Cheap Deck Box Reviews
Here you can read in-depth reviews of all the units shown above. This lets you know exactly what they have to offer, ensuring that you make the right choice.
Small but good looking, this super cheap deck box by Suncast does a good job on delivering the basics at an incredibly inexpensive price. As the name implies, it acts as a small storage seat, letting you sit on top of it safely while using the 22 gallon inside storage as well. The unit looks surprisingly good in both color and texture and it’s designed to stay dry even if left outside during rain. The plastic material used also makes it quite weather resistant and durable, making it able to endure the elements all year round. While the 22 gallon storage capacity might be low just by itself, it acts as a great companion to a bigger deck box (either one you already own or the matching Suncast one). For the size (15″L x 15″W x 20″H) it’s very sturdy and the easy assembly only takes 5 minutes. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. It’s compact but good looking and extremely affordable, making this small deck box a solid option by itself if you don’t have much to store or an even better option when it acts as a companion to a bigger unit.
Keter’s Borneo is a very affordable deck box that has a more regular size and capacity while keeping the costs low. The rattan-textured body is weatherproof, strong enough to seat 2 people on top safely and most importantly, it offers a decent 110 gallons of storage. It’s well constructed, especially for the price, featuring hydraulic pistons to make usage smoother and easier and it even has a padlock ring available, letting you lock it up if you want. It measures 51″x27.6″x24.6″ (LxWxH) and the lid can hold up to 484 lbs of weight on top. The assembly is straightforward and the unit comes backed with a 2 year warranty. The Borneo is the cheapest regular sized deck box you can get that still delivers a solid experience.
With 73 gallons of capacity and a set of wheels, this cheap deck box by Suncast is a compact and easy to carry option. The 46″x22″x23″ (LxWxH) dimensions make it easy to fit in any patio and even though it’s a bit smaller then the usual, the 73 gallons capacity is still enough to store quite a few things such as a cushion set, a bunch of toys or even firewood. The construction quality is on par with the brand’s other models – it’s highly resistant against the weather, keeps items dry and has hydraulic pistons to make usage easier. It also features a set of wheels and handles which make carrying it around a piece of cake but it can’t be locked since it has no padlock rings. The design is very simple and has no texture apart from some basic details although the colors match nicely. It’s easy to assemble, as the other units before it, and it comes with the brand’s 5 year warranty. If you want a portable, compact deck box that’s durable but affordable, this is it.
Suncast’s extremely popular wicker deck box combines good looks with durability and affordability, offering you great value for the price. It measures 50″x25.5″x25.5″ (LxWxH) and is able to hold up to 99 gallons of storage, making it a pretty large unit. The plastic resin body makes it resilient and weatherproof, and it’s well embellished with a surprisingly detailed wicker pattern. It also has a uniquely curved shape and best of all, it’s watertight. On the outside it has handles for mobility and padlock rings as well, allowing you to lock it up if needed. Assembling it is very quick and it comes with 5 years of warranty. It’s also available in white. With a fantastically low price, handsome exterior and a durable body, it’s easy to see why this cheap deck box is so popular.
This deck storage bench is Keter’s most popular product due to its successful combination of form and function. Even though some deck boxes already have a top that can be used as a seat, this unit takes it one step further and delivers a fully featured bench. Available in brown or beige, the storage box alone measures 50.4″x19.7″x15″ (length x width x height) and has 70 gallons of capacity. It’s made of high density plastic, giving it high resistance against use and weather and it has a textured body that simulates wood although not as well as the Suncast units. It’s also strong, as it has to be since it doubles as a bench, holding up to 771 lbs of weight. Surprisingly, it’s also comfortable to sit on, especially if you add cushioning and there’s also padlock rings so that you can easily lock the box. For the price, it’s a really great storage bench as these usually go for nearly 50% more plus it comes with 2 years of warranty. If you’re looking for a cheap deck box bench that is discreet and handy as well, the “Eden” is a great choice.
If you want a lot of storage at a small price, this extra large deck box by Suncast is the answer. It features the brand’s typical construction quality – resilient against the elements, nice detailing and a sturdy body – but offers an enormous 129 gallon storage compartment. It’s a large unit, measuring 53″x29″x27.5″ (length x width x height), and the top also doubles as a seat if needed. Inside the box you’ll find hydraulic pistons on the sides which help to open and close the lid, and a unique storage tray to keep things a bit more organized. Due to the design it’s watertight and even though it’s possible to lock the box, the padlock has to be quite small due to the tight holes. You can assemble it in 5 minutes without any tools and the unit comes with a 5 year warranty. Again, if you want big storage at a small price, this is the very best cheap deck box you can get.
Lifetime, true to their name, always make excellent, highly durable products that actually do last a lifetime and this fantastic deck box is no exception. At a very affordable price you get 130 gallons of storage, a stylish design, perfectly fitting weatherproof construction and an enormous warranty to boot – 10 years. It’s a large unit, measuring 57″x20.75″x23.75″ (length x width x height) and it also doubles as a sturdy bench for up to 3 people. It features a spring-assisted lid opening mechanism, making usage smoother and easier and the 130 gallons of storage give you plenty of room to store anything you want. The body is made of high density plastic (with powder coated steel hinges) which is extremely resilient to the elements and it’s also designed to be watertight and lockable with a common padlock, allowing you to leave it outside all year round without worries. It’s available in two color combos – desert sand or desert sand/brown which is the one pictured. Best of all, there’s also an even bigger 150 lbs option available on the product page which apart from the obvious capacity increase also deeply improves its visuals – make sure to give it a look! The unit can be assembled in 5 minutes and it comes, as I’ve mentioned previously, with a fantastic 10 year warranty. When it comes to cheap deck boxes, this is the very best, delivering quality and value at a mind blowing price.
