B&Q Garden Storage Chest - was £20 last weekend, now £10 (in-store)

31
Found 28th Mar 2015
This is the outdoor storage chest from last weekend's "Deal" which was a good buy at £20.

In store at B&Q today, my local (Lancaster) had stacks of them left over (30+), now reduced to just £10.

Confirmed in Lancaster, Stockton-on-Tees, Derby and Basingstoke - looks like a national clearance at £10.

I went to get one of these last week. It was not good, so poorly made that the display one was split where the side were attached. There are no tools needed as it was simply a push together plastic box, but I don't think it would last even with the lightest of use.Very flimsy box and a floppy lid. I could really do with one, but this looked like a waste of money tbh.

found in Stockton-on-Tees and purchased

Judging from the previous comment, I'm guessing this can't be locked

There's a hole to allow for a lock, but why you would lock it, as a good kick and you can get into it through the plastic - it's not a safe for sure!

I can't say it's a solid safe or secure storage by any means.
But for £20 last weekend, I got somewhere to dry store my kids outside toys (non-valuable) which usually littered my conservatory.
For £10 now, it's an absolute steal - the nearest equivalent is about £27 (which won't be a lot more solid).

For the DIY nervous, it's a click construction. Including reading the instructions and working out the pieces, took my wife 4 minutes.

I would think the lock hole is intended to be used to stop young kids getting at the contents rather than from theft.

It's not going to be somewhere to store anything valuable but it's good for keeping things stored away and tidy.

Bought one today and will be taking back tomorrow, split as I was putting together!

picked one up in Derby

I got one last year. water gets in ! if it's just a storage for plastic toys probably not a problem but wouldn't advise putting anything in that you wouldn't want getting wet..... cushions and the like

Basingstoke got tons

I went to buy one last weekend. And the lid on the display model was cracked. Wouldn't even buy it for £10 cheap and flimsy

If it's like the one I bought, then as others have mentioned, it's flimsy and it will let the rain in. Mine had slots in the handles and this is where the rain was coming in. Once I taped these up, it's now bone dry It's warped a bit in the sun too as the holes where a pad lock go no longer match up and I've had to weight the 4 corners of the lid down to keep it tight. There is a padlock on but you can lift the corner up and put your hand in

I Don't keep anything of value in it (for obvious reasons) and looking to get a sturdier and better made box

Thank you need one for my plastic pots and thanks everyone for your comments I won't be putting anything in it I don't want ruining

Small and rubbish quality. No wonder they didn't sell at the supposedly special deal of £20 last weekend. Even £10 is stretching it. Put your money towards a decent one I say.

bought one last weekend for £20 and very happy with it. keeps a few toys handy meaning don't have to get everything out of the shed. had no issues with in leaking and for the price is sturdy enough even at £20 at £10 its a steal. not sure what people want or expect £20 or even £10.

Not worth £10 same offer in my local very cheap plastic would not stop anyone stealing anything as lock part is very flimsy u could pull it apart

I looked at them, might go back and buy.

Obviously at £20 or £10 they are not for secure storage of valuables.

They are ideal for making areas of your garden or garage tidy.

I have a fee bigger plastic ones in the garage, they are great and it beats having stuff just laying around!

Wife won't open them in case there is a spider waiting inside!:D

Anyone know how many litres it is? And how many bin bags you could fit inside it?

in stock at B&Q Kettering
there was a pile of 10 at 11.30
heat given

We were looking at these as storage for the garage, so inside and just to store stuff - think ok for this?

Plenty of stock in Bridgend store. Not a bad buy for £10.

at £10 it appears a bargain but you might as well throw that tenner away as due to the quality of this it will break within the year.

Got two in Mansfield Road, Notts branch. There were about 4 left as it closed.

Riverside Park, Notts had some in stock but they're on a high shelf and their fork lift is knackered apparently.
The woman said to call on Tuesday am to see if it's been fixed.

Bought one today from Lancaster, still had a pile left. They had one on display, didn't look the strongest of boxes but who cares for £10

Good unit but DON'T SIT ON IT!!!!!

.Like I did.

Bought one from B&Q Ellesmere Port yesterday - they had loads left. Not the best quality but fine for bits and pieces and keeping the garden looking a bit tidier.

Just bought from Basingstoke, still a couple of dozen in stock

what colour is it?

I'd go with Battleship Grey.

for £10 its not bad, cant really fault it at that price. will do to throw a few odds and ends in. probably need to be padlocked to stop the lid blowing open.
