Do you often spend a long time searching for a lost item in dusty cardboard boxes? Keeping everything neat and tidy where it’s easy to find and accessible is essential in a home as this will save you hours of rooting through boxes. Totebox plastic storage boxes are the ideal solution for your home storage needs.
Plastic Storage Boxes – Perfect for Space Saving
With storage space at a premium in most homes, and hours often spent searching for a lost item in dusty cardboard boxes, Totebox recommend plastic storage boxes as the ideal solution to achieving maximum storage in limited space.
Plastic containers provide versatile and convenient storage for many applications in the house and garage. They are less expensive than most shelving units and other traditional storage options and, with a little planning, will provide denser home storage solutions – meaning that you can pack away more stuff.
There are two standard container designs that have been adopted for home storage; stacking containers and stack-nest models. Stacking containers have vertical sides, so they have a larger internal volume than stack-nest crates which have tapering sides to facilitate nesting.
Euro Stacking Containers – Create Compact Home Storage
Totebox Euro stacking containers allow users to create modular compact storage units with smaller containers stacking 2-up (side-by-side) on larger models. This enables you to create storage themes such as ‘holiday’, ‘Christmas decorations’, ‘garden’, etc, with smaller or more fragile items packed in separate containers and then all the containers in the theme stacked into a compact storage cube. Containers are available in a choice of colours, helping you to colour code items by theme.
Plastic storage boxes with lids protect the contents from rain and dust. Lids are available for all Euro stacking containers and some models incorporate an attached hinged lid.
Euro stacking boxes are usually the best types of plastic containers for garage storage because of their compact design and wide range of sizes. Tools, nuts & bolts, plant seeds, cleaning products, etc, can be packed in appropriate size boxes.
Plastic Storage Boxes with Lids – Versatile Home Storage
Stacking & nesting containers typically incorporate an attached lid. They stack with lids closed and nest with lids open to save space when empty, so they are ideal for applications where they are not in use all the time.
Attached-lid stacking & nesting containers are popular for children’s bedroom storage, sports kits and activities such as camping. They look good, are easy to carry and fit snuggly in the car boot.
Dollies, wheeled platforms for carrying loaded crates, are a popular accessory for both stacking and stack-nest containers. Dollies take the back-ache out of carrying full crates and enable heavy loads to be effortlessly wheeled under, and out from, shelving or a workbench.
There are many types of plastic containers on the market and they vary greatly in quality. Plastic storage containers commonly sold at popular retail outlets may be relatively inexpensive but they tend to break after a short time and cannot be stacked particularly high, presenting a potential safety risk if they are carrying anything but light loads. Industrial strength plastic containers, such as those stocked by Totebox, are designed for tough storage and handling operations in factories and warehouses where they typically carry unit loads exceeding 20Kg and are stacked up to ten high. They cost a little more but should last a lifetime.
Whether tidying up toys, packing away power tools or stashing less used kitchen equipment, plastic storage boxes can help you make the most of available space in the attic, garage and kids’ bedrooms.
