Crate & Freight Moves (Interstate)
We can ship your goods to any state in the country (including AK and HI) even if we don’t drive there! Using the “crate and freight” system, we partner with highly reputable freight forwarders to coordinate transportation and delivery services.
First, your goods are wrapped and safely loaded into large wooden crates right at your home. For these “origin services” you will work directly with our company and personnel. The crates are sealed and returned to one of our facilities for processing. We then weigh each crate and find the actual net weight of your goods.
We will choose a trusted freight forwarder to coordinate the next steps in the service: transportation and delivery. We only work with freight forwarders that have a strong history of quality service with us!
Once final charges are confirmed and payment is received, a hauling company picks up your crated shipment and drives it to a delivery agent in your destination area. Your goods remain securely in the crates during transport.
The delivery agent contacts you to schedule a guaranteed delivery date. Delivery is made, with each item being placed into the room you request. Commons items requiring reassembly are serviced that same day (some exceptions may apply). The crates and debris are removed.
Why use Crate and Freight?
-Guaranteed load and delivery dates.
-Flexible to your potential need for storage at destination.
-Low claim rate.
-Reduced risk of missing items.
-Multiple insurance options.
-Competitive pricing compared to traditional van lines.
