Crate Hire

Fox Business Moving offer crate hire as a standalone service or as part of a Commercial Moving project.

Our crates are clean, sealable, durable, stackable when full and nest when empty.

If you need help estimating how many or what size crates you will require then one of our Team will be happy to help.

We can supply crates anywhere in the UK next day (as long as ordered before 5pm).

Barcoded crates can be supplied for projects where there is a need to keep track of crates, or assign specific crates to departments. This can help alleviate crates being lost or not returned.

Crates are a more environmentally friendly option to boxes as they are continually reused. This helps our customers reduce their carbon footprint and forms part of Fox Business Moving’s ISO 14001 accreditation.

For ease of reference we have listed below the five most sought after types of crates to assist you in choosing which would best suit your needs. However if you don’t see the type of crate you require below, please do not hesitate to contact us.
