Clever by Design

Our crates clever design means the base of the crates fits securely onto the lid to stop it moving during transit. When they aren’t in use they are nestable to save on valuable storage space. Simply open the lids and nest them together.

Our Lidded crates will protect your items from damage. The Heavy duty, rugged and robust plastic is built for protection. If security needs to be increased, use our security seal/cable ties.

The UK-Based Crate Manufacturer

We aim to be the best crate manufacturer in the UK, and we already supply our premium quality containers to many of the leaders in the commercial relocation market. We specialise in manufacturing robust plastic stacking crates, weatherproof plastic storage crates, heavy duty plastic removal boxes and sturdy plastic lidded containers. What’s the difference between these? Well, nothing! In the UK these crates are often called different things, but the crates themselves are the same.

Occasionally our clients require open top crates (without lids), but these have fallen out of favour in the commercial relocation markets. However, we can produce them as per your requirements so get in touch, and we can make them to order. We just prefer the added security, protection, stack-ability and weatherproof aspects of the lidded crate.
