So, today’s browsing opened up a world of baskets. If you want wood and wicker baskets, talk to the folks at Longaberger. If you’re looking for plastic baskets, you’ll want to contact Rubbermaid. But, if you’re in the market for stainless steel baskets, AnySizeBasket.com is a site you should check out. Their baskets are industrial grade, to be used for the dipping, spraying, cleaning, degreasing, and coating of various and sundry parts and products, not for taking a casserole to the church potluck. They offer quite a wide variety of sizes and styles, with variety in shapes, too, as well as multiple kinds of handles. In addition to different sizes of the overall baskets, you can specify different sizes of mesh, both in the size of the wire and in the size of the holes. It’s amazing how many different options they can offer before even getting into the custom-order realm.
What if you’re not entirely sure what specs are best suited to your application? Not a problem–AnySizeBasket goes through with explanations of a number of the options, including further details on their ordering and manufacturing processes. You can get all kinds of information about the various aspects of their custom baskets on their Frequently Asked Questions page. They do a great job of explaining some of the technical stuff in a way that even a layman, like me, with no experience in the field, can understand what they’re discussing. To make the process even more user-friendly, when you start choosing options off the drop-down lists (except for size), to get a price list on your specified basket(s), the picture on the form changes to match, so you can get a rough idea of what you’re getting. The form is set up nicely, to show you a price list before you have to give any personal information.
If, after playing with the price-quote form and reading through the Frequently Asked Questions, you still can’t get quite what you need, there’s another page on the e-commerce site that has contact information for Three M Tool, who can help you with a custom order. Another great feature of this site’s business policy is that there’s no minimum order required, so anyone, private or commercial, can get as few or as many baskets as are needed or wanted.
It’s not the kind of basket you’d fill with goodies for your sister’s birthday (unless your sister works for some industrial-grade cleaning company), but these baskets are perfect for the tasks for which they’re designed, and AnySizeBasket.com works pretty hard to help match one of their baskets to your project.
