What's an EZRack?

For 20+ years, we have been the leader in rental, sales, recovery, and logistics management of environmentally responsible shipping and display systems for the lawn and garden industry.

Our patented product is the EZRack, and it can be put together in less than 5-minutes!

We maintain a rental base of 100,000+ racks, and service 10,000+ retail and independent garden center locations nationwide. Our rental rack program is perfect for growers who are shipping a variety of plants, live goods, or even hemp. It's also turnkey, with us recovering rented racks after you use them. Our proprietary software and full call center enable our customers to leverage reusable instead of disposable packaging.

With 10,000,000+ recoveries to date, we know what it takes to successfully ship and recover racks in the nursery & garden industry.

Benefits of Renting EZRacks

Less CapEx

Renting racks allows less upfront fixed costs, creating more predictable expenses for nurseries and eliminates recurring capital investment in racks and fleet. EZRacks are more cost-effective than rolling racks.

Lower Costs

EZRack handles pickup with rental racks for no additional fee. Choosing reusable packaging eliminates the need for retailers to incur disposal fees associated with wooden racks.

Less Waste

Reusable packaging keeps packaging out of landfills, and outsourcing the collecting is more environmentally friendly. Wooden racks are antiquated and rolling carts have less capacity than EZRacks.

Increased Capacity

Leveraging EZRack enables greater “cube out” of space on a truck. You can fit more product per load, with up to 50 racks per truck.

Reduces Product Damage

Shipping plants on the rack in which they will be displayed minimizes the handling, reducing shrinkage and damage. EZRacks are sturdy and durable for long-distance shipping and heavier plant loads.

Reduces Workload

Nurseries can focus on cultivation and allow EZRack to handle all logistics of collecting racks from retailers. We act as a critical outsourced supply chain service. You don’t have to worry about any return trips, we pick up the racks!

Faster Loading & Unloading

Get your products into customers’ hands faster. Our optimized process is streamlined and efficient to enable loading & unloading of full-size trucks in 30-minutes!

Strong National Retail Relationships

Regional nurseries can leverage our established relationships with national retailers and dealers to deliver to our approved retailer locations or to other approved growers.

Flexibility & Scaling

Renting EZRacks allows nurseries to scale up production as demand dictates without the additional costs associated with acquiring more racks. You can grow quickly without sacrificing profitability.

Seasonal & Holiday Merchandising

We offer innovative solutions for seasonal products and holiday merchandise as well. Whether it’s pumpkins, wreaths, watermelons, or something else, leverage an EZRack to display your products at point-of-purchase (POP).

Many seasonal items are traditionally shipped via disposable wooden pallets. Not only is disposal packaging wasteful to the environment and landfills, but the displays are often unattractive to consumers.

On average, retailers see sell-through increases of 20% using racks for merchandising other seasonal items alongside and leveraging the racks as endcaps.

We work closely with our packaging engineers to design modifications that increase capacity, are retail-friendly, and cost-effective.

Testimonials

“…Spring is the peak season when we conduct 80% of our business- we rent racks to flex our capacity…”

Executive
Grower

“…If I’m shipping to a big box retailer, those are absolutely going to go on EZRacks. They prefer it, and most expect it…”

Logistics & Distribution Manager
Grower

“…Sturdy, stationary metal racks allow you to stack large plants or plants of higher weight. Wheeled carts usually have much lower weight limits, and with the larger racks you can stack large pots and ornamental bushes that are bigger than some of your other products several times over without having to worry about stability…”

Founder
Nursery

“…Long distance shippers prefer to use EZRack because otherwise you have no way of getting your own racks back…”

Sales
Grower/Nursery

“…With EZRack, you can get more on the rack. It might be a more efficient use of space, which makes sense in long-haul shipping when you’re paying for the freight…”

Buyer
Retailer

“…We’ve worked towards moving away from using wood. We really want to avoid it due to price fluctuation. You don’t get the consistency that you’d have with something reusable…”
