- These boxes are great for just about any purpose. They are sturdy and hold up well. I have had no trouble with the boxes and I am storing file folders in them fully packed, although I would not over fill these boxes, like stuffing so many folders inside you are stressing the box itself. Based on my opinion about the actual quality of the material used to make them, they can handle any amount up to snug so the folders come out easily yet do not shift when moved.
- Stacking has been no issue either. Filling them as described above, they can handle the weight of the other boxes.
- Stacking when storing other than file folders, weight determines how much and how high I go with the stack. I usually go three to five stacked for safety and ease of retrieval - depending on weight. It is also a good idea to fill empty spaces with loose balls of crinkled up newspaper for irregular shaped items to prevent shifting which can go off balance tearing the box and you get hurt. You can separate layers inside the box with clean packing paper then you can store a mix everyday stuff with nicer things you care more about, making use of the whole space inside the box while making it more stable being filled up to the top.
- The weight factor is a personal preference depending on how strong you are and height also depending how tall you are. I always stack heavy on bottom.
- I suggest using a box cutter to gently deepen the perforations for tearing, before you attempt to separate the lid from the box and as well on the box perforations you have to tear and fold before forming the box. I attempted to separate the perforations without a box cutter on one box (I was too lazy to go get the cutter - big mistake) and ended up tearing the box lid because it would not easily separate - and I tried everything up to putting my foot on the box to get the lid free. Anyway, just know that if you use the box cutter you will have a clean, perfectly straight edge that separates easily making assembly a snap.
-These are the same Banker Boxes I purchased at Office Depot for $34.99. Walmart storage box is a package of 10 for $14.95 and Office Depot and Staples is 12 for $34.99. I will be purchasing these from Walmart from now on. I could not believe it when I saw these same boxes for $14.95 for 10 at Walmart. It is so wonderful Walmart offers such a good price on an item that can be used every day for storing just about anything. Way to go Walmart. Thank you for making this purchase so easy eliminating all the stress of figuring out how to pay for these elsewhere.
- Hope this was useful land helps. Thank You
