The set of 4, Sterilite 45-gallon Wheeled Latch Storage box is a good value. However, the set arrived with one lid that was cracked in the top corner, probably due to the fact that there is no packing material in the very large shipping box. The lid directly below the broken lid showed stress marks and I'm certain it will also submit to cracks given enough use. The two lids below the damaged lids were fine. I'm not too worried about the one cracked lid because I don't need to have a top to one of the containers, but it's not acceptable to ship a product out in such lousy packaging.
The containers themselves were not damaged, but the plastic near the bottom corners also showed signs of stress, especially near the wheels. This is probably due to the fact that, again, the shipping box is very large and was probably placed on the bottom of other shipped items in the shipper's truck. The containers are made of a harder plastic that is not as pliable as other plastic storage containers I've used. It's more rigid and the cold weather probably does not help with the pliability quality.
Despite all the negatives, the containers are functional and the latch, wheels, and sheer size of the containers fit the purpose of what I need them for. We'll see how long they last.
