1. A storage device including:

  • a framework comprising upper members and lower members connected together in a spaced-apart relationship by a plurality of struts, anda container-supporting arrangement comprising a first base frame configured to support a container and a second base frame configured to extend partly out of the framework, each of the first and the second base frames including a pair of generally parallel elongate side members and an elongate rear member extending between the side members,wherein at least one of the side members of the first base frame includes a projection configured to cooperate with a slot on at least one corresponding side members of the second base frame, andwherein the first base frame is slidably mounted on the second base frame, the second base frame being slidably mounted within the framework, and said first base frame configured to extend partly out of the second base frame, thereby assisting with preventing the storage device from de-stabilizing when the container-supporting arrangement is moved to the extended position, andwherein the container-supporting arrangement is slidably mounted within the framework configured to support a box-shaped container, in use, the container-supporting arrangement being moveable between a retracted position configured to store the container within the framework, and an extended position configured to position at least part of the container outside the framework, wherein upper surfaces of at least some of the struts of the framework include upper formations configured to cooperate with corresponding lower formations located on another storage device, thereby assisting with securely stacking the storage device and the another storage device.
