Convenient Crate Rentals
Our crates are quicker and safer to use than conventional cardboard moving boxes. That's becuase our plastic crates offer high levels of protection for your items during transport and storage and they don't need to be assembled.
Our crates can also be conveniently stacked when full or neatly nested when empty so they can be kept safely out of the way during your move and will take up less space.
We understand that moving home or relocating your office can be a stressful and expensive time. That's why we offer a prompt crate delivery and collection service to suit your needs, with the option to easily extend your crate hire should you need to keep them for a little bit longer.
A highly popular option for homes, businesses and schools in Manchester and the North West, we also offer a FREE crate collection and drop off service from our Middleton depot for added flexibility.
Our crate hire depots are open 8.30am - 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. You can find your nearest Crate Hire UK depot using our handy crate deport finder.
