Toolboxes and Tool Chests - More Information

What are Toolboxes?

Toolboxes are sturdy containers for housing small tools, parts and accessories, and are popular with mechanics and technicians, as well as the DIY enthusiast. They are manufactured from a durable material, often metal or tough plastic, with drawers, pockets and loops to store the tools away. Most are lockable and portable, with either a carry handle and / or wheels.

How do Toolboxes work?

Toolboxes and tool chests require no assembly – they are supplied ready to use. It’s worth choosing the toolbox or tool chest that has the right number of drawers or compartments for your tool / accessories collection, and that your tools will fit in the space. Consider, too, if you need to buy a larger toolbox than you need now to accommodate extra tools in the future.

What are the benefits of using Toolboxes?

  • They provide a clean, protected place to store valuable tools, keeping them away from chemicals, oils, harsh weather conditions and impacts / knocks so that the tools remain in good condition for longer
  • Tools can be sorted and organised into different compartments, saving valuable time locating the right tool – and avoiding the expense and hassle of replacing an essential tool or part that has gone missing
  • Lockable toolboxes and tool chests greatly reduce the risk of theft, vandalism and misuse by unauthorised employees
  • Many toolboxes are fully portable with comfortable handles and / or wheels, minimising the risk of manual handling injuries associated with transporting tools
  • They provide a smart, professional image, ideal for customer-facing technicians
