Popeye is committed to providing crating when required. Crating is a logical solution for transporting items such as fine art and sculptures, mirrors, glass or marble tops, chandeliers, antiques and taxidermy, trophies and statues. Some objects cannot be safely packed and transported without being crated on-site. With proper planning, your moving team will arrive fully equipped for on-site construction and assembly of crates for these delicate or large objects.
Your estimator will guide you through The Popeye Process of crate-building and help you determine when it is necessary. Your estimator will customize a crating plan to suit your needs. Whether your crated belongings are being transported locally, long-distance or being prepared for international shipment, we have a plan to suit you.
The delicate nature and rarity of antiques and heirlooms is reason enough for you to consider carefully the company responsible for packing your priceless objects. Because your peace of mind is priceless to us, we take great care in handling your antique possessions and heirlooms.
Your estimator will take into consideration the risk of damage to an item, its age, condition, climate and temperature conditions at the location as well as the risk of shock during handling, storage and transporting. From selecting the appropriate packing materials to protect detailing, furniture finishes and embellishments to the custom building of the crate to house these objects, we will provide you with the appropriate container and cushioning to protect against damage for safe transport of your antiques, heirlooms and one-of-a-kind objects.
