We offer both crates for hire and crates for sale. Our low-cost crate hire service is popular around Dublin, both for businesses moving and people moving house.
Advantages of Crates over Cardboard Boxes
- Crates are usually easier to carry than boxes - an important consideration for example if there are stairs or the van is parked a distance from the entrance.
- Hiring crates is better for the environment - boxes would have to be disposed of when used.
- Crates can withstand being loaded with heavy items without risk of the bottom falling out which can happen sometimes with cardboard boxes (usually when they are not suitable moving boxes).
- Because crates are stronger and more stackable than cardboard boxes, they be stacked higher in the removal van without risk of falling over.
- Crates are lidded so don’t need rolls of tape to fasten as would be the case with boxes.
- Crates can be stacked neatly in the new location while waiting to be unpacked.
- When empty, crates can be nested into each other so don't take up as much space as empty boxes would.
