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 Box Providers (The Good and The Bad)

March 1st, 2012

Your Friends, Neighbors or Co-workers may have used them to move. You have probably seen them in your apartment hallways or neighboring offices being loaded into moving trucks.

More than just a trend more and more people are making make the decision to skip traditional cardboard boxes when it comes time to move and choose the convenience of Reusable Moving Crates of all shapes, colors and sizes.

This growing client base has also led to a number of Vancouver Moving Box providers coming onto the scene eager to capitalize on demand. Like every other industry there are some good ones as well as bad ones out there. Moving Crate Providers come under the umbrella of the Moving Industry, unfortunately an industry with an image problem.

Since the Moving Crate Industry is still in its infancy it is largely without regulation or accepted / agreed
standards. Here are a few things to keep in mind when making the decision to go with a Moving Crate Provider;


Never under estimate the importance of a strong referral. The true believers in our product and service are the clients which have used these for their own moves and can tell you first hand what to look for and what to expect.


Does the Crate Provider have a reputable and informative website. Are the prices and details outlined and the
site sufficiently educational to help you with your decision.



Most Moving Crate Providers charge between $30-$60 for delivery within the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Make sure that you have factored in this additional cost.






Some Crate Providers actually charge a stair fee, charging you the client to bring them up your stairs since to the curb delivery is all they offer.

Cleaning Fee’s, some less reputable Crate Providers will expect you the client to clean the crates to the condition they were in at the time of delivery or face cleaning charges. Some fly by night operators don’t even clean their crates or remove the previous clients labels, Yuck!


Don’t be lured by perceived savings in opting for a shorter term rentals, such as a 1 week rental. We have found that

short term contracts such as these usually run over and are designed to generate late fees.


Is the crate provider an established industry leader. Are they BBB accredited, WCB insured? Are they participants in progressive programs such as Climate Smart and community partners involved in the local Board of Trade or Chambers of Commerce.







Having done your research now you can sit back and order your moving crates and take a few moments to relax before they arrive. Remember you still have all that stuff to pack and move.

For you next residential or commercial move remember to think outside the cardboard box and rent reusable moving crates from It’s Your Move.
