Plastic Crates are a great cost effective option for packing up your household items. They are robust, easy to carry and safe to stack and store. The following list of hints and tips should help you when packing, to help your move go smoothly and easily.
Don’t over load plastic removal crates. Smaller crates should hold heavier items like books, and the larger crate size should be for lighter, bulkier items such as bedding.
Make sure you leave space in the top of the crate so that the lids of the box can close securely, without squashing and damaging the contents within.
Keep one box aside for your essential items such as kettle, tea bags, milk, snacks, toiletries, documents, keys, money, phone etc. and make sure this crate is the last into the removers vehicle, and therefore first out.
When packing up food, ensure that all caps and screw fittings on jars and bottles are secure before packing them in crates.
Make up a list to help you to record what's in each box or container, and use sticky labels from Rentacrate to identify the contents. Make sure you put the labels either all on the ends of the crates, or on the sides. That way, when they're stacked, you can see all the labels at the same time.
It is essential that you have plenty of bubble wrap to wrap delicate and fragile items. You can get further protective equipment from our products section such as packing paper, packing tape, polythene furniture covers, floor protection and much more. Order online with nationwide delivery.
Don't place heavy items, or items with sharp corners on top of sofas, mattresses, armchairs and other upholstery. Keep your upholstered soft furnishings separate from other household items, and use protective furniture coverings from our products section.
Secure Rentacrate crates with our security seals, which keep the lids of the crates closed when being lifted, carried, transported and stored.
