Moving Packing Crate Rentals & Packing Materials

Plastic Packing Crate Rentals

Elephant Moving and Storage is pleased to offer plastic packing crate rentals to customers in the greater Austin, Houston and San Antonio areas.

These durable plastic crates are an earth-friendly alternative to the traditional method of packing in cardboard boxes. Our moving packing crates feature an attached lid for ease of use and the sturdy plastic body provides superior protection for your household goods.

The crates are stackable and easy to move and are cheaper than purchasing large quantities of cardboard boxes.

Moving & Packing Tips from Elephant Moving

We’ve moved families and companies for years. Year after year and move after move, we’ve found that these simple moving and packing tips will save you significant time, money and frustration.

  • Buy more moving boxes, materials, and products that you think you will need… because you will need them;
  • Create a list of each item you’re prepared to pack and move – group like things together on the list;
  • Number your moving boxes and make sure to indicate that number adjacent to each item on your list;
  • Assign each moving box a color to match a room in which it should be placed in your new home or office;
  • Wardrobe boxes are perfect for items and clothes that require hanging – and there’s extra storage space on the bottom and top for small bags of clothing (do not pack bowling balls in wardrobe boxes!);
  • Pack like items together, i.e., books, clothes, cleaning supplies;
  • Pack out-of-season clothes and hardly-used items ahead of time;
  • Use your luggage to pack clothes or other items;
  • Things to pack last: toolbox, soap, rolls of toilet paper and paper towels, one bottle of cleaning solution.
