Pick-Up & Delivery
Craters & Freighters of Tampa takes on the responsibility for your items to be shipped. We will come to your home, warehouse, office, storage unit, and just about any place where your item(s) are located for pick up. We also offer on-site crating for those items that require this service and can have the shipment picked up from you commercial location. We have done this many times, especially with chandeliers that have a large amount of crystal on them. There is an additional charge for on-site crating. If you do your own crating, we can pick this up for shipping, but we must inspect the contents prior to shipping your package. We can insure the shipment if your packaging meets our standards, or if it doesn't meet our packaging standards, we can insure your shipment for loss only.
We offer several delivery options to meet your budget, needs, and/or convenience. They range from curbside delivery, delivery to the door or inside your garage (still packaged), or 'white glove' delivery service through the use of one of our many Craters & Freighters throughout the country. International delivery limits us to door-to-port and door-to-door. We are not set up to offer an uncrate/inside delivery service.
