“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. Their crates are beautiful, their customer service is the best, their drivers are all experienced art handlers (most of them hold degrees in art), and on more than one occasion I have sought estimates from them for complicated jobs and they cover all the bases to get the job done (one job involved using a crane to move a 2k lb. sculpture over a three story house). They really are pleasure to work with. They can do just about anything and have very competitive rates.” University in Norman, OK
