Found 11th Feb 2014
These are £5.99 in poundstretcher and £7.50 in Wilkinsons. I've been looking around at storage boxes for a fortnight, and this is easily the best value I've found.

Found in ASDA in Stanley. They had a full pallet of them on display. Black lids only.

Does anyone know how strong these are? Do they crack easily?

I've bought this style before and I've had the odd one crack after being stacked next to the radiator and one lid got smashed when someone sat on it, but I've got some in perfect nick that must be 8 years old.

When you fill them with water it starts to act like jelly rather than the nice solid box they pretend to be with solid objects in them. That is one flood that won't be happening again any time soon.

There not really for crack, better off putting that blue meth in by Heisenberg

ooo, need to go buy some more... although the 10 i've already got is quite a few...

Hmmm wonder how many I can fit in my mini on the way home from work?!!!

Could anyone who has some give me a heads up on the dimensions please? I need a large lidded plastic box to make into a nest box for my chickens. 80 litre size is about right but this might do.

No tape measure handy, but the label says 57.5x38.5x40.5cm. There is also a slight taper to the box so it is slightly smaller ar the bottom than the top.

Thanks, That'll be plenty! Now knowing my luck I won't be able to find one......

Asda boxes are really poor quality. Very thin and brittle plastic they often crack or damage first time they are used. Spend a bit more and get the really useful ones deal posted on here. Commercial bomb proof quality for not that much more money.

As said earlier, I have some boxes exactly (bar the colour of the lid) like this which are around 8 years old. They have take loads of weight and movement.

Better boxes at a good price? Then help with a link please, because I didn't find them in my search.

Like all the asda boxes the plastic is very thin weak and brittle. We had a few of these as soon as you put anything of any weight in them they crack. Because of the fixed lids you can't stack them properly either making them far less useful, in my opinion useless.

The really useful 68l stackable boxes work out at £9 each if you buy 4 delivered free.

As well as being bigger and a better shape they are fully stackable and have removable lockable lids. Quality wise you can't even compare. Heavy duty plastic at least twice as thick. Yes they cost more. But 10 times the quality and usefulness. What's the point if they are half the price if they break the first time you use them ?

Must be store specific - not at this price in a couple of Asdas that I've checked - scanning at £7.50 and they said different stores set different prices.

It sounds like you have been unlucky: I've been stacking this style of box 5 high for years without it causing any problems.

And still no link to the product.

Use the search function on this site i gave you the information.

You can't stack these boxes properly due to the fixed folding lids.

Basically these storage boxes are rubbish they are flimsy, break easily and are not fit for purpose even storing relatively light items.

The 7 new boxes I bought for £28 are now full and stacked with the other 26 boxes I have in this style (which are between 10 and 3 years old) at mostly 5 high....and they are all still not damaged.

used 'your information'

searched 68l...err, no
searched 68 litre...err, no
searched stackable boxes...err, no

It is 2 weeks ago now...when I popped into the branch where I got mine (on Tuesday) they were either out of stock or had moved them.

Assume the deal is finished.
