Just mentioned this in another thread but these bins are perfect for storing prebuilt terrain trays AND general DF storage as well

The IRIS bins are awesome. I travel about an hour to my game and they work perfectly to keep the terrain in order. The drawers slide out from the rest of the cart so you don't need to take the entire cart.

I'm looking for a way to prebuild on a bunch of terrain trays and be able to pull out different 12x12 Terrain trays that already have terrain on them depending on where games go. Ideally it would be a tower that the terrain trays can slide into and out of, has anyone found good solutions for this?

Thanks!
You should take a look at this thread, where I show how I store a rather large build in some plastic trays. I have a number of the rolling trays that Riley posted.

Brief synopsis if you don't want to check out the thread (you should though):

I break this:

Into this:

And store them for game day in these:

Under-bed storage tubs are an option also. The ones I have are long enough for 2 terrain tray builds and tall enough for a bit of elevation as well.

These are awesome rolling stackers of six 14x14x3 boxes. I use them for both loose DF piece storage, and for storing prebuilt 12x12 terrain trays.

This is what I use. If you want prebuilds ready to go at hand you can always use a Baker’s rack.

For transportation I've been using the shipping boxes that some of DoD came in (the slightly larger than 12x12 footprint ones. I can stack 4-5 prebuilt terrain trays in one, and between the magents, weight, and lack of wiggle room, the builds have been surviving being carried up/down stairs, loaded into a car, driven somewhere, and typically wheeled on a cart to a venue.

For storage at home, I've just been stacking them outside of a box, on a cabinet near the gaming table. Though I have been thinking about commissioning a wooden tower (to match the rest of my furniture), still thinking through the features I want it to have.
