Why Our Plastic Moving Crates Are Better Than Cardboard Boxes

When it comes to moving, chances are you’ve used cardboard boxes to pack up items before. Most people tend to gravitate towards using cardboard moving boxes because they allow for easy stacking of packed items, but there are now better options out there to keep your belongings safe and protected. Plastic moving containers have saved many people from undue stress and hardship, especially when moving between homes. They not only allow for easier and stress-free packing, but they provide a solution that makes it possible to compartmentalize household items effortlessly for easy sorting later on.

At Doorage, we offer storage container moving solutions that make getting your belongings from Point A to Point B easier than ever before. Doorage makes it possible to pack up and store your belongings without having to leave your home. Once you determine how much you will be storing, Doorage will deliver durable plastic moving crates at your doorstep. When you have your moving crates packed, Doorage will pick them up and bring them to one of our state-of-the-art storage facilities. When you arrive at your new home and/or are ready to have your items delivered back to you, Doorage will deliver the moving containers back to you and pick them up when you have everything unpacked.

Plastic Moving Containers: The Solution to Moving

Gone are the days of flimsy cardboard boxes — our plastic moving crates are guaranteed to keep your belongings safe and protected. Compared to cardboard boxes, plastic moving containers are more durable, eco-friendly, secure, affordable, efficient, and are available in a variety of sizes. These containers are just a small portion of what makes our door-to-door moving solutions so great. There are many advantages to using plastic moving containers for your move. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the features and benefits of our plastic storage bins that are sure to help ease any worries you may have.


Our plastic moving crates are constructed with a quality, highly durable plastic material. You can rest assured that your belongings will be safe and secure when packed inside these containers. They are water-resistant, so you can store electronics and any other important items without worry. Moreover, they are resistant to insects and mold. The lids on these plastic storage bins have an incredibly tight seal to increase durability, which strengthens the protection of your belongings. Lastly, plastic moving containers can bear much more weight than cardboard boxes and other types of storage containers — you can put heavier items inside without having to worry about the bottom breaking out.

Because our plastic storage containers are incredibly durable, they are reusable, and therefore they are environmentally-friendly. Cardboard boxes can easily become damaged while being transported and will not be able to be used again. Plus, due to the fact that it can take a little more time and effort to recycle or resell the material, tons of cardboard boxes are thrown into trash dumpsters each year rather than being properly recycled. Our everyday choices have an impact and we truly can help the environment by being more conscious of our own environmental impact. Even a simple thing like using plastic moving bins can make a difference.


At Doorage, our plastic moving bins are available in a variety of dimensions to meet your exact needs. The different sized containers we offer can be used to protect any sized household item, such as a lamp, a television, glassware and dishes, and so much more. You can choose from smaller plastic totes to large plastic bins that can store various belongings at once. To determine what size of moving containers you will need, use our storage calculator.


Moving takes enough time as it is. When you buy cardboard boxes, you will have to take the time to assemble each box before you can put anything into them. Plus, you have to tape up each box after it has been packed. Our plastic moving bins arrive to your doorstep ready to go — there is absolutely no assembly required. And, with Doorage, you don’t have to worry about transporting these bins. When they are packed and ready to go, we’ll pick them up for you. Doorage’s plastic moving crates and door-to-door moving solutions allow for a much quicker, stress-free move.


When moving between homes, moving boxes are among the last things you want to go out and spend money on. They will likely only be used once and then thrown away. Doorage’s plastic moving containers can help you save money in a couple of ways. To start, you won’t have to go out and purchase cardboard boxes on your own. Secondly, these containers don’t need to be picked up and transported by hired movers. And thirdly, you only pay for the space your container takes up while stored at our storage facility. In the long run, using our plastic storage container moving solutions can save you money.


When moving, you’d prefer that your belongings remain secure. As you know, cardboard boxes are by no means secure. If water comes into contact with the box, the contents inside could potentially be ruined. Cardboard boxes are also much easier to get torn into, which compromises the safety and security of your belongings. As mentioned above, our plastic moving containers are incredibly durable and have a tight, secure seal that will prevent any theft, damage, or other risks.

Doorage is the best concept ever! Not only are the staff and employees super nice, they are extremely accommodating and friendly.

This is by far the best way to store your stuff without having to do all the heavy lifting yourself.

Hassle-free, convenient affordable…

Hassle-free, convenient and affordable. I cannot recommend Doorage enough. Not only do they offer a great service that someone should have thought of sooner, but they are also very accommodating with it. And most importantly, my stuff was picked up when I wanted it to be, stored safely and returned when I needed it to be.

Great service, I’m spreading the word…

Set up pick up for my college student. Arrived on time, helped with odd items and hauled away in 30 minutes. Friendly, helpful and fair. Saved me time, money and the inconvenience of buying boxes, finding storage, and hauling it to the location from dorm room.

In August, I’ll set up delivery to dorm room without me picking up a thing. Great service, I’m spreading the word.

They were fast, considerate, careful…

I moved my Mom in with me and my family. She didn’t want to get rid of anything but we don’t have room for her stuff at my house so we looked into storage spaces and found Doorage.

First they came out with bins and clothing boxes. We spent the next couple of days filling the bins [and] boxes.

Doorage returned on a Sunday, the only day I was available. They took the boxes and bins, and shrink wrapped all the furniture, put protective packaging around the more important furniture, and hauled it all away.

They were fast, considerate, careful, polite, respectful and friendly. They joked around with my Mom yet were still very professional.

On top of all that, they were a little cheaper for the space we needed, and the money I saved on a Uhaul and days off of work, not to mention I barely lifted a finger in the whole ordeal, I would definitely recommend Doorage to absolutely anyone looking for storage.

Crazy cheap compared to the competition…

Easily One of the Best Moving Experiences I’ve Ever Had

I contacted Doorage to help me store my things temporarily while I was away for the summer. From pickup to final drop-off, everything was a breeze. Their eco bins save you the trouble of worrying about buying boxes and they break down (to save you money!) or wrap up any big items you might have.

I thought the website portal was very useful too. It’s an easy way to schedule pick-ups and deliveries and remember all the stuff you tossed into storage. Anytime I had a question or an issue I received a prompt response and solution to the problem! Nothing ever felt like a hassle.

Doorage is a great company to work with. I never felt like I was getting ripped off, and in fact many times the movers helped save me money. Mike and Dean are legit and made sure everything was handled smoothly and professionally! By the way, the ultimate costs ended up being crazy cheap compared to the competition. Really can’t recommend Doorage enough.

It was so quick and easy…

Doorage is a great company with great employees. They gave me a window of 7-1 and came shortly after 7 and left before 9. It was so quick and easy. They provided all the materials and took care of all the large items I had selected and even some that I forgot to add to my move. Sam was very great in helping with my billing. I am happy I selected them as the service has been fantastic.

Very professional and trustworthy…

We moved from a rental apartment to a new condo but had a gap of time before we could move into our new home.  Doorage was the perfect solution to our problem!  They dropped off bins and wardrobe boxes as scheduled.  Then, of course we underestimated how much stuff we had and they kindly dropped off more bins.  No problem!

Then they picked up all our stuff when we scheduled them, stored it and returned it on the day we moved in.  They were on-time, efficient, and worked well with both buildings to make it a smooth transition.  We didn’t have to hire movers (twice!) and find a storage unit for a short period of time.  It’s a brilliant solution for “gap coverage.”

Plus, Doorage was great to work with!  Very professional and trustworthy.  And Dean was awesome!  Efficient, friendly, and strong 🙂

Doorage definitely made a very stressful time much less stressful.  I would highly recommend Doorage to solve your storage problems!

It saved us so much time and energy…

I recently moved in with my girlfriend and we had a bunch of extra furniture and misc. stuff that we no longer had space for.  I saw an ad on Facebook for Doorage and gave them a call.  Basically you schedule a pickup date, then they come and wrap and pack all your stuff for you, put it on their bright pink trucks, and bring it to their warehouse to store until you are ready to get it delivered back.  It saved us so much time and energy not having to pick and move the stuff to a storage facility ourselves.  We had some extremely fragile stuff including an expensive glass table and I was thoroughly impressed with their team and how they packed and moved everything with such great care!  It was snowy and wet that day and the crew made sure to wear booties and put big drop clothes down to protect all of our carpet and hardwood without us even asking!  The best thing is that they only charge you for the exact square footage of your items, which after doing some research turned out to be so much cheaper that renting a big storage unit and not utilizing all the space.  And the last storage unit I rented my dresser got water damaged and it was such a pain and hassle to get reimbursed.  I’ve already told all my friends and family about Doorage and would recommend them to anyone.  Also they donate some of their profits to breast cancer research and community programs which is awesome!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process…

Amazing Customer service! We needed to have a gigantic granite dining table and 6 matching chairs delivered and stored for a few months. I contacted Doorage initially for just a quote and called them on a Saturday to schedule the big move. I was worried because we had to have this extremely heavy table moved within a few days but Doorage was able to schedule us for the following Monday!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process that my husband and I had been dreading! They brought with them all the necessary packaging supplies for a fair price and did an amazing job making sure our ridiculously heavy table was safely wrapped. They quickly and efficiently were able to get this gigantic dining table down the front porch steps! Everybody I talked to, starting from the initial phone call to all the movers were so pleasant and professional. We thought they must have been in business for a long time because of their extensive knowledge and expertise and were surprised to learn they are a newer company!

We are so thankful for their services and feel very confident that our possessions are being well taken care of considering how well each piece was taken care of at pick up! Definitely will continue to use for our storage needs!
