Tips for the best ReloCrate experience
It is a two person job to move and set up the crate, so have a friend or two ready to help you.
Set the crate up exactly where it will be picked up. Have a clear pathway between there and your home or business for easy loading. Don’t build it inside, it won’t fit out your front door!
Have a large tarp available in case of bad weather. You could also plastic wrap the crate or tape over the seams.
Fill the space. Place your largest items first and secure them as best as possible. Then fill in with bags of clothes or books or linens. Your items can jiggle around during transport, so more is better to keep things in one place.
Anything fragile or breakable should be carefully cushioned and boxed before crating. Especially fragile, valuable, and sentimental items should be moved via a different TSI solution.
Weight should be evenly distributed across the bottom of the box - do not have all the heavy items on one side!
Get insurance – it’s worth the peace of mind just in case the crate gets lost or damaged.
If you end up with extra items that won’t fit in the crate, let TSI know when you call and we can arrange for the additional items to be added to the shipment.
