Over the years we’ve come to realize that sometimes—and for a variety of reasons—an object can defy regular transport methods. There are certain items that can’t just be wrapped, packed, and ready to go—without first taking certain precautions. Although mindful packing, stacking, and delivery can be effective, there are always special items and valuables that absolutely cannot fit into any cookie-cutter hole—alas, certain items call for specialty crating.
At Element Moving & Storage, LLC, we’ve made specialty crating one of our premium features. For our clients who do have that special something that goes against the grain, we customize the perfect crate for it; anything to ensure its safety and security during every mile.
How do you know if specialty crating services are right for you? Here’s a quick and helpful guide:
First, We Determine Uniqueness
Our seasoned staff first takes a look at your belongings to analyze each item’s uniqueness, determining whether or not specialty crating is necessary. Typically, we offer this service for the following common items:
- Antique mirrors
- Antique or handmade furniture that cannot be easily replaced
- The fine art of any kind (paintings, sculptures, chandeliers, etc.)
- Wine collections
- Special electronic equipment
Essentially, the rarer (or more environmentally-prone) your item is, the more likely it benefits from our specialty crating service. Or, let’s put it this way: if you’re worried about moving it down the hallway, chances are you’ll benefit tremendously.
One of the many things that sets us apart from other moving companies is our customizable approach—and materials. Unlike the basic mover, our trained professionals take active steps towards ensuring every single one of your items are accounted for—and packed—safely. This means we’ll build a custom crate just for that item, including all their necessary conditions—on-site, if we have to. We won’t allow for any valuables to be half-cared for, nor neglect their special needs, while Element Moving & Storage, LLC is on your side.
Then, Make the Perfect Crate
What this means is if you have a special oil painting, for instance, we’ll create a custom crate with an interior lining of acid-free paper for its move. Have irreplaceable antiques or unique bottles of wine? We have just the right specialty crating and packaging for those, as well. When you choose Element Moving & Storage, LLC, we ensure each item is properly cared for throughout the entire move—with constant 360° professional monitoring each step of the way.
Another benefit of our specialty crating service is our ability to customize a crate for objects of virtually any size—and material. Once we get the call, we’ll prepare a custom crate in our warehouse made specifically for your items; and if we need to, we’ll build one on-site just to make sure it’s perfect. Our specialty crates vary in material depending on the item(s), but they consist mostly of:
Before anything, our professionals first make sure they know what they’re working with. That’s why we gather your items’ information prior to the move in order to make a proper assessment—and the proper materials. If need be, we’ll even send a professional to you—free of charge—to check them out in person. Either way, we’ve got everything necessary for your specialty crating needs; including storage space in our ventilated warehouse.
Some Items Are Irreplaceable
We understand moving can be an expensive ordeal; this is especially true when dealing with large items, fragile appliances, antiques, heirlooms needing TLC, or really anything that could use specialty crating. In fact, that’s why we strive to maintain competitive pricing; and we’re pleased to maintain quality with affordability. With specialized, professional handling, Element Moving & Storage, LLC has an average claims rate of less than one percent—when the average is ten percent.
More importantly, our services ensure that your valuables—which we know are priceless—are only cared for by trained professionals with experience. We treat and handle your belongings as if they were ours, and we know just who we’d want to trust our stuff with.
