Crate Hire and Removal Skates

Crate Hire

Larchbond have a wide variety of different types of crates for hire or purchase including personal belonging crates, filing crates and IT crates as examples. Additionally specialist crates can be designed and produced to order.

If you are relocating your business or using our document archive services then hiring crates is a cost effective method of organising and packing up your files, papers, computers and other items. You may also simply use our crate hire or sale service to obtain crates for your own in-house use.

Our strong plastic storage boxes are suitable for both short or long term storage, and are also ideal for use in the transportation stage.

Our crates are stackable and sealable, and can have labels to identify their contents.

Protecting IT Equipment

Our computer crates are designed to hold a desktop pc with monitor and keyboard securely. Where required we will also wrap any electrical items in anti-static bubble wrap, which helps prevents damage caused to your equipment.

Removal Skates

We offer a range of furniture removal skates or "dollies". This product is for moving cabinets, crates and other furniture items from A to B.

They are manufactured using a FSC Plywood base, which is fitted with 4 swivel plate casters (options below).
