- Storage boxes are a type of container used for storing or transporting items in an organized fashion. They are essential containers to own to make sure that your home, office, or workstation is neat and organized.Plastic storage boxes are an easy and uniform way to store multiple items without taking up too much space. Whether it's tools or equipment, you can pack anything into a plastic storage box with a lid, close the lid, and store it without any worry about your items being lost or exposed to elements like heat, water, or dust.Boxes are measured in volume, with their sizes expressed in liters. To calculate the volume of a storage box, one must multiply the length, width, and height of the box. Because calculating the volume factors in three different measurements, storage boxes with the same storage capacity might have different dimensions. It's important to always check the dimensions in addition to the volume when picking a storage box.RS carries a great selection of storage boxes, ranging from large storage tubs that can hold big items like rope, power tools, and equipment, to small containers that are perfect for storing components or small tools.
