I have known Kris White for many years and have used her Company since she started working for herself. This was a very easy decision for me to take, as although,  I was at the time using two large companies for crate hire, but knowing the dedication that Kris gives to providing the best possible service, this is what sets her and Metrocrate apart. At the end of the day a crate is a crate is a crate, what matters most is the service level, and I knew very well how important this is to me and my business, and I knew when Metrocrate was formed, this was where I would get the best service, and I have not been let down with that belief. I would  recommend Metrocrate with my endorsement to anyone, because I know they too would receive the best possible service.

We have been fortunate enough to have worked with Kris, the owner of Metrocrate for many years prior to this at her previous employment at Rentacrate where we found her to be very customer focussed and conscientious in dealing with our crate hire requirements. After forming Metrocrate, we had no trepidation in passing our crate hire business to her new company, Metrocrate, and were fortunate enough to be one of the first to place an order and the first to actually pay her. Over the past years, Kris has continued to be our only crate hire supplier and we would not hesitate recommending Metrocrate to anyone.
