Any of you guys buy milk crates online?

I'm on an organizing kick, I wanted to pick up a bunch for my truck and shop.


I searched on here, I swear there was a thread about quality ones, but I couldn't find it. I don't want to order them and then end up getting some cheap knock offs.


I was looking at this site, they seem like the real deal to me. And the best part, Made in the USA.

I use a few but not many. I am looking at organizational restructuring. LBoxx is on the list as well as other storage options. I only have one crate on the truck. They are pretty good at storing certain items, but too deep for multiple layers of supplies or tools.

I only have one in the van also, the rest are in the garage. I'll look into LBoxx, thanks for the tip.

I'm doing the same thing, getting my crap organized! I've invested in some systainers and some of the dewalt boxes.

I'd like these these crates mostly for my shop, but a few for the truck too for caulking, shims, tie downs, and a handful of other bigger things.

Not a bad idea for my storage shelves. Come to think of it I have a few in a cabinet with caulk and painting supplies. Hmmmm...this is getting me thinking...I may have to pick up a few more to see what I can do with them.

Have gotten a few of the real ones over the years, here and there. I really like them for hauling propane tanks in , work great. also for caulk in my trailer.

I have noticed a difference in quality. I wonder if these are the same quality as the real crates.
I have purchased a bunch of these. They hold up well, even used them to form the collection basin of a pondless water fall at my parents house and they are holding up well with riverstone on top. Couldn't spend the $35 a block on the aquablox.
