Great product, but if you use a courier who doesn't care it reflects on you. Packaging was torn, some damage (which you replaced), came sooner than promised would have preferred it came on time undamaged.

Not as sturdy as I expected
24 Sep 2018 |

The term 'industrial' suggested to me that the racking would be pretty robust and sturdy. In reality it is quite flimsy until there is some loading on the shelves. Otherwise the shelves can easily start to lift out of the uprights as none of them are actually secured, but rely upon metal tags fitting into the uprights, which stop the shelves falling down but not from lifting up. It would be better if they also had some nuts and bolts to fix the metalwork in place as well as the tags. Similarly the mdf sheets that make up the shelves are not secured in the shelf frames. More annoyingly the mdf sits proud of the metal shelf edge and so sliding the storage boxes in and out is going to wear away at the top edge of the mdf.

With the 35L storage boxes (which are of very good quality) the three boxes sitting side by side are actually wider than the opening of the frame. As a result an end box has to be pushed down in to the corners of the side uprights to get the other two onto the shelf and then cannot be taken out without either moving the other two to the right or taking the middle one off of the shelf. I wouldn't have expected this to be an issue. The shelves need to be a few centimeters longer to fit.

On the plus side, the customer service was excellent. A metal tag on one of the side panels that I received bent and broke and I was sent a replacement panel , which arrived the next day.

When assembled and loaded up the racking makes for a very efficient storage solution, I just wish that it was better designed and sturdier. I really do feel that it is overpriced for what it is, compared to sturdier racking that I've used before.

Arrived on the date specified. Well packaged, well made, and all parts present and correct. Assembly was easy and so much fun that we wished we had bought two! The assembled shelves look smart and are very sturdy. The 12 x 35 litre storage boxes are now home to a multitude of stuff and our house is clutter-free. This product would be especially useful to anyone who is in need of quality extra storage when their children return home from university.
