Custom Crating in MD, DC & Northern VA

Do you have a big move coming up? You might feel overwhelmed looking around your house at the items you must pack up and transport, especially when you realize how many belongings don’t fit into a standard box. That’s why, among our other packing services, Georgetown Moving and Storage Company also offers custom crating. This should help you breathe a sigh of relief if you have anything large, expensive, or delicate to transport during your upcoming move.

Our Custom Crating Services in VA, DC & VA

Wondering how we use our custom crating services to help you pack all your belongings? There are three steps:

  1. Different styles of crates and boxes have various load capacities. This is why quality custom crating services begin with choosing the best box type to match your item.
  2. Next, it’s critical to account for shock and vibration with the appropriate cushioning materials. The type selected depends on the item’s weight, fragility, and sensitivity to vibrations.
  3. Finally, the custom crate must be adequately secured within the moving truck to make sure it doesn’t slide or move any more than necessary. This critical final step is the key to ensuring your item can withstand the shipping ordeal.

Our on-site developer understands all these factors of quality custom crating and will prepare a crate for any item that requires special priority during transport.

Insuring Belongings in a Custom Crate

The process of custom crating your fragile, expensive items should protect them from any harm during the move. However, it’s still wise to obtain insurance protection for these and all your other belongings.

For your peace of mind, Georgetown Moving and Storage Company offers Basic Valuation Protection free of charge to all our customers. This provides coverage for up to $0.60 per pound with an upper limit of $50 per item.

Chances are if you’re making an effort to custom crate a belonging, it’s worth far more than $50. That’s why we encourage you to obtain Full Value Protection with coverage starting at $6 per pound for your high-value items. If anything in your move is valued at more than $100 per pound, you’ll need to fill out a special shipping document that identifies this possession as one of extraordinary value.
