How E-crates Can Save You Money

Using E-crates can save you money 

E-crates are the most economical and environmentally friendly solution for your office moving and storage needs. E-crates are reusable plastic containers that are easier to use than traditional cardboard boxes. Incorporating reusable e-crates into your business’s moving plans can make your move more environmentally friendly by reducing cardboard waste. Additionally, since you are using fewer cardboard boxes, the result is using e-crates can save you money.  Specialized e-crates offer the following advantages during an office move:



Reduce truckloads by up to 40%

  • Use e-crates and reduce your truckload needs by up to 40%. As a result, at approximately $1000 per truckload, this can add up to substantial savings.
  • The specialized e-crate and dolly system can increase truckload capacity by maximizing available vertical space, hence 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.
  • They are 100% reusable on multiple-phase moves, meaning fewer moving crates and fewer cardboard boxes.
  • Since they can be reused, cardboard boxes are unnecessary, creating less environmental impact. 

Specialized 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 crates per dolly versus three 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 increased employee satisfaction.
