Suitable for large or small businesses, storage totes can provide an economical and convenient way to keep dust and excess moisture from coming into contact with products, while keeping the space neat. Smaller sized totes and larger industrial storage totes are available.
Storage Totes With Lids Are Versatile
Storage totes with lids are convenient, versatile, and resistant to corrosion and rust. This makes them excellent for storing goods temporarily or permanently. They can also be used to transport products safely, and with more protection than cardboard boxes offer. In businesses where orders need to be picked, totes without lids can be used as they are easy to lift and carry. They are also reusable, making them an economical option. Most totes can be stacked, especially those with flat lid types. The HDPE plastic nesting tubs are also designed to save space by fitting neatly into each other when empty.
How Do I Decide HDPE or PP Plastic?
Both HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene) are good options, depending on the type of application and products. PP is less prone to stress cracking than HDPE as it's one of the strongest and most resistant plastics, making it a great option for heavier loads. HDPE is better able to withstand UV exposure and is a good container for handling food.
Totes Are Easy to Organize
Consider labels to apply to bins for easy identification, as well as packing and transportation instructions. Colored totes are a useful way to stay organized. Colors include gray, red, or blue. Matching or clear lids are available to purchase separately. It's also easy to fit smaller bins into the totes or to stack totes for organization and storage purposes. When using the totes for shipping purposes or storing fragile products, bubble wrap or packing filler can be used for extra protection.
