[Princess Auto] 5-Shelf Galvanized Steel Shelving Unit 36x18x72 $49.99

Looking for some storage options for the garage and came across this shelving unit.

Galvanized-steel construction for rust resistance and long-lasting durability. Bolt-free design for easy assembly. MDF shelves are economical, yet durable. Each shelf holds up to 385 lb.

Then it is not a good deal for me this time as the shipping alone charges me $17.50.

This is $49.99 and free shipping starts at $50. Add a filler item and you'll get free shipping.

this is a good price, esp like the 385lb rating
i bought canadian tire versions of these that were more expensive and weaker, and required a lot of nuts and bolts to setup... but i bought one for my condo locker to organize everything. ended up putting my tires on each shelf along with other random stuff. one shelf has already slightly warped, so i'm expecting this to perform much better with a 385lb rating.

Can I remove the bottom 2 shelves and store something really tall on the ground?

Maybe, depending on the weight you are putting on the remaining upper shelves. If you can leave the very bottom shelf in place, it will help to provide stability and keep the 4 uprights from spreading out or wobbling.

Thanks OP.

Canadian tire has similar ones for 59.99 and was not as deep, I believe that was 16 inches deep.

Amazon has the same measurements but at $100+

Costco has some good ones that are larger for 99.99

If I didn’t get the Canadian tire ones and assemble them, I would’ve hopped on this deal.

I bought these a few months ago. I didn't put the bottom shelves in, however, I did put pieces of wood between the posts on the short sides, and screwed the shelves to the wall.

If you leave them free-standing without the bottoms in, I would almost guarantee that they would crumple and fall.

I also bought this shelf during the last sale. Very nice shelf.

The assembly instructions were terrible though.

Agreed assembly instructions are bad. You'll want to wear protective gloves while putting them together because there are some very sharp corners. If all the shelves aren't in agreed could be unstable. Otherwise it was set it and forget it for basement storage.

Does this need to be bolted to a wall to stay steady?
Have kids so wondering if it could be pulled/toppled over easily.

With all the shelves in it's fairly stable. I wouldn't worry about it falling on me yanking something off of it with some force

For sure it should be bolted to a wall for safety reasons.

Well, kids could be quite inventive. I'd prefer to be reasonably safe in such questions.

If you are worried about them pulling on it then definitely bolt to wall
