These guys did a great job shipping my mom's thing across the US. Everything made it safe and sound. Keith and Matt are awesome to work with and I would trust them with any of my things. I highly recommend!

Recently we used Craters and Freighters for some shipping of old oil paintings of my grandparents. We were worried that the paintings may be damaged during shipment so we wanted to use a professional company. Our friends suggested C & F because of their quality customer service and professionalism. From the beginning of our transaction till the moment the paintings where received we had not one problem. They were packaged perfectly and there was not a ding on the paintings. It is a bummer about the other review because I think these guys did a great job and we are completely satisfied! We will recommend them to anyone else that needs this type of service. Thanks Craters & Freighters for a great job!

My family contracted with Craters and Freighters in San Diego to ship a hundred year old grandfather clock from San Diego to Portland, Or. Craters and Freighters failed to properly secure and transport the clock. As a result of this, over $6000 worth of damage was done to the clock including physical damage to the clock cabinet and collapsing of the clock mechanism.

I have consulted with experts on the shipping of grandfather clocks (especially Herschede) who state that the clock was improperly shipped laying down. Grandfather clocks should be transported in an upright manner to minimize the risk of damage. Since Craters and Freighters shipped the clock laying down, significant damage occurred to the clock.

While the vast majority of the other pieces we shipped arrived intact and undamaged, the significant damage to the clock is too much to overlook. For shipping general freight, Craters and Freighters is just fine. But for valuable antiques which require a higher degree of care and expertise, I would look elsewhere.
