FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can I get my GreenTree Crates?
Call or email us when you are planning your move and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.  Sometimes we can get the crates delivered the same day.  The more advance notice, the better we can meet your needs.  

How big is a GreenTree Crate?
Our crates are 27” long x 17” wide x 12” deep.  We deliver clean and sanitized crates ready for you to start packing…no assembly or taping required. Lids are attached AND we provide removable labels and zip ties for FREE.  Big time saver!

How Many GreenTree Crates do I need?
We have come up with packages based on the number of bedrooms/square feet and the “average” mover.  These crates hold a lot of stuff.  If you think you might need more, order a few extra crates.  Think you don’t have much – order a few less.  We will work with you to customize plans for your move.
