The independent voice of the global moving industry


PHS Teacrate sells materials direct to consumers online

Sep 26, 2016
PHS Teacrate has recently relaunched its packaging website to sell materials direct to consumers and small businesses.

The company says it “will be an excellent resource for home movers or one-off users to obtain commercial-quality packing materials as and when needed”.  

PHS Teacrate says that everything that is required to securely pack for removals, delivery or storage can be found on the website.  This includes plastic boxes, double-walled corrugated cardboard cartons, moving packs and packing accessories.  Moving packs contain boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, tape, and furniture and mattress protectors. PHS Teacrate is also supplying transit protection for IT equipment, mirrors and furniture; materials that would usually only be available through professional moving companies.  

Customers are able to order online for next-day delivery or collect from one of seven depots nationwide.  The company says that prices are very attractive and wherever possible, items have been manufactured with the environment in mind, using recyclable or sustainable materials.  The website has been optimized for different platforms so is easy to use by consumers via a mobile, tablet or PC.  

PHS Teacrate’s Managing Director, Gordon Philip says, “We are very pleased to be able to provide an improved website for the packaging needs of small businesses and non-commercial customers.  Moving home or premises is hard enough without the stress of having to source suitable, removals grade packing materials.  We have worked carefully to ensure that the site is easy to use and look forward to welcoming a whole new cross-section of customers to PHS Teacrate.”  

Recognising that this new competition might not be universally welcomed by UK moving companies, many of which obtain a valuable revenue stream from the sale of materials to customers, The Mover asked PHS Teacrate what it would like to say to its existing trade customers that might suffer from this new direct competition.  At the time of going to press no response has been received.
