    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    I use the bus tubs to transport food to/from events at my church. They work exceptionally well to haul 9x13 stacked or gallons of tea. Not how you'd expect these tubs to be used. But they work wonderfully well!!!!

    Great durable hard plastic bus tubs. I purchased six of these about 3 years ago and still using them today. Great price for them too.

    from Shuckers Posted on

    These bins are going to come in handy. I like to keep things organized so this bin is just perfect for that. I have a lot of sorting to do, and I am pretty sure I will need many more of these!

    Nice quality bus tub for restaurants, bars or home use. Black plastic is sturdy and great for carrying heavy loads of dishes. 5" depth is ideal for most applications but there are other sizes available.

    Exactly what I needed and was looking for at a fair price! I will be stocking up on this item. Not your average bus tub. Nice job, guys!

    from MM&M CATERING Posted on

    These are the best Bus Tubs for so many uses...I have used them for drain tubs with hydroponics, for storage and for my daughters wedding made a huge Greek Pasta Salad and carried to the banquet easily and served up excellent. Once you have these around you will use them in so many ways...excellent product, arrived promptly and highly recommend!

    Sturdy but lightweight enough to not add any extra bulk to the lifting! I've had three of these for over five years and the handles have yet to break off. Very classic design.

    Posted on

    Not as tall as I was expecting but overall good quality bus tub. I would suggest actually checking the measurements of the one you need.

    from Verdon Restaurants, LLC. Posted on

    For the price of these they can't be beat hold up very well can't say the same for the lids as we've broken a few but we're very rough!

    from froggys deli Posted on

    Perfect tubs for collecting dirty dishes. We ordered extra so that we could replace them as needed, but never actually had to do so because they are so sturdy.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    Nice bus box. Perfect size for crew to bust down tables and get them cleared off. Great price on this large tub and shipped fast.

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    I really like this tub because it isn't too deep. The black is also nice because it sort of hides what you're dumping into it. I've used some for ice, for shaker dumps, for almost any garbage. Washes great and easy to stack.

    from ProPreneur Marketing LLC Posted on

    I use this for my refrigeration work, catch the cleaner for coil cleaning. It gets thrown around in my truck, but holds up very well. Highly recommend!

    from Shuckers Oyster House Posted on

    This plastic bus tub is made with a very thick and durable plastic. Much thicker than expected. Excellent product and very good value, commercial quality.

    Posted on

    Excellent choice for restaurants. It is shallow than a typical bus tub but still is valuable. It holds plenty of dishes, glasses, and other dining room items.

    from The Waves Restaurant Posted on

    These were exactly as describe and held a good amount of dishes. We got multiple so we could switch them out when one got full. They were great for keep the dishes together and not having a mess of dishes.

    from Youth With A Mission Posted on

    This little tub does a great job and is sturdy enough to carry quite a bit of weight. The price is great for what you get with this tub.

    I use these bins for everything! Cake supply storage. I hold it on my lap with a tiered cake inside while my husband drives me to a cake delivery. And we use them in the kitchen to gather dirty dishes that need to be washed.

    from Sweet Art Bake Shop Posted on

    Easy to wash and store. Durable tote makes bussing a Mitch easier job. Handles on side are easy to hold onto. Also works great for food storage in the cooler!

    from Fisher's 2.0 llc Posted on

    After working in the restaurant industry for 10 years I knew how handy bus tubs can be. I bought a few of these for butchering deer. Can fit about 50lbs in one tub with no problems! They are built like a tank! I only wish I bought a few lids to go with them

    Posted on

    Great size for toting coffee cups around our church! We love that they're thick without being heavy, hold up under a lot of weight without cracking, and have an optional lid, which helps us store our serving items each week.

    from All Souls Unitarian Church Posted on

    This is a good quality tub that does its humble job. Of course, the price is definitely right. The plastic has enough flexibility to keep it from cracking easily, but enough strength to hold a full load of dishes.

    from River and Rail Bakery Posted on

    Good quality bus tub with tons of different uses. Very sturdy, good quality, and easy to clean. It is nice and short so it fits in a refrigerator very easily as well.

    from The Vermont Juice Company Posted on

    Great black plastic bust tub these are great for your small dirty dishes but for me i use this to store some of my cutlery so u know where they at

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    Perfect size for transporting dirty dishes, while not being so large that it is unwieldily or too heavy for my students to transport. Black color helps to hide stains. Study construction. Overall a good buy.

    Posted on

    We use these for multiple things around the restaurant. We use them as bus tubs, storage bins, food prep and even food storage in our walk-in.

    from Avenue54 LLC Posted on

    Product came in a timely mnner, very sturdt and price far better than local wholesalers. I will definitely be ordering more items. Wonderful for small businesses

    from Teri & Co Catering Services Posted on

    I've used these all the time in the hospitality industry but thought they might be handy at home. They are. I use them to store canned goods in. I use them in my chicken coop and I use them as a nice big strong kitty litter box. You can't beat the price and the uses are endless.

    These bus tubs are awful. They are extremely flimsy and break after 2 uses. Unless you're carting around weightless napkins, do yourself a favor and buy something more sturdy.

    Posted on

    Thank you for your review, Tiffany! We are sorry to hear that this bus tub did not suit your needs. We recommend Cambro's 1520CBP110 Black 20" x 15" x 5" Polyethylene Plastic Cambox Bus Box for a more durable option that will better suit a larger variety of needs.

    Bought two if this and very pleased with them. Used them in my catering job to transport utensils and used it at the end also to carry my dirty plates. Very strong and it did the job perfectly. Very please with them.

    The plastic bus tub is a lightweight and portable tray. It is suitable for busing dishes and glasses as well are larger items such as small pots and pans.

    Posted on

    These work very well at containing the mess, I would suggest ordering these with other items because the shipping can be high. Overall, i would buy these again.

    Posted on

    These black plastic bus tubs work great for storing dirty dishes in the middle of a rush. They help contain the mess until you are ready to tackle it.

    Posted on

    These tubs are great. As far as sturdiness goes they are medium in my opinion. They are obviously not as rigid as the clear plastic bus tubs, those are solid and do not bend. But these are nowhere as flimsy as rubbermaid tubs. We had a rubbermaid tub handle break off while carrying dishes, all our non commercial dishes in the tub broke into pieces. These tubs we have not had any issue out of though. They are sturdy enough for normal use. Short of putting this in an oven you will not hurt it. This plastic can handle freezing temperatures as well as boiling hot temperatures, all while being food safe.

    from Perk Up Posted on

    We use these for our ground sausage and ground cheese. It makes it so much easier up on the pizza make line - we were using sheet trays and would have to constantly run to the back to get more.

    from Fields of Pizza Posted on

    These are great bus trays at a great price! I like ours because they fit in these sort of crate/rolling cart things we use. What else can I say about them? They do exactly what they're supposed to. The clean well, no gross little nooks & crannies to collect nasty-ness.

    from Mud River Coffee Roasting Posted on

    Multi-use tubs. Not only are they sturdy, and of great quality, they can be used in many different ways. We recently used them to hold large gallon zip/freezer bags of cut veggies, they fit perfectly into our large refrigerator and made it easy to pull the entire bin out and easily view/find items. LOVE THEM!

    Posted on

    nice bus tubs...they are a little shallow for some applications, but still hold a nice amount of cookie dough, cereal...etc. Our bakers love these things.

    from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on

    Very durable item. Anyone who has a use for a bus tub should consider using this item. Very inexpensive but well made product. Thank you for such wonderful products.

    from Angelz Therapeutic Massage, LLC Posted on

    We use this tub for allowing our dishes to dry, its very durable and serves multiple purposes, this is a must for busy places and quick cleanups.

    from GREEN ZONE BAR & GRILL Posted on

    Very durable item. We use them to store durable equipment in for transportation. I would recommend the lids for them as well. May be purchasing more.

    from Butler Center BBQ Posted on

    I can't say anything bad about these, they tak abuse really well, they hold dishes and they get the job done. Simple and easy to use.

    Posted on

    This is a very durable and we'll made tub. I use them for making sausage and grinding meat. I like that they nest inside each other for storage.

    Posted on

    These are great multi purpose bins. They are not as tall as the bus boy bins, but they will serve the purpose and are great for storage of small bottles and utensils

    from Gluten Free Kids Posted on

    These are extremely durable and we are very, very pleased with them as well as the covers that we ordered to fit them. They are so much heavier than any reguar totes on the market. They are in as good shap today as they were when we first stated using them a year ago.

    Posted on

    I love these plastic bus tubs! I use them with ice to help serve fresh cut fruit in containers. Then I can use them to clean everything up in a jiffy!

    Posted on

    Great size and the black looks great all the time. They stack nice and hold lots of dishes. Not too heavy on its own like some bins I have used.

    from Gilpin Market Posted on

    This bin is reasonably sturdy and should be a help for storage and lugging various items. I actually got this with the hopes of using it in the business to transport bar soap. Not sure that will be possible due to the large ridges in the bottom. I'd expected a flat bottom.

    from Southern Girl Soapery Posted on

    Basic bus bin, a little shallower than what we needed. We use this as a backup and to take to tables to bus and keep the deeper bus bin at our bus station.

    Posted on

    Very sturdy bus tub (can hold lots of weight without flexing). Matching lid available. Can be used for many different applications besides as a bus tub.

    Posted on

    This bus tub is a very economical bus tub. I would not purchase this planning on loading it with heavy plates, etc. I use it for soaking our silverware and it works just fine for a very low cost.

    from Gallaghers Pizza Posted on

    These tubs come in so handy, great quality and good price! We use them in the kitchen to organize the shelves and they look great!

    Posted on

    I love using these bus tubs to store big batches of bread dough that I am letting rise. They are also good for many more tasks, such as stacking dirty dishes.

    Posted on

    The shallowness is convenient for prepping and it keeps our bartenders from over filling their buckets. Making salads in it is nice because we can have this on a high table and still cook.

    Posted on

    We prep a variety of salads and this is the perfect size box for us. The fact that they are 5 inches deep is perfect for us because we are ablr to stack afew on top of each other on the fridge shelf and utilize our space better. The heavyweight plastic is very durable and washes easily.

    from signature caterers Posted on

    Great Bus Tubs, light weight & very versatile. I use them for all sorts of things from storing items in them to putting water in them to clean utensils at events when water is not accessible. Can't bet the price!!!

    from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on

    Couldn't ask for anything more in a bus tub. It is lightweight and has a nice gloss black finish so I don't mind leaving it out for customers to bus their own tables. Can't beat the price either!

    from Proper Grounds Coffee Roasters Posted on

    These bus boxes are the perfect addition to our processing business. They are durable and inexpensive enough to buy in bulk. I think we have about 40-50 of these in the store.

    from Wildlife Processors Posted on

    We love these bus tubs for all sorts of meats, and prepped items. They are great to stack in our coolers when paired with the lids.

    from Your Pit BBQ Posted on

    A Great quality bus Tub for an Awesome price. Buy the lids and multiple colors great for sorting and storing anything including food, napkins, silverware.

    from Aston Gardens Posted on

    obviously bus tubs are an essential and crucial part of the restaurant business, and they can many times only last a few weeks. this bus tub might be inexpensive, but it sure as heck does its job

    Posted on

    The bus tub is lightweight but sturdy. Easy to pick up and move around to collect dirty dishes and bring them back to the dishroom.

    from Queen City Cupcakes Posted on

    Love these tubs! We use them with and without a lid. With the lid, they stack great and are a good size for all those odd or small items.

    Posted on

    This is a excellent product. I have been using these tubs to house rodents. Even mice won't chew out! I have also use this to house African Soft Furred Rats without any problems.

    from Daily Exotics Posted on

    Great multi use tubs, I buy some for food prep and storage and we also purchase the covers, makes it great for prepped food cooler storage.

    the 20x15x5 black bus tubs are very sturdy and light weight. The tubs are easy to clean and will last the beating when transporting food to a job.

    from Flashback Unlimited Posted on

    This bus tub is great not only for dishes but great for useful kitchen projects too! Its ideal for storing seafood on ice, Just flip a sheet pan upside down, place inside and add ice! 1/3rd pans fit perfectly inside with ice surrounding!

    It came exactly as the product description was described. It is durable, easy to clean, and can do a number of things from putting dirty dishes in to storing things.

    it is wonderful box, very useful to marinate, defrost, and storage. Not to mention the price is unbeatable. I definitely will buy more again and again

    from Kajun Burger Posted on

    Nice weight, easy to carry. This is a basic bus tub that seems like it will hold up to years of use. I wish there was one that was a little deeper and fit the same lid.

    Posted on

    We are using these pans for greenhouse produce delivery to local restaurants. We love them- easy to clean & handle & they fit well in the commercial refrigerators.

    from Griffin Family Farms, LLC Posted on

    These don't bust when kicked around. They also fit well into commercial dishwashers. Lightweight, but also strong. I also like the low price on this item!

    from Rochelle Myers Catering Posted on

    Great Price on a good product. These work for the project that I am doing. And I would recommand to others. I use these tubs in my animal raising business. Thanks

    Being a thrifty mid-western girl I typically would not spend the extra for black bus bins, but this proved worth the investment. As our food bins are now the gray and buss bins are black. We used to try to label them, but this is much better. Nice product. Holding up well.
