Very thin steel, the small casters will only work on absolutely smooth surfaces, forget them.
The drawer slides are surprisingly good when well greased up with spray grease. Wall mounted it is ok. Was £49 some years ago......every new years sale. £80 = I'm a bit neutral on the value
Low quality

Seems like nice price. Would hold the bbq tools nicely... thanks.
£76 on Halfords website on Trade 🏻
Low quality
These are ok for basic needs, fairly flimsy overall. I’m sure these are normally £79 In store?

I have one and it’s pretty basic and like with everything you get what you pay for. For the price I’m happy with it. If I needed to use one on daily basis I would invest in more expensive one but for occasional use to hold tool it’s perfect
Honestly these are terrible quality, don't fall in to the trap
The quality is extremely poor .. got one bought it home and it had dents everywhere.. went to store and opened up 3 boxes before finding a decent one...

Daying that it is the cheapest you can get for the price and holds tools ok..
Its ok for home use only for a diy’r

BE Warned a single touch of anything will dent it

I have had this for almost 9 years, for enthusiast level use, its perfectly fine
Very tin like . Flimsy

The blue type is much better. I have one
I got one for £55 years ago. Wouldn’t want to spend more than this as it might look like a Snap-on unit, but its built like a fisher price
Will look great with snapon stickers

Surely the house you bought it would be covered for dents under some kind of warranty if it was a new build or by your home insurance?

its likely their fabrication has been subject to cost-cutting measures in the 9 years since you bought it.

i.e. the quality of one of these bought today is probably not comparable to one bought nearly a decade ago

I used to play a similar model in church

Yep, they don't make em like they used to...

And be twice as strong and cost ten times more.
I went to pick this up in store last year and glad I didn't get it. Quality very poor. Flimsy. Saw one at around £130 in blue on shop floor and opted for that instead. Much better quality and worth the extra £.
The chests like these with a cabinet at the bottom aren't worth buying in my experience; ask anybody who has one and they'll tell you they wish they'd bought one with drawers all the way down. The cupboard bit just becomes yet another STORAGE SPACE OF DOOM where you'll put stuff that you don't use, and it'll stay there forever because short of getting down on your knees, it just isn't a useful space.

Probably the exact same cabinet to be honest. They go to a manufacturer in China and just get their badge stuck on it and choice of colour and options like a single drawer at the top or the 3 small ones like we have here.
Clarke and Draper have a model exactly like it at the bottom end of their ranges too - just different colours again.

Its not the same though, the doors are different

Does have a ten year warranty though...?
I found only the top tier halfords stuff was any good but quite pricy so ended up going for Kinchrome 3 stack tool chest combo for £300 from Tooled Up. Was £50 delivery and the first one was all dinged up but they sent another set quickly that was pristine. About head high and lime green with decent rollers and hydrollic top lid on top box. Very pleased with it. I really wanted the retro version which homebase sold but too££. Worth it but out of my budget.

Yeah fair enough, I found the original collection email and it was actually almost 10 years ago so fair comment!
Buy cheap but twice as the old saying goes. Not good quality

Got one for Christmas and it is certainly worth the money if not more. It's a quite a compact unit and no one would ever really say it looks or feels cheap.
I’ve had one of these for 3 years now and it’s still in perfect condition after loads of diy use. Drawers still smooth. Only glitch is the Halfords socket set trays don’t fit neatly, they’re a touch smaller. Good product at that price though
The metal use to make these boxes are very thin gauge steel you can't put a lot of heavy stuff in the drawers save your money and put it towards the Pro versions of tool boxes way better quality.
I have this. Perfectly fine for most home mechanics. Unless you want to splash out hundreds on a Snap-On set this will be enough to store your tools.
I wish I had a garage for this.
Mine arrived damaged in two places. Have contacted supplier.
