Aluminum Tool Boxes

Our Tool Boxes Are Built To Last!

What sets us apart at Trebor is our fast turnaround times between an order request and the delivery of our aluminum truck boxes. You can expect your new tool box in a matter of days, not weeks. We know how important that is to our customers.

All our semi-truck tool boxes have multiple custom options and come in custom sizes. You can even draw the truck box you have in mind and we will build it for you. Use our custom interactive form to build your own underbody tool box, or discover Trebor’s standard tool boxes for trailers and ask for custom options.

An important concern about purchasing a truck storage box is its resistance to water and rusting. Trebor aluminum tool boxes are rustproof, light, and properly sealed along all seams and corners for maximum protection. Our compression handles ensures proper door closure and all our lids are reinforced by stainless steel hinges. No water, no rust.

Aluminum truck boxes are designed to endure the wear and tear of a life on the road. Built with 1/8″ aluminum thick material, strong stalnless steel 5″ hinges, strong handles and reinforced lids, nothing compares to Trebor’s aluminum tool boxes.

Trebor’s underbody tool box is perfect for those who have limited space but still want to maximize efficiency. It is available in a variety of finishes such as checkered, smooth aluminum with simple doors, or, to pack a punch, a smooth box with mirror doors. These heavy-duty boxes can be mounted on the side or under your truck frame.

A top lid tool box is specifically for binders, straps and chains. As the name suggests, it opens on the top and has lots of storage for your hitching and unhitching equipment. Trebor’s model is designed for maximum durability, with 1/8” thick steel sides.

In-frame toolboxes can be used for general storage or to store extra batteries. They are great for personal equipment, chains, binders and straps. And they are not only great for storage; these boxes act as a step for you while hitching and unhitching your trailer! Trebor’s design is high quality, with a top lid—attached with a piano hinge for maximum water resistance—and durable aluminum body.

Aluminum tool boxes: built to last

Aluminum is a very durable metal, and yet it is more malleable than steel, which allows it to be shaped with ease. Why is this relevant to a toolbox owner? Because the workability of aluminum means Trebor’s semi truck tool boxes are made in a matter of days after getting the specs, rather than weeks. Aluminum is also lighter than steel, which is good for fuel costs.

Its durability also comes from the fact that aluminum does not become brittle when exposed to low temperatures in the same way that other metals can. So for those whose country is a big giant freezer half of the year—ahem…Canada—this resilience will definitely come in handy during the winter months.

Furthermore, aluminum doesn’t rust, and so truck drivers don’t need to worry about what kind of weather they will potentially encounter because their heavy duty tool box will stay shiny and sleek. All of Trebor’s semi truck tool boxes are sealed along the seams and feature compression handles for maximum weatherproofing. A steel tool box, on the other hand, may be treated for weather resistance, but as soon as this coating chips, the rust will run amok.


Storage and Organization of your semi tool box

You may think that you get your semi tool box, attach it to its designated part of the truck, and voila! Your life is suddenly organized. But hang on. Before you sign a book deal and start setting up your public speaking tour as the King of Organization, you’ve got to figure out how you’re going to divide up and utilize these precious compartments for maximum efficiency.

Some options are to customize with fixed shelves, which Trebor can add in a Standard Tool box at whatever height and depth you need. You can also consider an adjustable shelf on aluminum rails, because let’s face it—some of us like to reorganize every six months or so.

Drawers are another option (think of the ones in a portable semi truck tool box and multiply by ten) as are separators, available in Trebor’s Underbody Toolbox.

Life hack: you can also put your portable aluminum tool box into your truck tool box, so you don’t have loose tools clanging around everywhere. Are you a bit of a DIYer? Weld some tray dividers to keep everything in its place—if you are creative, sky’s the limit!

Now go ahead and sign that book deal.


Making your life easier and saving you money

As mentioned previously, aluminum is lighter than steel, which is important for several reasons: first, installation is a breeze. Secondly, the light weight means less strain on your truck, less fuel costs to transport it, and ultimately fuel and energy savings. And while the price of aluminum and steel are pretty neck and neck, if you consider the longevity of aluminum, coupled with your energy savings due to a lighter load, you’ll quickly see that aluminum definitely works out to be the cheaper option.

What’s more, it is not only fuel costs you are saving—you will have to replace your tires less often, there will be less strain on the engine, and your shocks will be spared. This means that not only does your aluminum tool box last a long time, your truck will, too!

Another reason to get a custom semi truck tool box is to stop wasting time. If your tools are inefficiently stored, you will spend unnecessary time retrieving them for tasks, whereas proper storage allows for quick retrieval and more efficient completion of tasks. Do I need to say it? Time is money! Your tools will also thank you, because proper storage ensures their longevity too, which means fewer replacements needed.
