Lifetime 60012 Deck BoxI wouldn’t mind having the Lifetime 60012 deck box to store my extra items when they are not in use. Besides, the Lifetime 60012 deck storage box looks like a very decent storage box and it also has an affordable price.

Well at least it has a price that I can afford. But I would have to sacrifice buying other things if  I decided to buy it. Do you have to sacrifice buying other things like me? I know most of my friends do.

I really don’t have enough room to put away my things in the house. Most of my family members don’t like to throw away their things even though a lot of them are in a broken state. I guess they are just very sentimental of the things and don’t have the heart to throw them away. If you don’t mind me asking, are you a sentimental person? I think that is a very good trait to have.

Lifetime 60040 VS 60012 Storage Box

Lifetime 60012 Storage BoxAccording to my research, there is really not that much difference between those two models. I find the only differences between them are the model numbers and the colors.

The Lifetime 60040 is made in Desert Tan and the 60012 model is also made with Desert Tan with a dark brown lid. It really depends on you which color you like the best.

I believe both storage boxes have the same features and benefits of owning them. I also find this Lifetime extra large deck box is more popular than the 60040 model. If you would like to check out the Lifetime 60040 storage box, please do so by clicking here.

Lifetime 60012 Extra Large Deck Box Review

This storage box has a very high average rating. As of today June 25, 2013 the average rating is 94%  with 100% being the highest. That average number is rated by about 520 customers and the number keeps on growing. Most of the users are so very happy with their purchase that they give it either a 100% or a 80% rating and about 6% users give it a 40% to 20% rating.

Pros: Customers are saying it is easy to set up, very sturdy, and made with high quality. Most of them are saying it doesn’t leak and keeps their things dry and clean. Highly recommended to others. One of the user owns three of these storage boxes.

Cons:  The users who give a low rating are the ones who have received a defective product, such as missing pieces or not molded properly. These kinds of things are bound to happen to any kind of products.

If that happens to you then just ask for a replacement or a refund. I know it is a hassle if that happens to you. It also happened to me too when I was buying a glass TV stand. There was a missing piece from the box preventing us from finishing it. We didn’t ask for a refund but asked for a replacement instead. We really do like that TV stand. We are still using it and we have had it for about 5 years now.
