Our customers say $9.00 is a typical cost for a used gaylord, and that each gaylord can be used 4-5 times before it has to be discarded.
So, it costs approximately $2.00 per use, or turn, for a used gaylord, and this doesn’t include the time and effort it takes to source good used gaylords.
A high quality reusable bulk container, similar to a gaylord in size, will cost about $250.00. You’ll need lids for stacking, and we recommend you plan on having about one fourth as many lids as containers. Lids will be about $120.00, so let’s factor the lid cost at $30.00 per container. That makes the average per container investment $280.00.
Quality reusable containers will last for 300 or more turns, so the cost per use for a reusable is approximately $.93.
Reusables cut container costs by more than 50%!
Reusables can be financed or leased at rates that can actually reduce your monthly cash outlay.
Nestable, stackable, and sustainable reusable containers are also safer for your customers and employees.
