Packaging Services and Reusable Crates

Since we launched in 1978, MSS Precision Crating has built up a well of transportation solutions for our global patrons. Utilizing years of time-tested methods, a task force of exclusively trained personnel and the latest technologies, we continually aim to set the bar higher with safe, efficient, innovative and affordable shipping and packaging services. 

Recently, one of our clients in Delaware employed our team to engineer a custom packaging solution for the long-term storage of a private collection of antique swords, daggers and rifles. We were thrilled to be entrusted with this unique shipment. 

Challenge 
The diverse collection of highly valuable and historical guns, daggers and swords to be packaged dated back from the Viking era to the Revolutionary War. The client was putting his collection in storage, and the items had to be packaged in such a way that their integrity was not compromised over an extended period. Additionally, it was important for the collection to be easily categorized and inventoried so the client would know where each exact piece was stored.

Description
Based on the client’s specifications, the project required both designing a packaging solution that protected the collection from external impairment, and also creating a highly organized labeling system to make sure that each piece could be easily found. Again, the extensive collection contained weaponry, including daggers, cavalry swords and muzzle loading rifles with intricate parts. 

Planning
The MSS team met with the client on-site to discuss how to stabilize the collection for long-term storage. It was imperative that the client be clear about the exact details of how his prized collection would be stored. In an effort to ease his packaging and shipping concerns, our team laid out the project methods in a precise, easy-to-digest manner. Our team also took an extensive survey of the collection and measured each item to establish a customized packaging solution. We then implemented that solution, individually wrapping each piece in ventilated cushioning and Mylar bagging. The crates, containing individual slots for each item, also featured labels on the outside for easy cataloguing. 

Results
MSS successfully developed safe and secure packaging services, including visible and precise labeling, for our client’s valuable armaments collection.
