When you were a kid did you like to play with boxes? Not shoe boxes or crummy fruit boxes, but big fridge boxes or stove boxes, washing machine or tumble dryer boxes.
Good boxes in other words. You had to play very carefully though; you weren't allowed to break them. Because we had to hoard boxes in those days, just in case we had to move and we needed something to pack the chinaware in.
You can pop over this website if you want to buy crates in Sydney.
These days collecting boxes is so passé. Now we rent crates. And if you have not heard of this little phenomenon then darling, where have you been? Everyone is doing it. It's the ultimate in moving chic.
Ok, so that might be a slight exaggeration, it might still be directed more at commercial businesses than at private property or homeowners right now but it's only a matter of time before the trend reaches us. Businesses can't have all the fun, besides I'm sure that the crate companies would like to cash in on the relatively lucrative private market. A lot of people move home you know. That's a lot of cardboard out there that needs to be replaced.
The advantages of crates over cardboard boxes are enormous. First, crates are solid. They will not bend or break thus providing better security and safety to your treasured possessions.
No more worrying about your beloved books being bent all out of shape, no more worrying about the side-splitting or the bottom ripping and losing granny's priceless vases. Second, the crates seal, the rain, and the damp cannot get in, so again your books are safe from curling and discoloring, your curtains, blankets, and bedding are safe from mildew and funky smells. Third, because they are solid and sealed they are easily movable.
