How Plastic Moving Crates Can Make Your Move Easier

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American moves 11 times during their lifetime, not even counting commercial moves for jobs and businesses. Moving can be a complex and even stress-inducing process. For this reason, many people turn to boxes for assistance, but a more convenient option is the plastic moving crate. These crates can make your life significantly more manageable when transporting your possessions and office supplies. The following explains how plastic moving crates can make your move easier.


We care about the environment, and we are sure you do too. That’s why we switched from using cardboard boxes to reusable plastic crates over 20 years ago. Not only are these plastic moving crates a sturdier option for moving, but they eliminate over 20,000 pounds of waste each month that would come from cardboard boxes. In the spirit of being eco-friendly, we also use reusable packing materials for delicate items as well as minimal shrink-wrap and tape.

Increased Storage Capacity

When you’ve established your business in one location, then need to pack everything up and move, you probably have a large variety of possessions to take with you. This could include office furniture, computers and monitors, files, and other typical office items. Getting all these items in cardboard boxes would create a large amount of waste, but with plastic moving crates, you can get 33% more capacity than cardboard boxes. Not only are plastic moving crates waterproof, theftproof, and crushproof, but they are also easier to pack and allow you to fit more possessions in fewer crates.

No Need for Heavy Lifting

Lifting anything heavy, such as cardboard boxes or plastic moving crates, can cause you and your employees back pain or other debilitating issues. Because of this, our policy is not to let anyone, you, your employees, or our movers, lift loaded plastic moving crates. Instead, we load crates onto dollies to be easily moved to our moving truck and then your final location.

Moving is a difficult task, and much more so without the most convenient moving options. Visit our website today to learn more about making your moving process easy with plastic moving crates.
