VonHaus 44 Multi Drawer Organiser for Small Parts - DIY Tool Bits, Fixings, Fishing Tackle, Crafts - Black/Orange Review

VonHaus are a Manchester-based tool and homeware company that produce a range of the best storage bins for the UK market. The multi-drawer organiser by VonHaus that we got our hands on has an impressive number of compartments in a sturdy plastic chest.

The lower half of the cabinet is divided into 12 larger drawers, and the top half is split into 32 smaller ones that perfect for those little bits and pieces.

The drawers are strong but flexible, which is handy if you happen to drop one. They won’t fall out though, because each drawer has a stop to prevent it falling all the way out on their own.

One of our favourite features of this handy storage cabinet is the fact that it can sit on a workbench as a free-standing chest, or be wall-mounted using the keyhole shaped mounts on the back. This means you can mount it in your shed, workshop or even the back of your van.

Sunix Power Tool Organizer, Wall Holder, Wall Mount Review

The power tool organiser that we tested from Sunix is a real design classic. It’s the sort of traditional wooden tool organiser you expect to see on the wall of a professional workshop.

Sunix Power Tool Organizer is a really sturdy wall-mounted organising system to keep all your hand-held power tools at arm’s length for when you need them. If you spend too long looking for the right drill or impact driver, it’s the best storage bin for your shed or workspace.

The five lower compartments are large enough to hold most standard cordless drill-drivers securely, and the two shelves above can store just about anything you want. The widths of the lower compartments range from 7.5 to 8.5 cm, so you can choose which one fits your tool collection best.

The tool organiser we tried out comes as a flat pack, but it was easy enough to read the instructions and put it together. It comes pre-drilled with four fixing holes, but not any wall-fixings, so you can choose the right ones for where you’re going to attach it to.

Draper Expert 28741 30 Drawer Storage Organiser Review

Draper are a well-known UK tool brand that produce a comprehensive range of hand tools, fixings and storage solutions. Their Expert line of products suits DIYers and professional tradespeople alike.

The first thing you notice about the Draper storage cabinet is the robust steel frame. It’s strong enough to stack things on top of it, but not so heavy that it can’t be wall mounted using the included keyhole shaped slots. It’s this quality that makes them the best storage bins for garage use.

The storage cabinet we tried out holds a large number of tough plastic drawers to fill with anything you like, in three different sizes. There are 25 smaller drawers, three medium sized drawers and two large ones, so they’re the best plastic storage bins for smaller items.

The small draws are only 5 x 13 cm, so they’re perfect for storing small fixings or hobby related items like buttons or even small electronic components. As you would expect, it’s covered by the Draper tools guarantee, so you can be confident in the workmanship, or replace it within its lifetime.

Faithfull FAIPAN43 Storage Bin Set with Wall Panels (43 Pieces) Review

Faithfull have more than three decades of experience producing quality tools and accessories, and the FAIPAN43 storage bin set is a versatile mix of the best storage bins and pegboard that’s we’ve reviewed so far.

Constructed of tough plastic, the board itself is supplied in two separate panels, so it can be mounted on the wall of a garage or shed depending on how much room you have to play with. On to this board, you can choose to mount any of the 28 sturdy bins wherever you want.

Alongside the storage bins are other useful hooks and various tool holders, all made from the same flexible plastic that is still very strong. Overall, they’re the best stackable storage bins that also include a useful pegboard setup.

Our favourite feature is the fact that you can choose to fix the wall panels to the wall in so many places. This versatility means that if you are only storing light objects, you can get away with only a few fixings, but if certain areas will hold heavier items, you don’t have to worry about extra strain.

Deuba Plastic Bins Kit with Wall Panel 32 Pcs Storage Bin Rack for Garage Wall Mounted Organizer Unit Stackable Boxes Review

Deuba have a reputation for affordable storage solutions and homewares that offer useful quality and lower prices.

We got our hands on the Deuba Plastic wall panel storage kit and liked the no-nonsense approach to storing a lot of bits and pieces on a sturdy wall-mounted pegboard. The two pegboards offer flexibility- you can mount them together or separately depending on how much space you have.

The 30 included polypropylene boxes are strong but slightly flexible, meaning they won’t splinter or crack like cheaper plastics, which is useful when mounted high off the floor.

There are two sizes of box to choose from, and they stack on top of each other even when they’re not attached to the board.
