Flit Crates

Flit-Crate from 5 Star…a new take on the traditional Tea Chest

5 Star Cases, Europe’s leading specialist case manufacturers have designed this useful crate to make moving house or company easier. For many years, the traditional tea chest was the choice for packing small and fragile items. The modern version of the tea chest is Flit-Crate, a durable, reusable container manufactured from high-quality plywood, finished in a hard-wearing polyurea coating.

These crates are stackable and include rubber feet which help prevent damage to wooden and tiled floors. A recessed dish is fitted to the lid, allowing for placement of packing lists and delivery details. Grab handles on all four sides aid handling and once loaded, the lid can be secured using zip-ties if required.

Flit Crates can be hired for as little as £2.50+VAT per day each, £18+VAT for 1 week, £33+VAT for 2 weeks and £63+VAT for 4 weeks.  Contact our sales team on 0845 5000 555, or e-mail sales@5star-cases.com
