How E-crates Can Save You Money

Using E-crates can save you money 



Reduce truckloads by up to 40%

  • Use E-crates and reduce your truckload needs by up to 40%. At approximately $1000 per truckload, this can add up to substantial savings.
  • The E-crate and dolly system increase truckload capacity by maximizing available vertical space, thereby reducing the number of truckloads required. 

25% fewer crates needed than boxes

  • E-crates are 20%-33% larger than most boxes. Therefore you use fewer cardboard boxes.
  • On multiple phase moves, they are 100% reusable, meaning fewer crates and fewer boxes.
  • Since they can be reused, cardboard boxes are not needed, which means less environmental impact. 

E-crates Can Reduce Your Labor Costs

  • Reduce overall labor costs by eliminating hand truck-up/truck-down time.
  • Reduce labor costs with increased dolly load capacity (4 E-crates per dolly versus 3 boxes per hand-truck).



Efficient and Fast

  • E-crates are lockable, increasing security for sensitive materials.
  • They are crushproof, which means no damage to packed contents.
  • Elimination of disposal costs and post-move clean-up time.
  • An increase in mobility for tight spaces resulting in overall ease of use and an increase in employee satisfaction.

Direct Delivery & Pick-up 

  • Just in time delivery and pick-up service directly to you, making it easy and convenient.
  • The crates can be delivered and picked up on a pre-determined schedule, minimizing storage costs, employee downtime, and workplace disruption.
