NICE CHEST ; )

Yes !

Seems a decent price for a good bit of garden storage. Will take a look in my local store in the morning

Banned

Hot

Nice deal penny much better than my B&Q deal i posted a few days ago. Heat added

Handy for no valuable stuff in the garden as wouldn't put anything of value in as I doubt it would put up much resistance for a thief.

Voted hot for price and will check my local store as be handy to keep the compost and other bits in so tidy out the way

Nice deal PF good find

Had none in B&Q Aintree (Liverpool) when I went yesterday. Asked two members of staff as well as checking the store.

I think you were checking the wrong store.
It's B&M, not B&Q.

All gone in alfreton store.. were reduced Wednesday

Heat added although sold out in the two stores I went to

A bit of padding and lining and this would make an ideal cheap alternative to a coffin

Save your money.

Bought 1 a few years ago. If you look closely there's slats in the handles and this lets the rain in. I had to tape mine up to stop the rain coming in (worked a treat).

Also, even if you padlock it, you can still lift up the corners and take things out (not too big tho).

I could go on but to sum up, save your money and go for something better

Detail may have changed since your purchase a few years ago perhaps ?!? Not knocking your comment but for £9.99? - how much did you pay ' a few years ago ' ?

Two florins and a bag of flour.

Ha, no, just my autocorrect changing it to B&Q (I'd text my wife earlier to tell her I bought the B&Q box instead of this one & my phone 'remembered' it). I did check B&M, just trying to save someone a trip to check stock there.

If you can get it should be worth it, it would be hard pressed to be worse build quality than the B&Q keter version, if I were using it for anything but storing recycling I'd have returned it, it's poor.

Had one of these for a lot of years.
Yes they are not secure, but they are perfect for storing common garden items from the elements.
I currently use mine to store wood for my fire pit. The vents on the side stop condensation building up.
A steal at this price.

am i right in saying insects could crawl into the box via these vents?
so the box is not completely sealed when its closed?

Most of these storage boxes have gaps small enough for insects etc to get in.

The one in aldi for £15 or b&q for £20 with wheels is your best bet at getting close to a sealed storage box, you could always add a rubber seal/gasket to those easily enough.

Failing that if it doesn't have to be this shape you could use a large dog food storage bin, some of those are properly sealed already, depends what you want to use it for I suppose.

None in Coventry (Gallagher, Walsgrave & Bedworth)

will rakes and brushes etc got in this?



​Nope but you can hide your coconut cake and raspberry donuts in it

Sounds a good deal but i dought many people know just how big 250L is, so does anyone have the dimensions please ?

would this be good for bike storage? or not big enough?

For the love of all things holy ..press the DEAL button & such details shall become clear...
(shall I cut up your food while i'm at it)

seems none near me in Guildford... shame, could have been good for logs...

YOU WILL BE LUCKY IF YOU CAN FIND ONE ??

None in the dunnings bridge Road store in liverpool so saves anyone a trip

Went before and they said they sold out a while back. Also seen another thread for fire pits reduced from £69.99 to £9.99 but they had none of them either.

The only thing I noticed was metal chimneas reduced from £69.99 to 39.99 and they had 3 left but that was all

none in caerphilly

None in the West Midlands.

Is there a branch stock checker at all?

T

anyone no longer want theirs - ill buy it off you! no stock where i live

Had mine for 2 years. . Great for storing kids outdoor toys and other garden bits. I too taped up the vents. Which would allow creepy crawlers in. Just don't let the kids stand on it...mine tried but luckily were warned...before they managed to break it.

None in Bedford, no week killer either which I also wanted! B&M is pretty useless at the best of times anyway.

Yes you are right about the insects, but I've never seen that as an issue for what I store in it. A bit of duct tape would soon solve it, if it was an issue though.
