Today only, Amazon is running a great deal on 12 gallon Akro-Mils hinged lid storage containers. We reviewed these Akro-Mils totes a few years ago, and continue to use them.
I recently started buying Quantum containers instead, because my previously favored supplier – Zoro Tools – could not ship these to me undamaged. I suppose I got my wish. In the review, I mentioned being unhappy that they shipped via truck freight, but they don’t arrive intact when shipped UPS.
Anyway, the Amazon deal is on the 12 gallon, 1.62 cubic foot, 21-1/2″ long, 15″ wide, 12-1/2″ tall totes, in blue, grey, red, and green colors.
These bins are typically widely available in grey, so I opted to go for blue this time. I ordered 2 cases to get a head-start on spring cleaning and decluttering.
The sale price is $100 for (6) totes, which is a good price. The regular price via industrial supplies is typically $20 to $26 each, sometimes more.
While I could potentially get the same bins for a little cheaper at Zoro or other industrial suppliers during big coupon sales, I am more confident that I will be satisfied ordering from Amazon should any of the bins arrive damaged.
With the sale price, these come down to $16.67 per bin.
If you want to shop around, the model number is 39120.
