About Clever Crates

Clever Crates is a collapsable plastic crate they claim is durable, stackable, and great for shopping or in the workshop. They say just unfold, pop, and pack – Clever Crates claims it can hold over 20 lbs. When done with your Clever Crate, reverse the process and store for next use.

There is no information about who sells Clever Crates, other than its website was created by Liquid Focus, a for-hire marketing company; therefore there is no BBB accreditation or rating information available.

How Clever Crates Works

Clever Crate’s open dimensions are listed as 15.35" x 10.25" x 8.25" and comes in black, blue, or green. It seems to hold 16 liters, which translates to 4.2 gallons (see Bottom Line for more info.) To use Clever Crates, they say to replace your grocery bags or storage boxes with Clever Crates. They boast not only are they colorful, eco-friendly, and sturdy, they neatly fold away when not in use, saving you space.

Clever Crates says it sells for $10.99 on its website, but like many of these ASOTV products, there’s a catch. First, you must pay $6.99 S&H, but then they automatically add another $6.99 in fees for their “double offer,” which translates to 2 Clever Crates for a total of $22.98. While they say you can return Clever Crates within 30 days for your money back, this means the $10.99 purchase price, and not the $12.98 in S&H (plus you have to pay to ship it back).

Clever Crates includes:

  • “Double Offer” Clever Crates (extra S&H)
  • Clever Crates Pricing, Shipping, and Returns

Clever Crates Privacy Policy

Clever Crates’ Privacy Policy page cleverly tries to strip you of all your rights. They say they can use your name, phone number, email address, and snail mail to bombard you with solicitations. They say as an “added benefit” you can opt-in to harassment from affiliated third parties, but give you no opt-in (or opt-out) option before checkout.

Bottom Line: Is Clever Crates a Scam?

Clever Crates fails our basic “scam” test: if the shipping and handling fees are more than the product itself, we suggest you stay away. This is because, as outlined above, they will still make money off of you even if you decide to return the product. If for some reason the idea of this collapsible crate still appeals to you, we suggest you order from Amazon or Home Depot. Both stores carry this product and even offer it in a larger 32 liter size for less, with return and privacy policies that are much more reasonable.

    Great Product!

    • Southern California,

    I use my Clever Crates far more than I ever expected. They are great for trips to the grocery store. I also use it for storage in my home office. I grabbed it for the beach the other day, and it was fantastic. I could transport most of our stuff and then just shake out the sand when we were done. They are super convenient and I love having fewer bags in my life!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
