How To Choose a Ute Tool Box

Posted By 4wd accessoriesdirect     July 5, 2022    


If you are a tradie or a farmer, your ute is probably your first love. The powerful vehicle is used to carry tools, equipment and other essentials to perform your job efficiently. For a value-for-money experience, investing in tool boxes is probably the first preference for ute ownersIf you are also planning to enhance the storage and functionality of your ute and are searching options for tool boxes on the Gold Coast then this post is for you.


In this post, you will find out how to choose a sturdy, durable, customised and cost-effective tool box for your ute. We will discuss the right shape, dimensions and alloy choices, so keep on reading to find the best ute tool boxes on the Gold Coast.


Standard vs custom tool boxes

A number of prefabricated options are available in tool boxes which are suitable for most popular ute models. The readymade and cost-efficient options are High Side Full and ¾  Open Door, Square Edge, High side Tool boxes with Drawers, Low Profile, Under Tray and many more.

If you have odd sized tools or equipment and feel that prefabricated options don’t make the most out of the available storage space, then getting custom-made tool boxes is also a choice. Make sure to choose an experienced manufacturer who can guide you with the best designs and have high quality setup for precise dimensions, smooth welding and fine finishes.


Functionality features

When selecting a tool box, your ultimate concern is obviously intelligent use of the available storage space. In addition to this, tradies should also keep the added weight of the tool box in mind. Adding a heavy design with multiple drawers may serve the purpose but the added weight can affect the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.

The idea is to be wise when choosing the design along with the fabrication material. Customising a tool box in aluminium alloy may sound expensive at first, but the alloy is extremely lightweight and offers the flexibility to choose a design that offers maximum storage functionality.


Maintenance and Lifespan

The most obvious choices for ute tool boxes are steel and aluminium alloys. Both are heavy duty and can withstand harsh climates. Aluminium is superior in terms of all-weather protection. With steel, you need an added layer of powder coated finish on top of the tool box to enhance the lifespan and ensure superior performance against rust.

Aluminium is rust-proof and remarkably heavy duty, whereas steel tool boxes need timely maintenance due to rust conditions. If you are a tradie working around the corrosive salt air conditions, then investing in an aluminium tool box is a wise decision.



Functional storage, lightweight features, corrosion protection and overall customisation cost are some of the key features that you need to keep in mind when choosing a tool box for your ute.
