Aluminium UTE Trays: Your In-Depth Guide

The heartbeat of a tradie lies in their trusty tools — and that includes their UTEs. With a trusty UTE, any tradie can easily get to their jobs with their machines and tools safe and sound.

To make the most of a UTE, an aluminium UTE tray is essential. With it, you can load more on your truck and protect them from the elements. If you’re not sure what UTE trays are, you’re in luck! In this guide, we’ll lay down all the facts about UTE trays, covering what they are, why you should install them in your UTE, how to choose one and more.

Why get a UTE tray? 

UTE trays are the flatbed at the back of your vehicle — ready to carry the tools of your trade. Think of it as your portable toolbox, giving you the space to load up whatever you need, from hammers to hardware and everything in between.

The full perks of a UTE tray for the hard-working tradie include: 

  • Easy organisation

Ever spent more time hunting for that elusive wrench in the back of your UTE than actually using it? Aluminium UTE trays put an end to the chaos. With built-in drawers and clever compartments, your gear stays organised like a well-oiled machine. No more rummaging through the clutter — find what you need when you need it. Your UTE turns into an organised oasis, saving you time and headaches on every job.

  • Customisation options

We get it — every tradie's gig is as unique as a thumbprint. That's where aluminium UTE trays shine. Want a specific UTE tray size to fit your gear like a glove? Done. Prefer an aluminium tray for its durability and weather resistance? You got it. With the freedom to choose elements like measurements, colour, material type and finish, your UTE becomes a canvas for your creativity. It's like having a tailor-made suit for your tools.

  • Heavy-duty lugging

Now, let's talk about the elephant in the UTE — weight. How much weight can a UTE tray carry, you ask? Well, aluminium UTE trays are the muscle cars of the UTE world. Load 'em up with your toolkit, materials and whatever else you need for the road — these trays can handle the heavy lifting. It's not just about the weight; it's about doing it efficiently and without breaking a sweat.

  • Unbeatable security 

Your tools are your livelihood, and the last thing you need is sticky fingers grabbing your gear. Aluminium UTE trays come with lockable units and toolboxes, turning your UTE into Fort Knox on wheels. No more unloading your tools every day to avoid theft — secure them in your UTE tray, and you're good to go. Having a UTE means that you save time and also gain peace of mind.

  • Weatherproof storage

Rain, hail or shine — tradies don't stop and neither do aluminium UTE trays. Built tough and designed to withstand the elements, these trays keep your gear protected from the onslaught of the Aussie weather. It's like giving your tools a cosy home that travels with you, ensuring they're in top-notch condition whenever duty calls.

Why choose aluminium UTE trays

When it comes to choosing the material for your trusty UTE tray, aluminium should be your top choice. Here's why:

  • Lightweight construction

With an aluminium UTE tray, you're not lugging around unnecessary weight. Aluminium is incredibly light, making your UTE more fuel-efficient and nimble. With less weight, you can reach more clients and do more work.

  • Matchless durability

Aluminium UTE trays are built to endure the Aussie elements like a seasoned outback explorer. Corrosion? Aluminium laughs it off. It's like having a UTE tray that's as rugged as the landscapes you conquer. This durability ensures your tray stays in top-notch condition, ready to take on whatever your workday throws at it.

  • Keeps you safe

Aluminium stands out as the superior material for UTE trays, especially when we talk about safety. Unlike steel, its non-magnetic properties make it a safer choice for transporting hazardous materials such as flammable gases or liquids. This inherent safety feature ensures that in high-risk work situations where avoiding magnetic interference is critical, aluminium UTE trays provide a secure and reliable option, minimising potential hazards for tradies on the road.

How to choose an aluminium UTE tray

Picking the perfect aluminium UTE tray is as crucial as choosing the right tool for the job. Let's break down what to consider when you're on the hunt for the ultimate workmate for your rig.

  • Size

First things first – size matters. Consider the UTE tray size that suits your gear. You want a tray that accommodates your tools like a custom-made suit — not too tight, not too loose.

  • Customisation choices

Every tradie has their own flair, right? Explore our customisation options that allow you to add a personal touch to your tray. Choose the length of the trundle drawer, select from custom powder coating options, or add a water tank to meet your specific requirements. These tailored features ensure that your tray is functional and a true reflection of your professional approach and needs.

  • Locks for security

Your tools are your treasure, so keep them safe. Opt for an aluminium UTE tray with lockable units or toolboxes. Whether it’s whale tail locks or t-locks, having one ensures that no stranger can just pull out your equipment.

  • Budget

Let's talk dollars. While you want top-notch quality, keep an eye on your budget. Aluminium UTE trays come in various price ranges, so find one that aligns with your financial game plan. A cost-effective choice that doesn't compromise on quality — that's the sweet spot.
