Crate Hire

If you are looking for cost effective Crate Hire in York, then look no further, our sister company, York Storage & Van Solutions offer very competitive rates on both long and short term Crate Hire for Office or Residential use.

Plastic Crates are ideal for both office and house re-location ensuring that their contents are fully protected and reach their destination safely.

These type of Crates when empty are stackable internally and delivered to you in this way. This saves on valuable space when space may already be at a premium whilst packing. Once filled, you can simply stack on top of each other ready for our porters to place in our van.

Plastic crates are becoming increasingly popular and are gradually replacing the traditional card board box method of packing. However, you may wish to consider a mixture of plastic Crates and Cardboard boxes to suit larger items that require a larger container. Either way, we can also arrange cardboard boxes and packing materials.


Crates are delivered to your home or office to suit your packing arrangements whether it be a few days or a week before your move.

After your move has been completed we will collect the crates allowing you time to unpack.

Our charges are based on the length of time from delivering to pick up.

You will be responsible for the Crates whilst in your care so acceptance of the crates delivered will need to be signed for by a responsible person. The form you will sign basically shows the date of delivery, the number of Crates and that you will be responsible for the cost involved in replacing any that are missing or damaged.

We cannot deliver and leave Crates unattended and without a signature. A convenient time for delivery and collection will be arranged to suit our clients availability.

If you are using our Removal Service then additional Crates, if needed, can be delivered on the day of the move. See our House Removal page by clicking here. Or for Office Removals click here.


Providing there are a minimum 20 Crates and delivery is within the inner York area then we do not charge for this service. For outer York and beyond a nominal charge will be agreed with our clients.
