The benefits of plastic toolboxesPlastic tool boxes have several benefits. Firstly, they are very durable because they are made of high-quality materials that can withstand impacts, scratches and the weather conditions and elements. Plastic storage boxes do not rust and are corrosion-resistant. Another great advantage of plastic storage boxes is that they weigh much less than steel boxes. In addition to reducing the truck’s fuel consumption, this can also serve to increase its payload. Plastic storage boxes are thus an ideal accessory for trucks, trailers, and other vehicles. Tilbox has a wide range of plastic storage boxes and mounting hardware.
What is a plastic storage box?A plastic tool box is a storage box that is mounted on or under the vehicle chassis. Vehicles include a truck, company vehicle, van, or trailer. A plastic storage box can be a real asset on all of these vehicles. These plastic toolboxes are specifically designed to safely store tools, equipment and other items. In many cases, these are tools and materials that can come in handy on the road, such as tensioning devices, hoisting equipment, personal protective equipment, or tools for carrying out repairs and maintenance.
The right size plastic storage boxes with lid
All plastic storage boxes with lids have one or more handles to open and close the box. The handles are fitted with a lock to ensure security and protects the contents from theft and damage. The size of a plastic storage box with lid depends on several criteria, including the dimensions of the vehicle, the space occupied by the tools or equipment, and the available space on or under the vehicle chassis. You therefore need to measure the vehicle to determine where the plastic storage box can be mounted. Take the dimensions of the storage box into account, including its width, length and height, and make sure it fits in the desired location under the vehicle.
