Default £16.96 Keter Garden Storage Box 270L

I thought these were quite cheap... Keter Hollywood Garden Plastic Storage Box with a wood look texture - Brown £16.96.

I paid triple that for the two we have now, best get some more I guess. £30, £50 anywhere else.

Homebase, reserve and collect, out of stock for home delivery.

The cheaper ones have thinner plastic and feel lighter than the dearer one. I bought the cheaper one about a year ago when they were 20 quid. They are adequate though, but there is definitely a difference in quality (I had incorrectly assumed them to be the same but as clearance lines). My plan was to install my pressure washer into it and have it permanently connected, simply turning on the water and power. But in the end I didn't bother as I feared its water tightness (and moisture in the air - corrosion to the washer mechanicals). In saying that, it has been outside for the past 10 months or so, with no ill effects to the contents currently stored in it.

They are a bargain, but are simply lighter weight versions of the dearer ones.

I will have a good look Alan when I go to collect, hopefully they will have one on display. The two Keter ones we have now are 340L, so this one is smaller at 270L. I'm hoping the price reflects the smaller size, and not the quality.

They sure do come in handy though.

Looks similar to the one i bought,good box,but very thin base,so i wouldn't pick it up to move it, if it has anything heavy inside.

All collected and built, takes only 5 mins, I bought three of them in the end.

They lock together much easier than my older Keter ones, my old ones are about 3 years old now, still ok and they don't leak; but they were impossible to build.

I have to admit, yes these ones are flimsy, but sturdy enough once built.

Bargain really!
