Field Services Toolbox

3 key benefits of field service tool boxes

Whatever industry you’re in, being able to carry your tools everywhere you go can make your life a whole lot easier. There are a few ways you can go about this, but not many of them are as effective as field service tool boxes. Also known as technician tool boxes, gullwing canopies, tool box canopies, or service canopies, these tool boxes are a must-have for all your service bakkies.

In this blog, we’re going to explore what these vehicle-mounted accessories are and how they can benefit your business.

What is a field service toolbox?

Field service toolboxes are customisable canopies that you can easily mount on your bakkie’s load box. They offer a world of convenience for workers, allowing them to travel with all their tools – day, night, rain, and shine.

Usually made from aluminium, field service tool boxes can be customised to meet your specific storage needs. For the most part, gullwing canopies are mobile workshops that can help make any job a walk in the park; after all, there aren’t any rules or limits to what you can do with a canopy.

With the aluminium service canopies offered at Marven Equipment, you can customise your tool box to match your bakkie’s aesthetic – it doesn’t stop there though. You can add several optional extras to your tool box to give you a complete field service kit customised to your liking.

Let’s take a look at how the following service providers can benefit from gullwing canopies.

Field service tool boxes for handymen

Handymen need to be quick, versatile, and mobile to make decent a living. More often than not, a flatbed bakkie and a portable/foldable tool box will sort you out; but when you’d like to accomplish more by expanding on your handy-bility – or your service offering – a small field service tool box will do you a world of wonders.

With a gullwing canopy, you can add:

  • Compact ladder racks for at-height projects;
  • Long drawers to increase your storage space for all your screwdrivers and power tools;
  • LED lights inside the doors for visibility late in the day, and many more!  







Likewise, service canopies can also benefit contractors who need as much storage space as possible on their vehicles.

Gullwing canopies for contractors

When it comes to the construction industry, field service tool boxes are must-haves. It’s no secret that contractors carry more tools than the average service provider; erecting and repairing buildings, trucks , vehicles , mining equipment and more , isn’t possible without the right toolkit. Toolbox canopies are perhaps the most effective ways contractors can transport their tools between sites, projects, or piece jobs.

These canopies come standard with white paint and are topped with a clear coat. With our gullwing canopies, you get secured tool boxes featuring sturdy push locks that are keyed alike, as well as inside and outside rubber linings.
