History Of Plastic Crates
Crates have been used to move and store products and items for a century. The first crate used to transport goods was a tea crate used to pack and export tea leaves. The tea chest was made from wood and riveted at the edges using metal binding strips. Lead foil lined the container to help keep the tea fresh In shipping. The tea shipped to countries far and wide including the United Kingdom. The lead foil was shortly replaced with aluminium foil for health reasons.
The rigid container made for a single trip; making a handy storage box when unpacked. Tea crates became the ideal solution for storing and transporting items. Perfect for moving homes and relocating offices.
As wood became more unsustainable, the crates became plastic. This added toughness and strength to the now very reusable moving containers. The plastic used in making our containers is Polypropylene (PP). Polypropylene is a food-grade plastic used in bottle tops, car bumpers and appliances. It is durable and high impact resistant making it to be the perfect material to make a crate.
Plastic crates are weatherproof and lighter to handle than wooden crates. They are still the easiest way to move and storehouses and offices. As a result the UK’s removal industry have utilised the plastic removal crate.
