I like these. Gone through 10s in last ten years or so. They break when given abuse but are so useful for gardening, recycling or as OP says keeping things tidy as they stack very well. Cheapest ever paid is £2.50 each so hot.

These arent worth more than this price tbh, they are quite flimsy
#4
not worth 1.50 in my opinion, they break real easy and the plastic is very sharp.

#5
Useful stuff!
#6
1 use, then they fall to bits, the last a little longer if you don't fold them down.

Great for home storage. Not sure what sort of abuse other posters are giving this crate!

Sounds like you would have been better off spending 10x as much on a box that doesn't break!

Horrible crib

Great for holding nappies wipes and nappy bags :)

I keep a couple in the back of my car, they're great for stopping the shopping flying all over the place

It says it holds 32 litres? I think the holes may reduce than somewhat :D

Have used these crates for years. Only a couple burst at sides, out of about 20 (garage storage).

I don't collapse them though once put up.

I would say they are strong if not abused. Extremely handy for stacking.

I prefer the free extra large cardboard ones you get from Amazon when you buy a pen.

not sure why someone would say they are not worth it, as i been buying these exact crates from wilkos for years and they are very strong, i have these stacked in at least 5's and no breaks at all. Heat incoming

Well I nearly fitted a whole Ford 1600 crossflow engine (minus clutch)in one but it didn't hold together for long.

Voted cold. They're crap :)

I think you missed the point of these boxes (I have really useful boxes too). Like I say, I use for things like recycling and gardening. Not for storing anything other than temporary items. They do break but they are better than cardboard. They stack - unlike cardboard. They aren't as cheap as cardboard but they are cheap - I doubt anyone buys thinking they will be the storage solution for a decade+ of wear.

in store too at this price

Looked at them instore, and they looked extremely fragile with a good number already falling apart due to poor moulding.
If you got well moulded ones, and never dis/reassembled them, they'd probably be fine. (Though if that's the case what's the point of them being flat-packable??)

Instead I got 2 of these; far better made, and also a good price @ £3.

I have had one of these for 2-3 years and its great. I would avoid the silver ones I bought from tesco when these were out of stock. The silver alternative are terrible, bad moulding and fall to pieces very easily

Funny how all the bashing comes from very experienced deal posters. Is this a pattern in this site?
If we are talking about far better made then here it is much, much better made than your suggestion.
You say they looked very fragile, but what do you expect from plastic things? All plastic things, if not handled with care are fragile. Even your suggestion, drop them on the floor from 20-30cm and you will see them cracked in a sec. The drinking glass is very fragile too but if don't use properly it can break into pieces. Just like with everything, unless comes with a fault, you need to handle as it needs too. I use them for my shed, stuck them on top of each other and I store light things, shoes, toys, etc. Obviously they are not made to hold my DIY tools
FYI the one you suggest its tottally for different purposes but then again, being an experienced post dealer yourself, you knew that. Thanks!

I've got a folding basket from five years ago (from a friend when moving houses) it's all multi-colored but really strong - I've always wanted more of them - I wonder if these are it, will check tomorrow instore

Foldable is a criteria for me, good for car as good for picking up your groceries from click and collect or when the deliver home and throw everything on the hall way lol

I'm critiquing the product, not you, or your deal - no need to get so defensive!
FYI I voted hot because it's a good price, however I'd be remiss to not comment on their apparent flimsiness & possible poor quality moulding.

they are called collapsible crates for a reason. they fall to pieces if loaded with heavy shopping or other goods, I ended up using them as garden planters - on the ground.

the large plastic clear storage boxes make excellent cheap non heated propagators. the 80litre ones that were on offer a few weeks back are at least twice as tall as my proper propagators, handy when young plants still need protection and have outgrown propagator.

I think they're brilliant, I use one for my laundry basket which can then be folded up and put in the cuppoard, I use them for stacking and storing shoes in the wardrobe and my kids have even used one for a 'prison' for their baddies! :)
