Tips for hiring crates 

1. Hire crates as early as possible

This means working out how many you'll need and getting them ordered ahead of time. Don't worry, if you're not sure how many you'll need we can help. Give us a call on 0845 835 4870 and let us know what you're moving or use our crate hire calculator. Alternatively, we've got a number of set hire packages that will allow you to order enough crates for your move.

2. Don't forget your packaging supplies

As well as your hire crates or boxes, you'll also need to make sure you've got enough packaging supplies to protect your belongings as you pack them away.

Using a good amount of things like bubble wrap will help to ensure you're belongings don't get damaged in transit. Take a look at How To Pack Boxes To Minimise Breakages When Moving for more help and find out How To Take Care Of Your Moving Tote Boxes here.

3. Moving equipment will be a big help

Lugging around heavy boxes that are fully packed can not only be hard work, it can also increase the chances of picking up and injury. Putting your back out is the last thing you want to do when you're moving, so whilst proper lifting technique will certainly help, for larger crates and boxes, we'd recommend you hire moving equipment to help you move your crates around.

Extremely strong as they used to help move and store homes and businesses throughout the UK.

add_circle_outline What is the most popular storage crate to buy?

Our CH3 Standard Moving Crate is by the far most popular crate and this particular sized crate is used in 80% of all UK office moves to pack and store.

add_circle_outline Can I rent crates to move house?

Absolutely, in fact renting boxes and crates to move home is fast becoming the easiest and most popular way to pack your belongings easily.

add_circle_outline Why should I use plastic crates instead of cardboard boxes?

Plastic crates are stronger than cardboard boxes and can therefore hold more weight. They also offer better protection for your belongings, are fully stackable and reusable so they create less waste. One other great benefit of using plastic crates to move is that you do not have to build the boxes before using them, unlike cardboard moving boxes.

add_circle_outline How does the cost compare using plastic crates over cardboard boxes?

It used to be that cardboard moving boxes were the cheapest way to move your home but things have changed in recent times. People are now realising that their time also has a cost associated to it and within the last few years plastic moving crates are starting to become the preferred and most cost effective way to move your home.

The cost of cardboard has increased rapidly over the years and to buy a standard home moving pack from say Argos or Screwfix including the additional time to pack and move your home makes hiring plastic packing crates highly competitive. The crates provide the fastest way to pack your home as they do not require having to build them first or collapse the next after and recycling them. That's why more and more people are realising the many benefits by using our crate services to move their home. And the overwhelming feedback we receive on a nearly day to day basis is that they would always use plastic crates over cardboard moving boxes.

add_circle_outline What is the fastest way to pack your home?

The fastest way to pack up your home by far is by using plastic moving crates. You can pack up to five times faster with crates over cardboard boxes as you do not have to struggle building the boxes before being able to use them or need to collapse them after use and take them to a recycling centre. Our crates come clean and ready to go! As master crate hire specialists we make it easy for you to book your own crates using our unique booking online store. Just add the crates you need and tell us when and where you need them. We will then make sure you get your crates on the day you have requested. How easy is that!

I would recommend this crate hire company to anyone. They were efficient, nothing was too much trouble and the crates were delivered and collected on time.
