Moving Crates – Clean & Sanitized

December 1st, 2013

Renting plastic moving boxes is relatively new to Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley and like many new industries it suffers from a lack of standards, especially when it comes to hygiene.

 

As a Plastic Moving Crate pioneer, It’s Your Move continues to promote best practices and when it comes to cleanliness and product maintenance It’s Your Move leads the way.

 

Renting plastic moving boxes and moving crates is a convenience service and we feel that you the client should be burdended with cleaning the supplies once your unpacked, let alone face cleaning charges. You expect the crates to be delivered clean and ready to use without fear of allergens, dander or bed bugs.

 

It’s Your Move maintains its own professional in-house plastic moving crate washing service so that we can ensure that every plastic moving box and moving crate has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before it reaches you.

Vancouver Moving Companies Responding To Moving Crate Demand

February 1st, 2012

If you are a Vancouver or Fraser Valley Mover you have probably moved a number of clients which have packed their belongings into Reusable Moving Crates. Let me first apologize as some of these were probably heavy and overpacked by some of our mutual clients.

The reality is that Reusable Moving Crates are here to stay. As popularity for this Eco-Friendly, convenient alternative to using cardboard boxes continues to grow so do consumers asking and choosing to go with Moving Companies which offer this service.

There is an identified and growing legion of clients which have used our service and have sworn to never return to cardboard boxes. Most have probably told their friends and co-workers about how easy their move went. In short,
the market is identified and growing.

In order to stay competitive, you have considered taking steps in greening your Moving business from fuel efficient trucks to Moving Crates. Eco-Friendly packaging alternatives is a movement which is already in full swing in the Southern United States.

As an owner of a Moving Company you may have considered stocking your own inventory of plastic totes and crates and wade into the Crate Provider Business. Not to be preachy but here are a few things you may want to consider before jumping in;

If you are a moving company considering wading in on the reusable moving crate market here are a few points to consider:

START UP COST

You will need to identify your start up cost which may be more than you expected. You will need to stock a minimum of 1500 crates and accompanying products to be able to reliably service potential demand. If you are considering
approaching and applying your moving crates towards commercial contracts that number should x 3.

LABOUR COST / TIME

Multiple points of customer contact, delivery, the move day, and subsequent pick up, requires a dedicated
delivery and logistics strategy. Upon return the inventory needs to be inspected for damage and
thoroughly cleaned before put back into circulation.

WAREHOUSING

Do you have sufficient square footage to properly store and maintain your inventory. If not have you identified the further associated warehousing cost.

PRODUCT CHOICE

Not all moving crates are created equal. The right crate is the cornerstone of your business. A moving crate made of
sufficiently pliable composites to offset cold weather use breakage potential. A crate strong enough to garner sufficient churn rate to yield profitability prior to replacement. (between $19-25.00 per unit).

THE PITCH

Rather than deal with the potential headaches, risk and start up costs a growing number of Moving Companies having
identified the demand have teamed up with Moving Crate Providers and offered links to offer the service.

This allows the Moving company to deal with the moving aspect while still servicing the demand and securing potential lost business from a client looking for Moving Crates. The analogy is simple, it takes a plumber and an electrician to build a house. You wouldn’t expect one to reliably take on the others trade.

If you are a progressive, established and reputable Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley Moving Company we would love to work with you. For your next residential or commercial move remember to think outside the cardboard box and rent reusable moving crates from It’s Your Move.
