Garage / Workshop drawers & rollcabs

I'm after some half decent garage drawers to keep bits and pieces in. Does anyone have any they recommend?

As it stands it's a toss up between these;
SGS
US Pro

No strap on please, I'm not made of money.

Cheers

“I’m looking at spending £800 on a drawer to keep bits and pieces in”

“I’m not made of money”

FFS which is it??

Snap on roll cabs go up to about 30 grand, that's why🤣🤣

My toolbox was £450 with a massive sale on. Theres another one in there (somewhere) that was loads cheaper

Costco do a decent toolbox for sub £700. I have the older style and it's been great.


Shows out of stock online, but there's always loads in store.

Thanks all.

You had a look at Sealey tackle?

How big you wanting and whats your budget?... scratch that bit about budget, you're made of money👀

Good shout, just had a look at the sealey stuff but they don't seem to have anything around that size and budget. Typically either cheap stuff or a bit too rich / small.

I don't mind spending a bit, but there's always someone who comes along suggesting financing a £5k snap-on box which just makes me feel sick.

Another good shout, have been looking at these in costco for years and keep being tempted, but for this one I'm wanting something with a workbench top.

Each 2 there own on this 1, but I must say US pro are very good 4 the money! I’ve got strap on,Halfords,US pro & Bott. 2 me bott beats the lot, but that top dollar. If u won’t 2 b the man then strap on it is, but don’t waste the money! Get US pro and the money u save put it towards MORE tools!. It’s a chest of drawers at the end on the day what’s inside matters 👍🏻

We use sgs at my current work place and quite frankly the quality is proper terrible. I have one of their old Jack's that's been okay but newer stuff is awful.

Their customer support is really s**t too so I'd avoid them imo

FFS Dan. Just about to order this and thought I'd check here for any comments.

Back to the drawer board (see what I did there)

Look at sealey. I got a roll car from them for our company workshop tools a few months ago and its pretty decent quality as well. The warranty / aftersales is normally really good as well.

They have a promotion on at the moment on toolboxes as well.

Machine mart do a decent range of big roll cabs and the garage install stuff for around a grand. Their boxes seem really good quality in the stores.
 
Unfortunately these days like a lot of these brands adding their name to items sourced from all over, the likes of SGS spec stuff down to a price bearable to their target market IME.

Whilst some will offer varying levels of quality depending on budget, others don't offer that choice.

It's something I'd really want to see and feel before buying really. You get good roller bearing sliding drawers, and you get some that are clunky and not very smooth at all.

Sealey for your budget
or save up more and go for a used Snap on
I have SGS, Sealey and snap on, you can tell the quality difference by miles. Snap on needs to be the older american version not the newer one they sell

Thanks all for the suggestions, so I've been mulling it over more and been to Halfords and Machine Mart today.

Halfords don't really have anything and the Clarke stuff in machine mart just doesn't seem much for the money so discounted both.

Spoke to someone at SGS yesterday who insisted their stuff is the best quality and I'll definitely be impressed but @dann2707's review along with those online make me doubt it.

After @Romanian Tyre Fitter and @Turbo steve's suggestion I've looked at Sealey and really like this Click because I like the idea of being able to charge batteries in it bit it's just not practical in every other way.

So it looks like USpro but it looks identical to the sgs ones just a bit dearer.

Tldr, thanks for suggestions, I still don't have a f**king clue.

I've just got x2 US pro tool 72" boxes in work last week for general storage, they were £1400 ish inc VAT and quite frankly, they're s**t. Tried to send them back but they wanted us to arrange a courier and the lads had trashed the packaging so we're keeping them but I wouldn't recommend them tbf.
