I use these for everything. I've gone through hundreds and the only one that has lasted is one we bought in france back in 2007. It is like brand new.

use them for all sorts of stuff. Shopping, laundry, storage. I'm still looking for some as good the French one. Morrison's ones are no good. Had some good ones from Tesco but they got done to death and a couple are used to store the camping equipment. B&Q ones are ok. Next time I need some I'm going to try the expensive ones they sell which are bigger and look more robust.

yes, I thought about some for my camping equipment, but never have been convinced they would last. I just use solid non folding ones, which have lasted for years and years

They stack as well which is helpful. Have one full of lots and pans etc and one full of food. When you unpack you can just fold them away. Useful to have in the back of the car for the shopping and great for transporting wet washing. Then they have the ironing in them by default. Just wish I could find some as good as my French one. Recently stacked three on top of each other so the puppy couldn't reach the cat bowl.

No, I don't think they're big enough, get a luton.

Good deal, but Pricing incorrect when adding to basket. Automatically adds 2 for £5 deal rather than £1.80 each. Not sure how to fix

Same thing happened with me, I'll just go into the store in the morning and get them @£1.80 as there's plenty of stock, and let them rectify the problem.

Hats off to you, a true crate connoisseur.
@jaykieron@oobie38 I discovered this as I was posting up on HUKD too; popped the workaround in the OP

My kid and I both have a habit of filling them full of washing then dropping them in front of the dryer hence chipping corners off etc. My late husband was very protective of the French one. Three years on I'm sure he would be proud that clumsy wife and teenage son haven't broken it yet.
They look like they’re ripe for putting some fruit and veg in. Then you can be like Pete running the stall. With Kath and Ian
I've got loads of these from Tesco. They're good but check each unit is complete before leaving the store. I had to take some back because they were missing bits or broken.

They're not strong enough to hold books or a pile of magazines, but good enough for DVD/CDs or clothes/shoes etc

Not strong enough for potatoes but good enough for cabbages or leeks etc
What would you use them for though?
Bought 3. Had to do 3 orders because of the 2 for £5 glitch. No biggy. Thanks OP :-)
Just a guess as you questioned the other person soz for asking.

Thanks for some advice
They might be 32 litres but if you poured 32 litres of anything into one it'd all run out through the holes.
Not used these *exact* boxes, but have almost identical ones - fine for lifting stuff straight up and down, but they don't like being pulled backwards and forwards by the handles

They're fine full to the brim for for general groceries, clothes or recycling, I'm less convinced they'd be any good for books, spuds or building materuals!
I used 3 of these to use in my car for literate (for a sales rep role) and 1 of these fell through with the weight of the books. The other 2 smashed into pieces as the weight of the books moved around as the car cornered.

The plastic is far too brittle and weak. But as ukhotdeals1 said: good for light weight use.

I cheaped out and got these from tesco (same construction, just different colours) and regretted it. If you already ordered them I wouldnt risk carrying anything valuable in them.
Reported pricing cock up on B&Q website so hope we will be able to buy these at £1.80 once they sort it......

I bought 10 of these a few years back ... they will be ok if you use a feather duster on them, other than that they fall apart very quickly ... save your money and buy some proper crates
Thanks for the heads up on quality and robustness -Will give them a wide birth
stackable?
IMO they are crap, don’t last two minutes & useless for stacking. The old ones were fairly solid & like a previous reviewer I’ve still got a few but these ‘revised’ ones are cheap, nasty & not even worth £1.80.
These are lightweight crates - use them only for lightweight stuff and they'll last for years (all of mine are still perfectly fine after around 10 years of use). However, if you use them for heavyweight stuff (books, potatoes, building materials) it should be obvious what will happen...

PS. Yes Karan4u they're stackable, either open or collapsed.
Heat from me, thanks OP. Friern Barnet branch had a stack of them.
