I need more crates to sort out my parts. Needs approx 4 crates
Ideally those stackable royal mail crates if you have any!
Open to other types of crates though
they're great aren't they?
I went down a rabbit hole trying to buy a few, found the supplier: https://www.michaellinnell.co.uk/?page=showprod&cat=Satchels%20and%20Trays&id=441
emailed them, answer attached.
Thanks, the problem is minimum order, I need 4 not 50 haha
@littleK cheers, just 1 crate sadly but that is still something. I might just get some crates from the market. I got lucky and found 10 RM crates once outside of my house!
I have a blue one of these if any use https://www.basil.com/en/crate-l-bicycle-crate-black.html
not stackable with the RM ones though...
We have a Tesco food delivery to the office every Monday, and being on the second floor the delivery guy just hands us the crates out of the van with a cheery , "I'll collect the empties next week"
Fantastic things for stacking and sorting bike parts, sadly however I am in South Wales otherwise id say, come help yourself
Thanks for the tip though :)
I might just go on the market on saturday or friday, they do have some great solid blue crates
@krj cheers, yeah I need the 4 of them to be stackable so that won't be good but thanks for the help!
Says there are more than 10 available via that ebay ad I think...
Ahhh nice sorry I missed this info!
800, no less...
Listing says there are 800 available, so plenty for anyone / everyone interested…
You are right I didn't check the description properly I just saw 1 sold more than 10 available and assumed there was 1 crate first and then checked again and assumed 10 and now checked for a third time and saw the 800 in description. My bad.
I send a message to the seller so should be sorted :)
Let me know what deal you get with buying 10? I might be in for buying 10 myself but depends on the price. Prob be willing to pay £20 otherwise I’ll hold out continue finding free ones
Good to know we might get a price, are you in London?
will also buy 10 at that kind of price, based in London and can pickup
I’d also go for 5 or 6 at those prices 10 at a push
Great let's do a bulk order!
So far I have
5 for myself
10 for @BigH
10 for @platypus
6 for @littleK
For a total of 31 crates!
Should get a good discount :)
The seller is not the most responsive so will keep you all updated
Alright my fellow crate friends
Ebay seller finally replied and this is the deal we can have
For 31 crates he can do 4.50per crate
Postage would be 35£
Which is a total of
For me 22.5+8,75=31.25
For @BigH 45+8.75£=53.75
For @platypus 45+8.75£=53.75
For @littleK 27+8.75=35.75
For a grand total of 174.5£
Seems quite a lot of money for some crates so not sure if you want to go for this.
Might be easier to get those shitty crates from the market for now haha
Let me know guys I might bail out but if you're all in i can get convinced
lol he will be stuck with them for years at that price. I'm out... sadly
