What would you write in the box that says "tell us a little bit more about how your skills and experiences will benefit the team"?

It's very confusing. I'm only applying for a bloody "move heavy stuff around, hulk smash" job and you don't need any formal skills or qualifications other than being strong... but they use the same application form for every position in the whole store. From managers to shelf stackers to those old people that greet you on the way in.

Should I just write about how nice and brilliant I am, and how I'm such a quick & enthusiastic learner?

Do the joke about how you got banned from Homebase because an assistant asked if you wanted decking so you hit him first.

You think that would work? Maybe the droll comedy mixed with the fact that I'm banned from Homebase would make me the perfect candidate.

Hmm. It's risky - but at least my application would stand out.

"I can do it if I B&Q it."
(That's what I'd put anyway).

If you've had a job before try and single out an experience where you were really good in a team/with a customer and write it down and how it helped - having a story is a bit better than just saying you're brilliant (but don't forget to state your brilliance as well )

Do that. I did that when I applied to Focus DIY. Got the job. Hated it tho. I'm only 5 foot 4 and built like a skelf so lifting things ain't my strong point.
