Plastic Crates; A Packing Alternative to Cardboard Boxes

It’s a trend that the moving and storage industry has seen over the past 20 years; the use of hard plastic, reusable crates instead of cardboard boxes for the packing of loose items.  It is especially commonplace to see them being used for Office Relocations.  They are much easier to handle, won’t crush, can be used for letter and legal sized documents, hanging files can be placed directly on the metal runners and believe it or not, they are eco-friendly.

Whether you need 10 or 1,000, we have “Brooks Bins” available for rent.  These are our blue, logoed containers and here is some specific information on them:

  • Ergonomic carrying handles are designed for safer lifting
  • Reinforced tie holes for minimizing lid damage
