This is an excellent box for the money. Little features like the felt roof and the amazing tongue and groove cladding build in plenty of longlife. This is an example of great value for money.

Let's Take a Closer Look...

Shed Type and Roof Size

BillyOh Keep It Tidy Deck Box Front Closed DoorThis is a storage unit that has plenty to recommend it. As regards the measurements, width wise it is 160.5 cm, and this goes down to 146.5 cm internally. The depth of the unit is 81 cm and this reduces down further to 67.5 cm internally. While we wouldn’t think this is a major issue, losing nearly 15 cm in internal depth is no small matter. It may be worth considering if you are very specific in what you want to store.

The roof of the unit is backed up by solid sheet materials. This is pretty solid stuff for a storage box, and on top of that solid sheet material is a felt covering. This may seem a little strange for a box, but when you think about the uses of the box it kind of makes sense. The felt roof will keep the unit dry, as well as protect the interior. It is a nice little touch, and we feel that it adds value to a great extent. It just keeps the interior safer when it comes to rainwater.

Cladding and frame and floor

BillyOh Keep It Tidy Deck Box SideInterestingly, the unit also has tongue and groove cladding throughout. This Is certainly not the standard for storage boxes, and it is more than welcome to find it in a storage box. This is tough stuff, and will provide you with a box that has a very tough exterior. Not only that, the smooth and tough exterior (with planks locking together)will also resist rain water too.

The floor has that same solid sheet material that the roof has. So all in all this is a pretty tough little storage box that has the watertight aspect as well as the tough and durable exterior.

Treatment requirement and warranty

BillyOh Keep It Tidy Deck Box Inside ViewThe box has been pre-treated at the factory. This is again a real bonus and we were slightly surprised to see it included in a storage box. This makes a big difference, because you can relax a little, and simply expect the box to have plenty of durability over the years. There is no need for treatment and this is a real point of value.

Security and privacy

There is no locking system included in the unit.

Customisation options

BillyOh Keep It Tidy Deck Box Closed DoorIn another great little move for such a small item, you can choose the colours of the box and apply the paint yourself. This is a great added extra and it allows you to have some individuality for your storage box.

 

So, How Does It All Stack Up?

We can’t fault the simple fact that this box has tongue and groove work in it. And with that felt roof, you’re looking at a quality box. The pre-treatment helps too.

Tongue and groove keeps things safe and secure for years. On top of that, the pretreatment means that you have plenty of life left in this box.

The size of the box is adequate for anyone who has a few things lying around the garden at the end of a long afternoon in the sun. For example, it will easily hold garden toys and cushions.

Value For Money 10/10

The value really comes in with this unit. The tongue and groove is something you simply don't expect in a box, and the pre-treatment is going to save you money over the years anyway. This is a high quality box that presents with excellent value for money.
8.5
Overall Score
Final Thoughts: This is a high quality box that really presents as great value for money. There are not any issues apart from the slight reduction in internal size. But we liked the build quality and heartily recommend this compact and tough box.
