Crate Hire Made Simple

At Direct365, we've partnered with Teacrate to offer competitive crate hire services to all types of businesses across the UK. Storage crates are popular for reorganisation, relocation or refurbishment and help to make the process as easy as possible.

Renting crates for the exact timespan you need helps to minimise costs, and the space-efficient design of our products mean they’re able to be nested when empty and stacked when full – so no clutter! Because crates are returnable packaging, they can be re-used and deliver more economic, environmental and social benefits than throw-away boxes, meaning your business can save money and boast green initiatives.

You can choose from a variety of crate types, get the exact number you want, and we’ll deliver and collect them at a time to suit you (no need to worry about storing them when they’re no longer needed). Renting is our leading commercial service, but our crates can also be available to buy, so it’s worth talking to our friendly customer care team and finding the best option for you.

Whether you’re in food processing, retail or refurbishment, our crates can help with removals and storage of all sorts of items and are specially designed to securely hold contents whilst protecting them from damage. Let us meet any demand you have – enquire online or call us today on 0800 612 9688 for more information and a free, no-obligation quote!

Get nationwide delivery as quickly as possible so you can meet any tight deadlines, including timed deliveries and same day or emergency deliveries (or choose from our click and collect option to pick up crates from our seven UK depots!). Crate washing services are also available to clean and quality-check all types of packaging, including multi-purpose crates, trays, boxes and pallets.

We’re a friend of small businesses, so you can get any number you want on stocked items rather than be tied down by minimum order quantities – and you’re guaranteed a professional and hassle-free service, because our processes are ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 accredited.
