When it comes to choosing the right box for you, there is a range of things you need to consider. To help you narrow down your choices, we’ve put together a list of our top tips to choosing the perfect T.C Box for you! 

What do you need the box for?

The first thing you need to do is ask yourself, what do I need the box for? Whether you’re a tradie who requires a toolbox that comes with several drawers for organizing your tools or you’re an avid road-tripper who needs the large open space of our canopies, we’ve got you covered.

Getting the right size!

Knowing the length and width of your tray is important as this will narrow down the options that you can choose from. Below are some helpful measurements that will help you when choosing the best T.C Box for you!

  • CANOPIES - All of our canopies have the same width of 1775mm and the same height of 850mm, it is just the length of the canopy down the tray that varies from 800mm to 1800mm. If the width and height suit, all you have to do is measure how much room you want left at the back of your tray.
  • TOOLBOXES - When it comes to our toolboxes, both the Aluminium and Steel versions have equal widths of 600mm and the same height of 850mm, it is just the length down the tray that varies again from 1150mm to 2100mm. It is also important to note that the hip height is different for aluminium and steel toolboxes.

If after reading about the measurements you're still unsure on which option would best suit your individual needs, give one of our friendly sales team a call on 1300 TC BOXES and let them guide you in the right direction to choosing the perfect T.C Box! 

Choosing your desired colour!

Having a clear idea of the look you are wanting will help the process of deciding on a box much easier.

As standard we offer checker plate and raw aluminium as well as a Black Scylla and Horizon White Finish. If you are after a more custom look, we have that too! Do you want your box to match your sandy taupe rig or is it the exclusive two-toned look that has caught your fancy? No matter what look you want to achieve, we can help. 

Adding those accessories! 

Having an idea of what will be stored in your box will also help you make the right decision on the best box for you. Will you get the most use out of having inbuilt drawers or is it a large open space that you need? With a range of kitchen, fridge and pantry slides to suit, the options of what you can do are endless.

It's important that you have a think about the accessories you might want to add to the exterior of the box. Does your trade require you to have a ladder rack or are you thinking you will get more use out of installing a pair of our popular 4mm flared wheel guards? For even more ideas on what accessories you can add, be sure to check out our blog on Fitting out your perfect canopy.
