Manpower Movers, a San Diego moving company, now offers a free, Eco-Crates program to help customers save money on cardboard boxes. So what exactly are Eco-Crates?

Eco-Crates are durable, reusable plastic crates that measure about three feet long, by two feet wide and two feet deep. So they hold more than the average size cardboard box. Eco-Crates are rigid and won’t bend or collapse while carrying them from the truck to the residence or office. Plus, they are conveniently stackable. Best of all Manpower Movers’ FREE Eco-Crate service will save customers $100 and $200 in cardboard box purchases on their next move.

Manpower Movers San Diego, keeps about 700 of the crates in stock — to make them available to their customers free of charge. The company says that the average moving customer uses about 30 of these convenient, environmentally friendly crates, instead of the traditional method, that requires 40 or more cardboard boxes. Manpower Movers is one of the only San Diego Moving & Storage companies offering the free Eco-Crate Service.

When customers request the Eco-Crate Service, Manpower Movers drop off their crates about seven days before their scheduled moving date. It not only saves them a lot of money, but it also saves them the stress and hassle of tracking down and transporting the 30 to 40 cardboard boxes they would need to pack their household belongings. After the customer has emptied their Eco-Crates in their new location, Manpower Movers retrieves the crates free of charge. The Eco-Crates program is efficient for Manpower Movers, too, saving the company from having to stock and discard thousands of cardboard boxes each month.

Prior to making the move to Eco-Crates, Manpower was sending about 120 cardboard boxes per day — about 3600 per month — either to a recycling center or into the trash bin. The Eco-Crate program is a rare example of a planet-friendly service that reduces waste, saves customers money and doesn’t require any government subsidies.
