Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well at Least It's Cheap This is a review of the 30 gal. Tote Box specifically. I am only purchasing these now since the largest size clear plastic tote box is no longer available. This item has several disadvantages in comparison. The rounded edges make it inefficient to store most items (or at least ones with straight sides). The underside of the carry handle has a bit of a rough edge and can be painful if lifting with heavy contents. When purchasing multiple of these in a stack, then tend to get stuck together and require a great deal of force to separate. I have not tried stacking these 3 or more high with heavy contents since I don't trust the design. I'm concerned the flared sides may concentrate the weight and cause a puncture in the plastic top of the bottom box of the stack. But they are cheap... You would think a 'container' store would not lose track of the fundamentals in storage box design. I would be happier if the same products stayed in stock for many years, instead of periodically changing product lines. It's just a box, people. Get it right and then stick with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Totes! We bought a bunch of these totes to replace about 60 cardboard boxes full of assorted kid/parent/grandparent items. Over time, water and moisture had passed through the cardboard and was causing damage and mold. So far, we've transferred almost all the contents of the boxes to the new totes, and they're working out really well. Although they do taper in towards the bottom, we can still fit the contents of 1 1/2 to 2 small (12 x 12 x 16) cardboard boxes inside each tote. Also, the white plastic contrasts with most spiders - especially black widows and other bugs and beetles - and we can remove the critters before picking up the totes. We're very happy with our purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! My husband has a bunch of these; they are great for storing. It is difficult to find a storage box: 1) in this big size 2) that is also black, and 3) most importantly, the sides are only slightly tapered. Other boxes have greater taper, which leads to efficient use of space. The only downside is that they are on the pricey side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for chafers Our cardboard chafer boxes where getting wet at our outdoor events. We bought the 30gal tote and the cardboard box fits perfectly with room for us to include the roll top lids. There is still a bit of space where we could end up adding the table cloths and servicing utensils.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inside or Outside The detailed spec's on the tote don't tell the whole story. You must know that the measurements listed in the spec's are of the outside edge of the top of the tote. Why is that important? Because the tote is 4 inches narrower in it's measurements of the inside bottom! Thanks for being a great store in so many ways. However more item info will make it easier to order from your online store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made Moving Easy I recently moved across the county and bought several of these totes. They were durable and I was able to pack quite a bit inside. The white did get scuffed up, but I don't plan on having them out for others to see so it didn't bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a box to hold stuff...and it does. I needed a box or something box-like to hold stuff. I originally went to a store (not the container store) and found the boxes there to be insufficiently boxy for my needs; you can imagine my dismay. I don't know why people think you can just throw something together with four sides, a bottom and a lid and sell it as a box for storing stuff. The Tote box that I purchased is light (until you fill it), white (until you get it messy) and upon storage, outta sight. I highly recommend it for all your box related needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recommend I like these for some things, but there are 2 big cons: 1. the lids can be really hard to remove and 2. you loose SO much space inside because of the built-in indentations on ALL 4 sides of the box! So the inside is much smaller than you'd think when looking at it, or for how much shelf space it takes up. I've ended up returning quite a few when they didn't hold what I thought they would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should Ever had two floods in your basement in 1 month? Well, i did and learned that these handy storage bins work better than cardboard boxes! Flood one I lost about half of my things. Flood two, with the storage bins, I lost nothing. Thanks!

Community Q&A

Would these be acceptable to store food items (bulk chocolate) ?

My concern; smell that might affect food items from plastic and that the lid fits tight enough to keep out insects and rodents
Asked by: chocolatelover123
I haven't noticed an odor from the plastic. The lids do not have an airtight seal, but when the totes are stacked, the weight from the top totes compresses the lids on the lower totes a bit.

Weight limits

Hi. How much weight can a container bear if stacked on top of another container? Thinking of using these bins to stack 2 small a/c units over winter. If these bins aren’t a good choice, can you recommend others? Many thanks.
Asked by: eleean
For the long-term storage of the most sensitive items, we recommend our Weathertight Totes. They're made from ultra-clear polypropylene and are extremely durable. They are stackable and should be able to support 30 pounds of evenly distributed weight without a problem.
