Crate Hire

Pretlove's crates and skates

At Pretlove's we like to give our customers options and we are pleased to be able to offer a more eco-friendly, quicker, safer way of packing.

After doing research, it was alarming to find how much cardboard is wasted every year. According to the United States Environment Protection Agency, in 2017 over 18 million tons of cardboard went into landfill.

We've been in the removals and storage business since 1904 and we are always thinking ahead. We like to lead by example in our industry, to take us a more eco-friendly future.

We think there's no debate about the benefits of hiring crates:

  • stronger – more durable, stackable,
  • no folding and no tape required, simply open and pack,
  • eco-friendly – reusable (sanitized clean after every use),
  • weatherproof,
  • can be sealed (tamper proof tags can be provided).

We do have a minimum hire period of seven days. If you require crates for longer this can be extended.

Hiring crates is as easy as getting in contact.
