Out of all the necessary items a tradesperson needs for their job, a toolbox is the one thing that needs to be of the highest quality. Whether it is for on the road jobs, constructions sites or even working from out of the home shed, a toolbox is a tradesperson’s briefcase and laptop rolled into one. When going from job to job and storing your tools, it is important to ensure that your car is equipped to not only store your tools but protect them from the elements and theft. From function to preference, the material of toolbox may depend but what ever type you decide, you need one that does the job. There are a few key differences between aluminium toolboxes and steel toolboxes so it is important to assess what your needs and preferences are before investing in one for your car. Aluminium toolboxes are an amazing choice as aluminium is a lightweight material. This means you do not have to worry about your toolbox weighing down your car. Just because it is lighter material, that does not mean that it is not durable like steel toolboxes. Aluminium is a very durable material and being easier to work with, it means that there are more diverse options when it comes to the unique customisation that you may need for your toolbox. It is also generally a cheaper option than steel. If you need a lighter, cheaper and more customised toolbox, you can be rest assured that when you order any aluminium toolboxes with T.C Boxes, you will not be sacrificing on durability and will be able to get just the one you are looking for.
While aluminium toolboxes are quite durable, steel toolboxes are second to none when it comes to durability. They may be a little bit heavier and possibly more expensive but their lasting power is makes it worth the investment. Heavier materials mean that you are to transport heavier equipment and add more load to the shelves so if you find yourself having to carry a significant amount of weight and/or volume in your car toolbox, then steel toolboxes are a marvellous choice. It also means that if you are visiting more industrial sites and places that may put your tools at risk, the steel toolboxes are a great way to ensure their protection. The aluminium toolboxes may be more pliable and customisation, but with the finishes that you are able to apply to steel toolboxes can protect rusting and can come in many colours to match your car, giving it that extra level of professionalism and style. If you are looking for toolboxes that are easy to clean, can be overloaded and can last an age, then choosing a steel toolbox from T.C Boxes for your vehicle is definitely the right option.
It is something of an iconic Australian site, having your dog on the back of the ute as you drive around, but just like adding seat belts into cars and making vehicles with crumple zones, a lot of changes made for safety are definitely for the better. This is definitely the case when it comes to our furry friends. Which is why investing in a dog box for your ute is the best way to keep your pooch safe as they travel with you from place to place. Strapping or tying the dog on the back is not the safest option and just leaving them unsecured is downright dangerous, so if they are a larger dog or one that cannot sit still, making them unable to ride with you in the cab then a dog box is the safest option, especially if you are travelling at high speeds. Not only does it keep them safe while driving, it is that extra layer of protection for them from the elements. Direct sunlight or being out in the cold and rain is not good for anybody, particularly man’s best friend, which is another layer of protection a dog box offers. With additional storage or a fridge being an option, along with steel toolboxes or aluminium toolboxes, making them the perfect for those camping trips or to use as toolboxes, our dog boxes at T.C are the best option to give your dog the safest ride.
