Are you preparing for a new beginning? While spring is a great time for a fresh start, moving during this season can present the usual moving challenges. But fear not, the Teacrate team is here to help you out.

We have everything you need to help you pack up and move this spring. Whether you’re moving house, moving offices or you’re just having a spring clean, we’re here to help. In this blog, we’ll explore the versatility, cost-effectiveness, and eco-friendly advantages of crate hire, ready for your big move.

Why hire crates to simplify your move?

Hiring your packing crates can help streamline your move and keep things simple and efficient.  Forget the stress of assembling and disposing of cardboard boxes – professional packing crates offer a straightforward, hassle-free solution. Their stackable design facilitates easy organisation, ensuring a smoother packing and unpacking process. Designed to be durable, they are perfect for moving even the most fragile of items.

What’s more, when you’re finished with your move, you can return your crates ready for them to be used by someone else.

Why packing crates are so versatile for moving

Packing crates can have many uses for your move. They are available in different sizes, making them ideal for a range of items, from precious valuables to bulky belongings. Unlike traditional boxes, crates provide superior protection against weather conditions, ensuring your possessions arrive in pristine condition. Whether you're moving furniture, electronics, or delicate items, packing crates offer a flexible and reliable solution.

How much do packing crates cost to hire?

The cost of crate hire varies, offering flexibility to meet your specific needs. Factors such as the quantity of crates required and the duration of the hire influence the overall cost. A tailored approach allows you to choose the number and size of crates that align with your moving or storage requirements. Whether it's a short-term or extended hire, the pricing structure is tailored to your needs.

Tips for using packing crates for...

Whatever you’re planning this spring, we’ve got you covered with our helpful tips for making the most of your packing crates.

Your house move

  • Organise room by room: Start by packing items from one room at a time, using specific crates for each space.
  • Label clearly: Ensure your packing crates and moving boxes are labelled with their contents and destination room for efficient unpacking.
  • Protect fragile items: Use bubble wrap or packing paper to safeguard fragile items, placing them securely within the packing crates.
  • Maximise crate space: Optimise packing crate space by filling them to capacity, minimising the number of trips needed.
  • Place heavy items at the bottom: Place heavier items at the bottom of your moving boxes and crates to maintain stability during transport.
  • Create an essentials crate: Pack a separate crate with essentials for the first day, including toiletries, clothing, and important documents.

Your office move

  • Categorise office items: Sort office supplies, equipment, and documents into separate crates, ensuring an organised move.
  • Secure electronics: Wrap electronic devices in anti-static bubble wrap and pack them securely to prevent damage during transit.
  • Back-up important data: Before the move, back up crucial digital data and keep it safely stored during transit.
  • Coordinate IT relocation: Work closely with your IT department or professionals to safely relocate computer systems and servers.
  • Label office furniture: Clearly label disassembled office furniture components to facilitate quick and accurate reassembly. Use large moving boxes to make it easier to transport your furniture.

Your spring clean/declutter

  • Sort and purge: Before packing, assess items and declutter. Donate, recycle, or discard items you no longer need.
  • Seasonal organisation: Use packing crates to store seasonal items, making it easy to rotate belongings throughout the year.
  • Space-efficient storage: Crates can be stacked neatly, optimising storage space in attics, basements, or closets.
  • Label seasonal items: Clearly label crates with the season or type of items stored for easy identification, such as coats, holiday clothes, knitwear, etc.
  • Regular check-ins: Schedule regular decluttering sessions to reassess stored items, ensuring a continuously organised living space.
