Helping teachers & staff move easier

But for a child and a teacher, I would not have a job.

School moves are stressful. Is there enough equipment for the move? Are teachers prepared to pack up their classrooms? Do we have enough labor to do the physical move? Stop worrying. School Moving Services, a division of Rentacrate, has been an expert in the school moving industry in Washington for over 30+ years. We understand that your team has limited access to resources and budgets, which makes your job even more challenging. Our team of experienced school moving experts, paired with our equipment & vetted services, allows us to detect and address these challenges before they get in the way.

Since the inception of our company, we have been forced to not only embrace change, but to pioneer it. Changing markets, disruptive technology, and an evolving customer base, we have greeted change with open arms.


While the health and safety of our team and our customers are our top priority, it is important that we continue to support the communities we operate within. Our resilience in the face of ambiguity is what sets us apart in our industry.


As we continue to move forward and serve our customers, know that we are here for you today, and we will be here for you in the future. - JOSEPH A AIELLO, PRESIDENT & CEO
