What is a custom tool box for your semi?
A far cry from a small box that holds a few screwdrivers and a wrench, a custom tool box, designed especially for your semi-truck, is a large box made of 1/8” aluminum that can handle the elements, wear and tear, and will keep all of your equipment safe, dry, and organized. It will carry your chains and binders, as well as your hitching and unhitching tools such as hitch balls, crowbars, lift jacks and more.
Custom aluminum toolboxes come in many formats. Imagine a custom underbody toolbox with a front opening to handily hold your chains and binders. A top lid toolbox is useful for all your tools and hitching items. In-frame toolboxes are practical in that they are also something to stand on when you are changing trailer connections. You can also opt for a cross frame custom toolbox for your truck, a step tool box, or a battery box just for your extra batteries. To ensure you’ll never lose your equipment ever again, the inside of the box can be completely customized to suit your needs with shelves and various compartments.
What are some of the risks associated with not having a custom tool box?
We all know that not keeping one’s equipment safe can result in mishaps, and even damage to expensive gear. Leaving tools loose in your truck will age them through the wear of being thrown around constantly, and there is also increased risk of theft.
Having all your items secured in one reliable place can prevent breakage. A custom aluminum toolbox will also keep all your items safe from the elements. Replacing chains due to excessive rust will be a thing of the past, as all toolboxes are equipped with compression handles that ensure a watertight lid.
How do custom tool boxes increase the efficiency of your business?
How much time have you spent poking around your truck for a certain tool? What if you counted up all those hours? A custom tool box keeps all your items in one place so you can always be sure to find them. Now that’s an efficient employee! What’s more, keeping equipment safe saves on replacement and breakage costs, saving the company money.
While you may pay more upfront for a custom tool box for your semi, the rewards will show themselves in no time at all. At the first sign of an emergency, you’ll know where all your equipment is. No matter what happens, your things will all be safe and dry. And finally, imagine the satisfaction in getting to design all those compartments – and fill them with the things that allow you to do your job.
