Frequently asked questions

Express crates manufacturing facility Cromer, Sydney

Some of the questions we are asked about our crates. If you have any other queries please don’t hesitate to contact us

How strong are Express Crates?

Express crates unique clip system works on an internal rebate that stops the crate collapsing inwards on itself and the heavy-duty clips are set into rebates and are spring-loaded to stop the crate opening outwards.

The crates are engineered to be stronger than ordinary screwed or nailed crates. Back to top

Are Express Crates strong enough to stack?

Absolutely! You can stack our crates up to six crates high but we recommend a maximum height of 5.2 metres with crates of equal size.Back to top

How long does an Express Crate last?

Express crates have been assembled and disassembled 30 to 40 times and they are just as strong and easy to use as the first time. Back to top

What tools do I need to put the crates together and then pull them apart?

You don't need any tools at all to put them together other than the Easy Clip Removal Tool which we supply you with or a flat-head screwdriver.

The clips just push on and click firmly into place holding the crate securely and strongly. The crate can then be easily flat-packed after use to save on return freight costs. Back to top

What happens if my crate gets damaged in transit?

Express Crates are Aussie made, strong and tough enough to withstand any rough treatment like no other crate.

It is easy to replace any of the components on the rare occasion that they may get damaged by your freight contractor or a forklift driver as we can supply replacement sides, feet or clips. Back to top

Can the clips break?

Everything can break but we have put sample clips through vigorous torture tests and we haven't been able to break one yet. Back to top

Can I use my own freight contractor?
