What are Oil Drip Trays?

Oil Drip Trays help to capture oil and coolant / anti-freeze drips, preventing them from damaging floors or causing slips. Oil drip trays are usually made from tough plastic and come in various sizes to suit different needs.

How does an Oil Drip Tray work?

Oil drip trays usually have a wide, shallow base to capture the oil and other fluids cleanly and safely. Some models are part drain pan and part container, so the oil is held safely in an enclosed shallow box.

Other oil drip trays have a pouring spout to decant the oil, a handle, or wheels to move the drain pan around. These features are designed to make handling and moving the waste oil even easier and safer, with no risk of spills.
