Storage Crate Rental

Crate Hire Newcastle Gateshead

We offer flexible delivery and pick up of our crates that can be hired for as little as one week or a long-term basis.

Storage / Removal Crate Hire

Crates are great for packing files ensuring the same filing order, papers, stationery and personal effects in an office, retail or a home move; they are secure, strong and designed to protect contents from damage and stack up to 7 high, carrying a unit load of 35 kg. Crates nest up to 75% when empty, saving valuable space. We can provide lidded or unlidded crates in various sizes, though the most popular ones are 64 litres (600x365x400) and 80 litres (710x460x368).

Lidded crates can be provided to the customer with tamper-proof security tags ensuring the safe transit, confidentiality and will restrict unauthorised third-party access to the contents.

You can pack up much faster using plastic moving crates which you may find less time consuming and stressful. The convenience of hiring our crates would give you the comfort of unpacking at your leisure.

Can I buy crates from you rather than rent them?

If you are only looking to use the crates for a short period of time, renting crates is far more cost effective than buying. However, we do and can sell our removal crates if you require a longer-term solution. Call us on 0191 413 9830 to enquire about which hire crates we have for sale. Alternatively, for a more general crate hire enquiry you can use the handy domestic quote or commercial quote forms.

Are there any minimum order requirements to hiring storage crates?

No, whilst we would always encourage ordering more than you think in order to ensure safe and secure packing, we do not have a minimum number of crates you need to hire.

Do you require a deposit?

We have multiple payment options when it comes to hiring storage crates. Please contact our office directly and speak to a friendly member of our team. They will be happy to assist with any requests in regards to crate hire payments.

Can you deliver storage crates to me?

Yes we can deliver our crates and crate handling equipment to home and business customers.

What are lidded crates usually used for?

Lidded crates are most often used for office and industrial moves. The crates are particularly handy for temporary storage on commercial moves ie for books and paperwork etc while an office is getting redeveloped or decorated.
