16 April 2009

A brand new crate hire company, launched just 6 months ago, has announced exclusive contracts with three of the biggest UK relocation companies. Exclusive Move Solutions, Harrow Green and Premier Moves have appointed Pluscrates as their sole crate rental provider throughout the UK.

At the end of 2008, Premier Moves appointed Pluscrates Ltd as their new crate rental services provider. Exclusive Move Solutions and Harrow Green are the latest commercial movers to appoint the new comers, Pluscrates, their sole crate rental providers.

Managing Director, John Mitchell says ‘The rate of our growth in just 6 months trading is remarkable. Our Group MD, Neil McGuigan has made this possible having set up the crate manufacturing business Advanced Crates Ltd which has supported our growth magnificently with supplies of top quality UK manufactured crates. He has also successfully brought Northern Crates Ltd into the group which now gives us a distribution network stretching through Livingston in Scotland, Manchester, Birmingham and London.

We are delighted to be welcoming Nick Flaxman to the board of Pluscrates as our Regional Director though he will also continue to lead Northern Crates in the north west offering the levels of premium service which fits well with our service proposition and has attracted the patronage of movers such as Johnsons, BCL, John Mason, Fahey’s and Roy Trevor. No-one needs to be reminded how difficult trading is at this time. We firmly believe that the key to survival is in offering quality, value for money and not in cutting prices. Every single client welcomed to Northern Crates and Pluscrates so far have come to us paying a price premium over their previous service providers. This tells us that we are on the right track and that we are joined by like minded professionals’.
