Rated 5 out of 5 by Debi Awesome Storage!!
I love the Roughneck Storage Boxes. I have used them for over 25 yrs. They are great for storing seasonal stuff and they were really great when we were moving. They kept everything clean, dry, and in great condition. They are also great because they stack very easily-especially in the trailer. I still have some of the original ones I purchased back in the early 90's. I suggest these to everyone I know.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jule Love this!
I love the fact that I can fill these with off-season clothes, blankets, craft stuff, etc. and when they're stored in the garage, nothing gets dusty! they keep so tightly shut, I don't have to worry about anything!

I have had this container since I was in college of 1998 & I still have it to this day... So you can just imagine the wear & tare it has had on it! It is still storing all my precious memories. Now I would call that durability!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Riverhouse Best Storage Box Available
I have tried a LOT of other storage containers over the years. This is the ONLY one I will purchase now. It is very durable, stackable, and the lids interchange with other size containers. I like that it seals well enough to keep out moisture, spiders, and dirt.

I buy and use many of these storage boxes. They are sturdy, easy to stack, and, of course, waterproof. Great for safely storing things in the basement if you have an older home (which might get seepage during a heavy storm). Keeps things from getting musty smelling.
I recommended them to son and DIL for storing my granddaughter’s extra clothes and bulky toys while they were in apartment with the idea that they could be used for other kinds of storage when they got a home. The other advantage for moving the toys meant you only had to put the lid on (plus a little tape) and they were ready to move, which did happen. They also bought two more (on my suggestion) to move liquids that could leak during the move. They now are storage for sporting equipment, holding recyclables in garage, and storing outgrown clothes by size.
Rated 5 out of 5 GREAT ITEM!!!
This product is very durablity and realible. I've had most of mine for years and they've held up really well. I continue to use them to this day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by aimdogg79 Roughneck is right!!!
In the summer of 1997, I purchased a bunch of roughneck storage boxes to pack my belongings for college. They have lasted through six moves to various dorms and apartments. Since 2005, I have been using two of my 10 gal boxes as recycling bins. Every now and again, they are blown out into the street where they are bumped and/or run over by the cars on our street. Even flattened and mangled, I can pop them back into shape and they are rarely worse for wear. Today I did a scavenger hunt through the neighborhood to find the bins for our building that were blown away by the wind. The bins my upstairs neighbors used were cracked into pieces and unusable (definitely not Rubbermaid). I found mine dented, scratched, crushed and STILL useable!!!! I reshaped one and brushed the dirt off the other. I can't praise you enough for such a durable product! These containers are practically indestructable!!

I bought this container for pet food storage. It has worked well for ten yrs. This last time when I moved I found the side had split. Now I have to buy a new one. I thought this would last longer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zephyr Great Buy!
I've used these for breeding various insects over the years. They work great. The stackability could use a little bit of fixing, but otherwise they work wonderfully.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFrenchChick Great Picnic Tote
We use this size as a tote for our picnic supplies. We like to travel by car alot and the kids love to stop and have picnics when we do, so this is our go to size box for picnic supply storage. I can place everything we need for our picnic inside and it gets to the site in perfect condition. Even when DH puts the suitcases on top of it! Summer is a great time for picnics and this tote just makes it so easy to have everything organized and ready to picnic whenever we want!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFrenchChick Great for Camping
We also use these for camping. One for cooking gear and tableware, and one for dry food storage. Using one for storage of non-perishable food gets the food to our campsite in great condition. No more wet cardboard boxes, burst bags or squished bread. And if something does manage to spill, the mess is contained within the bin so our vehicle stays clean. I would highly recommend these to people who drive to their campsite or rental cabin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFrenchChick Great for travel
We use this size bin to store travel size games and small books for the kids when we travel and when we go camping. Everything stays organized and accessible. This size fits perfectly in the space between the seats in our van so both kids can reach what they need.

I planted potatoes, radishes, lettuce, celery,asparagus and onions at my duplex complex. Now the other 11 residences are doing the same....not just for sweaters anymore.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Majo Great Product
I have several of those. The oldest pair is teal green from the early 90's (back when teal was the color on everything) and the youngest pair is purple. I have used it to store things, laundry (performed its task far better than laundry baskets back then). The older ones r well used and it still continues to serve me well. Here are a couple pictures of them.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Zeena Wish I could get these on line!
We go through hundreds of these each year for our business. Both the 14 gal and the 18 gal totes. I wish I could order these on line instead of having to go to a local store to buy them.
Rated 3 out of 5 by hombe could be better
these are o.k. but the problem is that the vertical base design is slightly flawed. the idea for the top is to allow stackability, but because this is so tall, it threatens bulging inward. another problem is that not much fits neatly inside of it, and therefor waste space, instead i recommend the 14 gallons, they are more stable and fit in tidier places
the benefit of this bin is if you are storing liquids, then you are able to hold more, but i still feel that it is less stable.
Rated 5 out of 5 Our Belongings Stayed Dry and Clean
We rented a ground floor storage room to store our seasonal decorations and seasonal clothing and we put them in these Roughnecks. They stacked nicely in a small space. Over the course of a couple of years that they were stored there the sewer backed up into the storage room and a pipe in the ceiling burst. Our belongings stayed dry and safe inside. If we hadn't stored them in these our treasured decorations and expensive clothing would have been ruined. We were able to easily disinfect the outsides of the Roughnecks after the floods and many years later we are still using them with satisfaction.

I have used these organizers for many years and they are wonderful, recently I tried another brand because I could not locate this brand. Big Mistake, I have learned my lesson. NEVER STRAY FROM RUBBER MAID...
Rated 5 out of 5 by buglady I use these totes for everything! I store Christmas decorations, pet food. I used them to move kids to college and back home. I packed the kid's
"Stuff" when they moved out so it could move with them!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Krisjane Excellent for storage
I have many RoughneckAndamp;#174; Storage Box - 14 gal. They are wonderful for storing items in the garage. The storage box prevents the items from getting wet, dirty, dusty and keeps the bugs out. I live in apartment and there isn't enough room to store everything inside, so thank goodness for Rubbermaid. I recommend them to friends all the time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimbers74 31 gallon Roughneck Storage Bin
I love these Roughnecs storage bins..They are just the right size...when packed I can still carry them....and what is really great is that I can pile them on top of each other we havea small but tall attic and I am usually able to get one column of Roughnecks for each season of clothes. Works out perfect. They are so sturdy and durable . They secure firmly when closed and they stayed closed.
Rated 4 out of 5 by naturelover Very Useful Storage Box
Over the years we have probably bought 100 of these boxes for both our nonprofit wildlife organizations and personally. The pros are that they are affordable and very space efficient. The cons are that when stuffed full they do bulge out a bit making it a challenge to close the box. But if stuffed properly they fit good and tight. We live in a very buggy area so for for long-term attic storage, we duct tape the holes in the handles and duct tape the top down. Rodents can chew into them if they are determined enough so we no longer leave dog food in them.
Cons: We have not had good success with long term stacking of them as the tops are flexible and the weight of the box on top will eventually crack them. The tops do get brittle over time. And not surprisingly, the color will fade in the sun (I use some of my older boxes outside for composting and fish raising bins.) Also we sent back the gray ones as they had a tacky residue and smell to them that we weren't comfortable with and we did get our money back. We have not had that with the other colors that we have bought (light blue, dark blue, light green, dark green).
As they don't stack well, we have built shelving systems that fit one box high.
I do wish that they came with a label that you could write on as taped label don't stick too well on them and I don't like to write directly on them as we might reuse them for something else but we have resorted to Magic Marker to label them and just cross it out when we change contents.
Overall, they are our box of choice for pricing and space efficiency.

I have around 6 of these. I use them to store holiday decor and books. These are great. They're incredibly durable and great at keeping things safe from the elements.

Our family uses several of these bins to transport and store our camping equipment. They're durable, waterproof and easy to cart to and fro.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Salymsmommy Great storage
I keep medication in these in the space under my sink. It doesn't take up much room, they are easy to stick a label on, and they keep medications in one spot. Also I have confidence knowing everything inside is safe from moisture and bugs.

Great heavy duty product! Handles are good and containers stack easily. Great seal with lid on container. Have used these type of Rubbermaid storage containers for years.

We just purchased these storage containers today. They are very sturdy, easy to stack, lots of space, and a nice colour. We're definately going to buy more when we need more storage!
