This deal is amazing, do you think this is a good container for moving home?

I picked up a few of these, big enough for packing away DVDs and shoes but things like toasters and games consoles are just a bit to big for then. I would say these are the same size of 6 bottles of wine. hope my bad explanation helps someone

Great for storing bottles of Gin in

They are built really well for stacking too, with the advantage of storing the inside eachother when they arent in use.
I see me going back for some more...

6 bottles of wine = 0.75l x 6 = 4.5l are you sure you were talking about the 14l boxes?

I think you would be better off with a van, but it's worth a try.

Ooo could buy these with that voucher from the Sun X)

Can anyone tell me how tall they are,hardly any of these type of boxes will fit under my bed to store stuff in as it's quite low ?

Debz, you should try underbed storage boxes, they are ideal for storing stuff under the bed

ahhhh, casm of the sark

Just a bit of warning on buying cheap plastic boxes. I bought ten from Wilco to store some items and after 12 months needed to move them and found they fell apart almost on touch. Suppose the store was too cold for the plastic and the plastic was too thin to cope. Also make sure if you are intending to place these on top of each other that you don't store anything too heavy as the tops might crack all the way down the lot of them.

Most of those are just too tall as well,I have got some plastic ones with lids but they only just fit & are a right pain to get out as they get stuck & I have to drag them out.X)

pretty flimsy, will do a job, dont take well to stacking more than 4 high, lid is particularly prone to cracking.
Worth a quid.

Then I would say these are DOUBLE that height then, I have the underbed ones and they are pretty slimline.

I bought these kind of storage quite a few times.
I think it is too small for moving home. Also normally they are quite very thin, so you will not be able to put it a heavy item.

But it is ok it you out it in the cupboards

have been called a hoarder many times so i know my boxes! i have getting onto 100 including these.
as previous poster said these store inside each other when not in use. the downside is that they are not square so not ideal for storing things like CDs, DVDs, books etc. but fine for storing things like small electrical items e.g. cables. they are thin plastic but ive had some for years and so far none have cracked. well worth £1 if you need boxes of this size with lids. if you need larger boxes look elsewhere.

I have loads of these. They hold 25 DVDs each.

I had one fall out of the loft full of Christmas decorations.
It exploded quite fantastically with shards of plastic firing in all directions.

Not saying that's a fair drop test, just that they can splinter and snap horribly when they do go. Not for the kids to play with.

Thinking of getting few for my records 45's and lp's

I have had a few of these for about 3 years now. Durable, the lid shuts ok but it is perhaps smaller than you might think. You can easily fit a adult size shoe box in it so if you are thinking of using it for small bits and pieces it's perfect.

@baalberith way too small for LPs.. would be ok for larger size shoes though.

Yes, because a cylindrical shaped object will always fill up a square one to its entirety. :p.

Envolved?

For anyone wondering how big these are, these popular folding crates are 32 litres, so the Poundland cheapie will hold about half as much

I wonder how many £1 coins this could contain ... Anyone want to ampty out a till into this and find out http://www.wsvn.com/images/news_articles/389x205/070425_gas_station_register.jpg He knew what to do but I wonder if he could one with a dodgey spring like in Open all hours!

Really ! So you are saying a 14 litres box will hold about half of a 32 litre box , thanks.

I genuinely wanted to know the size of these - width , length, if there's anybody out there, nod if you can....

Really? You seriously.. honestly thought they POURED the wine into the box? My god.. common sense, get some.

I love how worked up people get over comparisons, explanations and approximate conversions on this site!

Does anyone know how many fractions of a double-decker bus one of these boxes can hold? I have 3 of the buggers, and intend to chop them up into small parts for easier storage (obviously) so your calculations will be much appreciated.
Get to it, maths wizzes!

Picked up 3 earlier (are a dark purple colour). Dimensions are 28cm width x 40cm length x 19cm depth.

Next to an A4 sized magazine....

There's a lot of space around 6 wine bottles as they are not renound for their rectilinear shape...

14litres = 14dm^3 = 14000 cm^3 => 14000^(1/3) = 24.1cm

So if it were a cubic box (which it isn't) it would have dimensions of approx. 24cm x 24cm x 24cm. Does that help gauge the size?

Thanks Vinny
Hope my local has them , ideal for the kids toys.

Great deal only if it was available for delivery
