What are Flatbed Toolboxes?
Flatbed Toolboxes are storage toolboxes mounted to the side of a flatbed trailer to provide haulers with protection against theft, additional storage space for hauling supplies, and easy access to equipment on the road.
Flatbed Toolboxes are typically mounted with triangle mounting brackets on the side of the trailer bed and can be made from either steel or aluminum. These toolboxes can come in a variety of finishes and sizes to match the style and needs of your trailer.
One of the most common reasons for tarp replacement is not damage, but theft. Using our Flatbed Toolboxes, you can prevent thieves from stealing your equipment and costing you money. Additionally, you can store your tarp in our toolboxes to prevent wear and tear from weather conditions when you aren’t hauling a load.
What makes a Flatbed Toolbox?
There are several key components to these toolboxes, which we define as:
Insulated Rubber Lining
Our toolboxes come with insulated rubber gaskets that keeps your toolbox water-tight and protects your tools from the harsh conditions on the road. Whether you are hauling in rainy or snowy weather, your equipment will stay dry for when you need it most.
Lightweight Aluminum Build
Our toolboxes come with a lightweight, durable aluminum build to ensure that you get the most protection for the least weight on your trailer. Aluminum toolboxes will save you money with reduced fuel costs from a lighter strain on your trailer.
Triangle Mounting Brackets
In order to use a Flatbed Toolbox, you must also find the right mounting brackets to attach it to your bed. We offer Triangle Mounting Brackets that are perfect for attaching our toolboxes to your flatbed trailer.
Our toolboxes come with either t-shaped locks or cam-latch locks to provide you with the most protection. These locks will prevent the toolbox doors from opening due to movement on the road or someone trying to pry it open.
Why choose a Flatbed Toolbox?
There are many benefits to choosing a Flatbed Toolbox, including the money you will save protecting your equipment from thieves and harsh weather conditions. Toolboxes are the best way to provide easy access to tools on the road, so you can stay on the road longer and get the most value from your equipment.
Theft is one of the leading causes of equipment costs for flatbed haulers. Toolboxes provide an easy solution to theft that will save you money with fewer equipment replacements. We guarantee that you will see an immediate return on investment after purchasing a flatbed toolbox.
