Benefits of Plastic Crates vs. Moving Boxes

Weatherproof Construction

Weatherproof plastic crates don’t soak up water like cardboard. Plastic crates can be put down in puddles without fear of them disintegrating. And if you store your items somewhere that might flood, crates can be a life-saver.

Built for Moving

Crates are used by nearly all professional removals companies in the UK, why? Because of the added security and protection they provide. Built for stacking, with notches on the lid to stop slipping. Plastic is strong and robust, and won’t weaken in water.

More Secure

Your valuables are, well, valuable. Keep them safe during the move. Not only are our crates strong and robust, but the lids of our crates can be locked closed with security seals, numbered security seals, or padlocks. Better safe than sorry.

Pluscrates offer a wide range of plastic moving crates to make your house move as simple and cost-effective as possible. Our products range from personal LC1 to the LMC metre-long crates that can be used for whole metre-long bookshelves. Though the most popular for house moves are the LC3 “standard crate” or the LC2 the narrower size makes it ideal for carrying up and down stairs.

Plastic Crates. Made for moving.

Our plastic moving crates are heavy duty, weatherproof and made for moving. They are designed from the ground up to keep your belongings safe during the move and in transit, with their interlocking lids, stackable design and heavy duty plastic construction they are the perfect choice and from 45p per week, it is cheaper than buying cardboard boxes! That’s why the professionals already use them!

Even when cardboard boxes are in storage they are prone to weakening if there is any damp or moisture in the air. Plastic moving crates don’t weaken the way cardboard boxes do.
