D&R Riggers & Movers specializes in custom crating and skidding for everything from single machines to full production lines. Since 1955 we’ve been skidding, packaging, and crating just about everything in sight in the rigging, industrial, and commercial industries. As a commercial mover, D&R is intimately familiar with specialized equipment of all kinds. With more than 60 years of experience in skidding and crate fabrication, we have the knowledge and expertise to get your crating job done.
Quality Construction Throughout
You can be confident when you choose D&R Riggers & Movers for your crating and skidding goals. We use 100% kiln-dried, HT (heat treated) lumber per the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) with ISPM 15 Certification. We build full crates rather than slatted crates, and the walls and tops of the crates are always constructed with 2×4’s along with ½” or ¾” plywood. Decking is a rugged 2×8 construction instead of plywood, and runners are 4×4s, 4×6s, or 6×6s, and made of hardwood or softwood, depending on the application. If you have super-heavy pieces, we can fabricate steel reinforced crates to handle them.
Crating and Skidding Services
With our ability and expertise in crating and skidding, we can build oversized crates and shipping containers for larger equipment. We use Mylar protective barrier bags with desiccant packs to seal out moisture, light, insects, and oxygen. You don’t need to worry about your machines or equipment getting wet or rusted during ocean transportation. We can provide specialties per your specs: monitoring devices and anti-shock skids. Take a look at our crating case histories to see examples of some of the crates we’ve built.
Crate Right On Your Property?
Do you have assets that, for one reason or another, need to be crated on your property? We’ll bring the crate and skidding services to you. We can crate on site. Or bring custom, made-to-fit, prefabricated crates right to your facility. Or, if you prefer, our machine riggers can load your items and transport them to our facility for in-house crating and skidding. D&R Riggers & Movers also can handle all of your crate shipping needs, both domestic and international.

“I’ve used Diggins & ROSE for our crating needs for more than a decade, from having items picked up and crated at their warehouse to having the precut crate components dropped at our dock for assembly. The work is always done in an efficient and timely manner. I would recommend them to anyone.”
