How Much Does a Locker Cost?

“How much does a locker cost?” We get asked that question pretty much every single day. And the answer? It depends. Our selection is large and varied, full of different sizes, styles and types of lockers. The material a locker is made out of–typically metal, plastic or wood–affects the price (check out our blog post about the differences in these types of materials to find out more). If you’re looking for a bank of lockers (3-wide instead of just one individual locker, for example), that factors into the cost. We also offer custom options and accessories that cause the price to fluctuate.

Taking all of that into consideration, we truly do have lockers to fit every budget. You can spend anywhere from $10.95 (for our Tiny Steel Lockers) to upwards of $2,500 for some of our heavy duty and stainless steel lockers. Here’s a breakdown of some of our more popular styles of lockers in price points on the lower end of most people’s budgets. 😉

FAQ Series: Are Metal, Plastic or Wood Lockers Best?

To put it simply, choose metal lockers when you’re looking for something that meets the needs of most locker requirements at the lowest price. Plastic lockers are generally your most expensive option, but are highly recommended if they’ll be exposed to high amounts of moisture or corrosive elements. Wood lockers are a good choice if you want to add a touch of beauty, warmth and elegance to your space.

Still not sure if metal, plastic or wood lockers are right for you? Keep reading for more detailed information about each type of material.
