Crate Hire Benefits

Did you know?


Sustainable moving

Our boxes are rented over and over during their lifespan.

Reusable moving boxes are recycled once they are no longer fit for use.


Stronger and Safer

Our plastic boxes are water-resistant. Can a cardboard box fend off a puddle? No!

Crates are durable, strong and secure. Made for moving


Pack 5x to 10x faster

Our moving boxes are ready to be packed. No assembly required

Our moving crates are designed for easy, secure stacking during transit.


Save space

Empty plastic boxes can be nested to save space when not in use.

Return the crates when you’re done, no need to store empty boxes or take them to recycle.


Save money

Crate hire saves you time and money compared to cardboard boxes.

No need to buy packaging tape, box cutters, or build the boxes.

"The best bit about Crate Hire, is having your boxes delivered and ready to go. No waiting for 80 cardboard boxes to be built. Just go go go.


"We hire our file crates, cages, skates and packing materials from They have ULEZ which makes our job a lot easier. We can send the packers by car to prep before the trucks turn up to move."

Extra Co.

"I like the fact that we get free delivery on crate hire if we order enough crates. I can add one more crate for free delivery? Done! Love it :)"



"plastic crates saves me hours on big moves"

Using crates compared to boxes is about 5x faster once you have made up the boxes ready to fill. Using plastic crates saves me hours on big moves, and I wouldn't go back to cardboard boxes. Crates just seem way more professional.

"The only option for commercial relocations"

Moving crates have been standard in the commercial relocation market for years. When moving offices, or other commercial moves, you expect the professional services, and plastic moving crates are a must.

"This is my one-stop-shop for removals companies"

We can hire moving boxes, picking cages, security-seals, and labels to have it delivered to our client's site. Then we can send a packing team to prepare the site for the move.

What is crate hire?

Crate hire is an RTP (reusable transit packaging) solution for moving home and offices. Renting crates or plastic moving boxes has been the preferred solution in the commercial relocation industry for many years. Crates are made for moving, no need to build the boxes before you start filling them, and the crate lids are made to stack, so they are more secure during transit.

How does crate hire work?

You decide on the crates you require and how long you need them. We deliver the crates to you on the date booked, you carry out your move or storage project, and then we collect the crates from you once you are done with them. Simple. If you don’t want to incur transport fees, then you are also able to collect and return them yourself to our depots.

Can I have crates delivered and collected from different addresses?

Yes absolutely! this is very common in commercial relocation, and the crates are delivered to an office, a removal company then move the offices to a new address, and then we collect the empty boxes from the new address, once the move is complete. This is the same for home moves.

How much is delivery?

We decided we needed a new way to charge delivery, so the more products you add to the basket, the cheaper delivery is, and yes you can even get FREE delivery! Each postcode in the UK has a different delivery charge, so it’s best to check the prices on our crate hire page. But we do offer delivery from free, so just add the items you need and see the price drop 🙂

The better way

If you are moving home or office, there is a better, easier, faster, more secure way, and that is by using plastic moving crates. Find out how much time and effort they can save you.
