Healthcare and Medical Equipment Packaging & Shipping in Nashville

Craters & Freighters Nashville is a leader in the packing, crating, and shipping of all kinds of healthcare devices and medical equipment.

We understand the sensitive nature of these devices, and our team has the high-quality materials and skill set to ensure they are shipped with the thorough care and protection they necessitate. 

Working with several medical providers and distributors, we cater to industry needs, never sacrificing integrity with a one-size-fits-all approach. Our comprehensive shipping and crating solutions ensure your assets stay safe through the shipping stream and arrive on time. 

Whether your items are oversized or heavy, fragile or sensitive, we know how to ensure they reach their destination in excellent condition.

Tailored Packaging

We approach the shipping of medical equipment a little differently than other shippers. We start by taking a careful look at your healthcare devices to determine the best way to pack, crate, and ship them. 

We consider size, weight, fragility, and final destination, among others, to design the best packaging, container, and transportation options to ensure safe delivery. Medical equipment is typically secured to skids, cushioned, and crated for damage-free transport.

We pull from an array of crating solutions so your shipping or storing needs are met. Our custom crating services include:

Our customization techniques surpass industry standards, offering our customers confidence while their healthcare assets are in our hands. Whether you are shipping by air, land, or sea, our custom crating team is ready to safely get your assets wherever they need to go.
