Sometimes, crating furniture can be very clumbsy. Discount furniture, like cheap Chinese goods may be knocked down into perfectly boxed units and be easy to ship. Howver, when your packing fine furniture, or high end furniture or antique furniture that is not coming from China, it can be awfuly difficult to get a perfect looking crate. But sometimes you do a get a pretty one. Here is a crate, which is mostly styrofoam and triple wall coorugation, on a 60" x 60' pallet which is picture perfect!

You can ship just about anything to anywhere in the world once you learn how to cost effectlivey pack and crate. We have shipped durables like ovens for clients and items as fragile as a dozen eggs. Here, this job is a domestic motor carrier job which went to California on a party deadline. Most of the time, a domestic job will require a full service blanket wrap delivery. Party deadlines require more speedy delivery. We can typically get a job to your door step in few days. But, you have to spend some money and time to do it properly. When you pack correctly, even the most pragile furniture will be delivered flawlessly. This picture shows a perfectly boxed mahogany dining room furniture going to California. Heavy white EPS panels are used near the foot of the crate to act as a bumber against heavy fork handling.

A first for our online store shipping to Bermuda via clients shipper SeaLion Shipping. This client visited our store and purchased a mahogany dining table and high end upholstered dining chairs. Table was packed with 1" EPS and corrugation and chairs were corrugated and placed into heavy commercial bins. Triple corrugated chair bins were strapped to a pallet and strapped down. Extra coorugation and stytrofoam was also applied to the outside of the bins as they are shrink wrapped and tied down onto the pallet.

Here is another great example of our crating and shipping capabilities. This client visited our warehouse and entrusted us to ship a high end large round dining table and uphostered dining chairs. High end furniture must be packed and shipped for worse case scenarios. We safeguard furniture for rough handling at third party warehouses, and most importantly we anticipate rough seas and leaky boats! Goods will be protected from every hazard possible. This client originaly wanted a wood crate, but eventually allowed us to ship according to our own standards. Allowing our firm to handle your goods in our own manner will be best for you in the long run. We have found that for every dollar spent on wood and labor to cut crates, is not nearly as effective as styrofoam and triple wall corrugation. Primary Freight Services, INC.
