Packaging and Delivery

india map packing in progress moving packed goods

At Rajshree Stonez, we mainly use 20 foot containers, both open and close topped. The latter is loaded using C-clamps. Inside the containers, the granite can be stored in both A-frames or wooden crates. We use termite proof rubber wood, chemically treated for optimum results. The insides are given Styrofoam cushioning throughout to nullify any sort of movement. The corners and edges are provided with additional cushioning.
