Appropriate packaging of your assets determines whether they reach their destination damage free. We use a combination of dimensions, value, fragility, transport mode and final destination delivery requirements set by you. These packaging procedures may add front-end time prior to shipping, but is necessary for your items to reach their final destination damage free. You can put your complete trust in our services in the handling and delivery of anything from an office chair to a $500,000 server rack. We offer both pick up and package at our warehouse and on-site packaging if there's equipment that require the on-site service. All the trucks we use for shipping are air-ride to minimize the movement of your packaged equipment while on its journey to the final destination.
