Goodbye old shelving! Hello new crates!

Louise at The Present in Barnet sent us this great new shot of her shop complete with a stunning display of our retail crate units. She said: “Goodbye old shelving! Hello new crates! Don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVE them!”

You can see our two tone retail crate shelf display units here in our Retail Display section. just drop us a line if you’d like something similar.

Sandford Orchards Units

There’s a simple and elegant twist on our large four crate shelf unit for Sandford Orchards, the top crate is turned round to provide some on-stand storage as well as show off the logo. If not required the crate can be turned the other way as normal. Using the crate latches means the unit is easy to take apart and fit together for quick assembly at a trade show.

Charlotte at Sanford said: “We asked Plantabox to create some personalised display units for a recent trade show and they didn’t disappoint.  The apple crate storage units were the perfect solution for displaying cider and it was great to get them produced in our brand colours with such clear graphics.  We’ll definitely be back for more.

Bespoke size – just ask!

All of our units can be made to suit you, the products shown are generally made from our core components so offer the best value but we recognise that there are occasions when a specific size is required. If you need something slightly wider or shorter we are happy to help. We recently put this Half Crate Flat Shelf Unit together for Just Eat which was considerably narrower than the standard unit but was in fact still made using standard components. All you have to do is ask, drop us a line or just put a note in the special instructions in the shopping basket.

Yet another Bespoke Crate Shelving Solution

We’ve been working with the Wheat Bag Company for some time and we’re really pleased with this unique crate shelving unit that has been developed with Claire, she said: “Just a quick pic to show how I’m selling them with stock in. They all look fab.”

We are always happy to help with bespoke requests, this unit has enlarged storage space in the base, lip elements on the front of the crates and a counter top display unit on the top, all connected with our crate latches for maximum flexibility. The units get used at trade shows as well as in store and look brilliant.

Afternoon tea anyone?

The Lunch Co have recently discovered our crates and have been using them to serve afternoon tea, they think the crates are “fab” and are looking to use them even more in future. You can see all branded crates here in our events and promotions section.
