Starling’s Heavy Duty Car Trunk Organizer Review

Starling's Heavy Duty Car Trunk Organizer Review

To save money, I frequently shop at Sam’s Club. Unfortunately, the store does not provide shopping bags, so I have to bring my own or put my purchases directly in the back of my van. Milk jugs, fruit containers, and other boxes often rolled around as I drove home. My kids and I also go out to parks and zoos quite frequently. I like to keep craft supplies and other activities in my van that I can bring out at the park. Until recently, I had been keeping the supplies in random cardboard boxes, which annoyingly floated around the back of my van. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a heavy duty car trunk organizer with bonus sunshade from Starling’s in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to keep the back of my van a bit tidier.

Price

The Starling’s heavy duty car trunk organizer currently retails for $79.99 with a sale price of $29.99 on Amazon. Other similar organizers cost around $30, with a few priced less and many priced more. While I find the full retail value a bit high for my tastes, I would definitely pay the current sale price. Additionally, the organizer comes with a bonus windshield sunshade. I therefore rate the price of the Starling’s trunk organizer positively.

Design

Made with strong waterproof 1680D Oxford polyester with extra stitching and a solid three-layer waterproof PE bottom board, the heavy duty car trunk organizer from Starling’s provides two divided sections perfect for car tools and equipment, groceries, emergency tools, cleaning supplies, household belongings, and more. The organizer expands up to two feet long and folds up flat for easier storage when not in use. The covered cardboard sections will not bend or collapse easily due to added weight. One section contains two compartments to organize smaller items, and the other offers a large open area. The outside features two rubberized floor supports, eight polyester pockets, two plastic buckles for closing, two plastic buckles for locking half of the carrier, four eyelets, and two strong handles that will never break. The organizer comes with a bonus gray and black windshield sunshade. Starling’s offers a 100% lifetime warranty.

Performance

I am extremely happy with my new heavy duty car trunk organizer from Starling’s. Until recently, the back of my van was an absolutely disaster zone. Small cardboard boxes filled with paper, coloring books, crayons, markers, chalk, bubbles, and other activities for my kids to play with at the park and two foldable picnic blankets floated around between the two middle seats all the way to the rear gate. When I went shopping, loose items and bags of purchases often rolled around annoyingly and dangerously. The Starling’s heavy duty car trunk organizer helps me easily keep the back of my van tidier.

I own a minivan, and I usually leave one or both the rear seats folded down, so I have plenty of room in the back of my vehicle. When fully expanded the Starling’s heavy duty car trunk organizer measures two feet long, which fits into most vans, SUVs, trucks, and cars. Even with my rear seats in use, this organizer fits in the trunk area behind the third row. The two sections are large enough to hold all the small and medium sized items floating around in my vehicle but is still manageable enough for a small woman like myself to pick up and carry. I love that I can put my Sam’s Club purchases in the organizer and carry it into my house without making multiple trips back and forth. I therefore rate the size of the heavy duty car trunk organizer from Starling’s extremely highly.

In addition to the size, I also love all the sections and pockets in the Starling’s trunk organizer. The inside of the organizer has two large compartments. One compartment includes an extra divider to create two slightly smaller compartments on the inside. I can keep all manner of art supplies, water bottles, sunscreen, bug spray, picnic blankets, lunch containers, toys, and more secure and organized in the back of my van. The pockets on the sides are perfect for water bottles, sunscreen, bug spray, bubbles, and more! I especially love that I can put my shopping purchases inside to keep small items from rolling around as I drive home. I rate the heavy duty car trunk organizer from Starling’s extremely highly in terms of versatility of storage options.

Finally, the Starling’s trunk organizer consists of strong waterproof 1680D Oxford polyester with extra stitching and a solid three-layer waterproof PE bottom board, making it extremely durable. I can feel the high quality when I pick up this organizer and stuff it to the brim with park day supplies or shopping purchases. The rubberized floor supports prevent the organizer from shifting around in the back of my van, even when I am driving on the interstate or down winding country roads. I also love that this organizer compacts down and secures closed with buckled straps when not in use. Although I keep supplies in it at almost most times, I love that I have the option to fold it up smaller when I need more room in the back of my van for larger purchases.

The bonus windshield sunshade that comes with the Starling’s heavy duty car trunk organizer is a nice gift. The sunshade twists to fold up into a circle shape that fits into a handy storage pouch. The material is silver gray and black. I put the shade in my front window with the silver side facing out to reflect sunlight and keep my van a little cooler. The shade provided by the sunshade definitely keeps the surfaces in the front of my van from heating up to scalding temperatures. I do have a little trouble folding up the shade at times, but I have always managed to size it down small enough to fit back into the carrying case.
