These are a selection of unsorted lower quality apple crates. Ready to be brought back to life with some TLC! If you are looking for quantities of 60+, please click here.

  • As these crates have not been sorted you will find a considerable difference in their quality, colour and strength.
  • Due to the heavily reduced rate that we offer these crates for we are unable to accept any requests with regard to the appearance/quality of these crates.
  • All these wooden apple crates are approximately the same dimensions but otherwise will vary considerably in condition and appearance.
  • Some of the things you may find include slight damage, cracked slats, rough wood, traces of woodworm holes,  particularly weathered or light in colour or have loose slats. Some will only require 5 minutes with a nail and hammer to tighten slats for strength and others in the order may be perfectly useable with little work required.

They are all recently used apple crates and as such may have mud/marks on the wood. There may also be a few that are particulary dirty or have traces of paint on them. If you have any concerns about the quality or condition of these crates please contact us or see our other crate listings' if you have more specific requirements.

We do also offer crates which have been checked for quality and strength and are more uniform in appearance which you will find under the apple crates tab - they are Storage Crate Type 2-5. The higher in type you go the stronger the crates get.

Crate Size: 50cm Length x 40cm Depth x 30cm Height



All our items are genuinely used apple crates and bins, so dimensions will be approximate.



In addition to the details provided in the main description that specify the condition of the crates in this particular listing, the below will also apply as it does to all our apple crates.

As all our items are unique and made from genuinely used apple crates we cannot guarantee exact measurements. Naturally, this also leads to variation in the colour of the crates which is part of their realistic appeal. We've attached images that display some of the range in shading (from lighter to darker) so that you will have an idea of what you might expect.

These are genuine apple crates and have recently been used and as such may have faint mud/apple marks on them, pieces of wood missing or uneven, slightly split or un-level slats on the outer crate, all adding to the rustic look.



Lead Time: This item is handmade and ready to ship within 1-2 working days.

Excellent service and product! As another reviewer said I was also a little worried about the quality and strength, but the crate I received was perfect! It looks great sanded down and stained and will be perfect for the job I wanted it for! Will definitely buy from here again as price and service was great! Thank you VAC!

I ordered these crates to make Christmas presents and they are fantastic. They are perfect for making Christmas crates and I am looking forward to personalising them. The delivery was quick and they were packaged brilliantly to protect them. The price is amazing and even with delivery costs, you would be hard pushed to find the same size crate for such a reasonable price. I will definitely be ordering again when I'm ready to make some more. Thanks for the excellent customer service Vintage Apple Crates, I can't wait to share pictures with you once I'm finished.

I am absolutely delighted! Your description worried me a little as to their condition as I had chosen the cheapest but they are really wonderful, super douper crates and I am thrilled. They are to be used for all sorts of things but initially as boots and shoes storage in the utility room so will be painted and others for our produce from the garden. So thank you very much. Also, a big plus for me is that you include on the payment page a donation to an animal charity which is excellent - very into animals and the charities. So well done for that too. I will certainly spread the word and good luck to you, you deserve to do well.
