I never imagined that one, these would be so easy to snap together and two, that they’d
actually stand up to my test. I opened the shipping box and found both storage boxes lying flat with an assembly sheet on top. I never even glanced at that instruction sheet!
The first box I snapped together was the medium sized 12 gallon “Classic” box. I simply pulled apart the box and the bottom fell into place. I barely pushed and the tabs snapped into their correct spaces.
Now, for the real test! Is this really going to hold a bunch of my junk?! YUP! I put over 50 VHS movies and a few rarely watched DVDs into my storage box and shut the lid. Slam bam, thank ya m’am! I could probably fit another 40-50 VHS tapes in there or a 18 pound cat. (My cat did climb inside the box, but I was laughing to hard I didn’t think about snapping a picture.) Even though this tote was half full, I was able to easily move the tote and stack it in the basement.
Each “Classic” storage box has handy dandy handles on both ends for simple lifting and moving. These boxes are available in 12, 16 and 21 gallon sizes. Packaways offers to additional sizes of storage boxes, the “Tote” and “Underbed”. They can really handle the heavier stuff and didn’t buckle at all in my tests of both the 12 and 21 gallon sizes.
Packaways are a great deal starting at only $8.75 each. Plus, they can be used over and over! The colors available are natural, cyan, magenta and green. Snazzy, huh?! The cool little white patches on the side of the storage boxes are like tiny dry erase boards! Tag them with anything you like… Summer Clothes, Christmas Decorations, Isaac’s toys, etc.
