When someone asks “what is kitchenCRATE?” they’re usually referring to the service.  They want to know what it is, exactly, that we do to the kitchen.

But sometimes people ask “what is the kitchenCRATE?” and for that reason, we created this blog post.

The CRATE is a large container, about 16′ long, 8′ wide and about 8′ tall.  It’s placed in front of our kitchenCRATE (and bathCRATE) projects the day before we start, and used throughout the job for material and equipment storage, storing of appliances and fixtures, display of state-mandated employment information and of course, safety/first aid equipment.

The reason behind the CRATE is simple: the last thing a customer wants during a project is to have their house cluttered with anything related to the job.  A remodel is already a stressful process, and we do our best to not only get the job completed with exceptional speed (7 days!), but make the process comfortable throughout.

Please enjoy a little photographic tour of the CRATE itself:

The CRATE! The durable steel frame and crisp, clean wrap represent the durability and simplicity of the kitchenCRATE and bathCRATE concepts. The full-height roll-up door and exceptionally low floor make loading and unloading large items a breeze.

 

The CRATE is wrapped on both sides and the back.
