Rubbermaid Tall Storage Cabinet – the Pros & Cons…

Do you want to add wall cabinets in your garage – that don’t take a lot of time to put together? The Rubbermaid tall storage cabinet snaps together in minutes. However, it is ultra strong and durable.

Rubbermaid Tall Storage Cabinet for Garage

Strong, Durable Cabinets – Yet Lightweight & Easy to Move:

The high-density polyethylene construction gives it the high strength, yet each tall cabinet weighs less than 70 lbs. As a result, they are much easier to set up and move.

In addition, the plastic resin material does not rust, rot or dent. Therefore, these Rubbermaid cabinets will last a long time and look good with minimal maintenance.

Note: Although these cabinets have a heavy-duty structure, they are not leak-proof. In other words, water can get inside the cabinet if it rains. Consequently, it’s not recommended for outdoor use.

Suncast Resin Cabinets

That said, Suncast makes waterproof resin cabinets that you can use outdoors, even in rain. The shelves can only hold about half the weight of Rubbermaid, but you can adjust their height.

The Suncast cabinet provides a convenient, compact and lower-cost alternative to using a traditional storage shed.

Rubbermaid Locking Utility Cabinet with 4 Shelves

Compared to higher end industrial steel or metal cabinets, the Rubbermaid version costs less and can save you money. However, these storage units still have that rugged, commercial look and can store a lot of gear.

Stacked side-by-side, they can help de-clutter and organize your garage while giving it some industrial style. With their simple assembly and virtually effortless installation process, you’ll wish you had gotten them sooner.

When I finally got around to organizing my garage, I realized that I purchased 2 of several items simply because I couldn’t find the first one. Looking back, I wasted a bunch of money.

This cabinet comes with 4 large shelves that can hold over 150 of weight. However, you can’t adjust their height or remove them.

How to Store Tall or Long Tools:
