Why Use Bekins Green Crates?
- Crates make packing and unpacking quicker, easier and more cost-effective.
- Renting a crate is less expensive than purchasing a traditional cardboard box. And crates are larger, so less are required.
- Crates are faster to load, to stack on dollies, load on trucks and unload at the other end. This efficiency saves time and labor.
- Crates are sturdier and do not “crush”, regardless of how full or empty. Thus, packed items are protected and stacking does not have to be strategic to avoid an avalanche.
- Crates include sealed lids, therefore contents are not lost.
- Because plastic crates are reusable, they are more environmentally sound. Cardboard boxes require significant resources and energy to manufacture and take up valuable landfill space when discarded. Bekins Green Crates have a lifespan of more than 10 years; they can be reused hundreds of times more than single-use boxes. One crate can eliminate over 400 boxes from landfill waste.
- No assembly or taping is required and no box breakdown is needed.
- Crates maximize “cubing” and more efficiently utilize truck space.
The EPA has established that the number one way to reduce solid waste in landfills is by reuse. Bekins Green Crates are the perfect example of an innovative concept that is cost effective, more efficient, and environmentally sustainable. BEKINS provides reusable plastic crates for Office Moving and Industrial Moving as an alternative to cardboard boxes.
Compared to corrugated boxes being made and used for corresponding applications, reusable plastic containers:
- Require 39% less total energy to produce
- Produce 95% less total solid waste
- Generate 29% less total greenhouse gas emissions
Bekins Green Crates are made from 100% recyclable plastic.
