Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased these after being disappointed with the ones from the big box stores. Contrary from what a previous reviewer says, these are NOT simply the same thing as the $10 ones from the big box stores. (Those $10 ones are flimsy with very thin plastic bottoms and the lids will collapse if you stack much weight on them.) You get what you pay for.
I needed something to store books in and be able to stack several high. These mentioned they are rated for 65 pounds stacked five high, so I got them. Essentially, this means that the bottom box is able to support 260 pounds without collapsing. Loaded with both hardback and softback books, the ones I filled weigh only about 45 pounds, so they are not too heavy to lift and they are below the recommended weight for stacking. Perfect.
If you are storing stuffed animals or are not intending to stack anything on top, sure, go ahead and get the cheap ones. However, if you intend to store anything of consequential weight or...
Sturdy, easy to handle, great vivid green color. My company used boxes like this to move our offices a few years back. They rented them from a local company.
I've owned clear attached lid containers from big box and retail stores and there is no comparison. The movers destroyed several of them in my last move even though they were filled with lightweight stuff. This box is solid and I love the price.
These boxes are water-resistant. There are small gaps on the top of the box on either end of the interlocking lid. If the box is left in standing standing water below the lid level, you would be fine. However, if they were left in the rain, some of the water would enter the box. The box was not advertised as being waterproof and therefore shouldn't be evaluated based on a feature it's not supposed to have.
I had 6 bankers boxes of books and only used 4 of these to store the contents. I am more than pleased with the capacity, quality, and stacking.
I too ordered a set of these (6 were in my bundle). And when they arrived, the box that they were in had signs of outside damage (nothing major but perhaps if the shipping box hadn't been so THIN, it might have survived the trip better). When I opened the the box, I was surprised to find that there was NO interior packing materials or anything separating the shipping box from the actual product. That seemed kinda weird to me as I ship items all the time in my business and would never just place something in a box to be rattled around like an egg in a glass jar!
And wouldn't you know it? The very first storage tote I pulled out of the box right off the top was completely damaged beyond use! Cracked and broken like an origami puzzle that had been torn apart. The others nested beneath fared better but I still found that yet another one of the other boxes, while usable, still had a rather large crack and missing plastic from the lid. :-(
