One of our favorite local artists, Vanessa German has two large art installations travelling the country this year. One of them “sometimes.we.cannot.be.with.our.bodies.” was last seen at Pittsburgh’s Mattress Factory Museum in 2017 and is now at The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville until July 7th. We picked-up, wrapped, and crated the ten life-size sculptures along with many ancillary pieces. We then delivered the pieces on a dedicated truck.

Export Crating Services
There are many factors to consider when packaging and crating for international shipments. Many foreign countries require that all crates made out of wood being shipped from the U.S. be heat treated to reduce the risk of pest infestation. These crates require an approved stamp known as the “bug stamp” or ISPM-15 mark, certifying the crate meets international shipping standards. However, just because heat-treated lumber is used to build a wood crate doesn’t mean that it is certified for international export.
That’s where we come in! Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship is Western Pennsylvania’s leading crater. We can assist you with all aspects of export crate building. We are the Pittsburgh area’s leading expert in packaging and crating items for international export from the US.
