Green Crate Rental Service: how to use them wisely today?


Each year, almost 500 million trees die to produce corrugated cardboard boxes for United States commercial and residential consumers. Most moving supply companies ignore this glaring issue. To reduce this environmental impact, a few relocation services companies offer cardboard box buyback. We believe our green crate rental service is a viable alternative to cardboard boxes, and we believe you’ll agree.

That helps, but a large percentage of these discarded boxes still end up in landfills. At Green Van Lines, we believe there is a better way. In this situation, that better way means offering a different way. 

Rent a Green Crate Now

Rental agreements ensure that customers return their crates instead of throwing them away. That’s more efficient than a buyback. Additionally, when our customers return their crates, these containers do not go to recycling centers or landfills.

Generally, after we give each crate an appropriate amount of TLC  of course, they go to the next customer.

The bottom line is that when you take advantage of our green crate rental service, the environment and you will feel better about your relocation or storage project. And that’s what it’s all about.

Planning a Successful DIY Relocation

At Green Van Lines, we do more than sell moving supplies. Since we are a full-service relocation company, we know what it takes to execute a trouble-free move. And, we want to pass some of that knowledge on to you.

Secure Reliable Help:

Friends and family members might not be enough. This help is cheap, as it might not cost much more than a pizza. However, the best-intentioned friends and family members often do not follow through. Numerous websites help to relocate people to connect with solid helpers.


As a rule of thumb, if you have not used the item in six months, you should get rid of it. Send it to a consignment store or, better yet, give the item to someone who needs it more than you do.

Set Aside Essentials:

No one wants to sort through containers looking for high-need items, like toiletries and clothes. Think about what you do every morning and every night. Then, make sure you know where all these items are. You can imagine you go on a nice weekend and have a small suitcase ready 🙂

Start Early:

If you are not an early bird, this portion of your DIY move requires some preparation. Go to bed a little earlier for about a week prior to the move date. So, your body will fully adjust. An early start is important twelve months a year.

During the winter, you’ll want to maximize daylight hours. During the summer, especially in Dallas and Ft. Lauderdale, you want to be finished early.

Additionally, make sure you take full advantage of our green crate rental service and other available services and supplies. You do not want to be caught short.
