What are Pink Crates?
Pink Crates are a sturdy, crush proof one piece reusable plastic container specifically designed for moving needs. Our crates are environmentally friendly, eliminating the need for corrugated boxes. Pink Crates also come with their own crate dolly, making it easy for your staff to pack and move crates around your office, and cutting the cost of your moving by reducing waste, truck loads, and man hours. Pink Crates take up less space than corrugated boxes once packed. They are easy to move around with our integrated dolly vs. boxes. They won't crush or break when moving, and hold between 20-50% more capacity than a moving box. Most importantly, you won't be faced with the headache of removing and disposing of hundreds of moving boxes at the end of your move.
All Pink Crates can be secured via tamper proof sequentially numbered security ties to insure confidentiality and compliance when moving sensitive documents. Pink Crates meet compliance standards as outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), as well as Sarbanes Oxley, FACTA, Gram Leach Bailey and CMR 17 regulations.
Pink Crates are just one part of iShred's dedication to offering it's clients a services that are both sustainable and environmentally responsible. Using Pink Crates in lieu of corrugated boxes substantially reduces the amount of trees lost to the production of corrugated. In fact, for every crate used, you are saving 10 trees, not to mention electricity, water, and fuel used to manufacture corrugated. Pink Crates can also help your company earn LEED® certification points for your registered construction projects.

Did you know...
It takes 10 trees to produce enough corrugated to equal the useful life of 1 Pink Crate. A ton of corrugated boxes requires more than 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space. While decomposing, corrugated releases methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. It takes between 2000 - 10000 gallons of water to produce 1 ton of paper. Paper and cardboard account for 41% of landfill in the United States alone! Sadly, of that paper and cardboard, only 25% gets recycled. Every 40 crates used on a move saves 1 tree.
