Music Box Designs Sturdy Solid Wood Stackable Record Storage Crates

Netherlands-based Music Box Designs manufactures these solid wood vinyl storage containers and ships them world-wide for a very reasonable price. Shipping is free in The Netherlands and throughout most of Europe.

These ruggedly built, visually attractive, stackable and easily carried wooden storage boxes (14.5"x14.5"x13.5") cost between $70.00 (Birch Plywood) and $104.00 (Oiled Oak). Natural Oak costs $98.00 Shipping cost to the United States, Canada, Ireland and the U.K. is a very reasonable 20 Euro for either 1 or 2 units (in other words, if you're buying, buy 2). There's a special discount if you order 5 at a time or more (all quoted prices are approximate depending upon currency fluctuations).

Birch Plywood

Oiled Oak

These boxes are exceptionally well-made and sturdy. If there's anything to criticize about them it's that they are surprisingly heavy (17.5 pounds), which makes a filled unit very heavy and probably best used for static storage rather than for transporting records, unless you are "strong like bull".

Those are gorgeous. I had been buying my record crates as needed from The Container Store. They had been carrying essentially a record sized milk crate for about $15. They're great, but the manufacturer stopped making them.

Michael those look like the Totte boxes IKEA used to sell like 20-30 years ago. Pretty sure I bought mine from a recommendation of yours back then.

I'm reasonably sure of the name, but Google draws a blank it's been so long.

at Homegoods and other stores similar (new junk stores) for under $30. For $120 you could probably find a guy who does wood working as a hobby to make 2 or 3.

Looks like its 6 or more for the discount;
For folks wishing to order more than 5 Vinyl Storage Boxes at a time, please contact us for a special discount.
Plus when I added more than 2 to the cart, there was no shipping option available to me for the UK, 1 or 2 was fine - oh well.

I dropped MusicBox a mail with a few q's and received a very quick and helpful reply from one of the owners Philip - explaining that there had been some challenges identifying the shipping charges for > 2 boxes.

All fixed now though - the cart will calculate shipping as you'd expect.

Re discounts - because of the confusion around 5 or 6, I think 5 will be ok too - but best reach out.
