Innovative Ute Tool Box for Tradies
Why The Expedition134 Is The Best Tradie Tool Box in Australia
The Expedition134 is a heavy duty tool box that’s 100% Aussie made and owned. We know what it takes to make a tough and durable tradie tool box that will protect your tools and gear through rain, dust, hail, saltwater and that harsh Australian sun. The Expedition134 is also a fraction of the cost of traditional tradesman tool boxes, saving you more money to spend on tools and supplies.
Guided by Australian tradesmen, we’ve included crucial features to ensure this is one of the best ute tool boxes. These “you-beut” features include state-of-the-art injection moulding to enhance strength while reducing weight. We’ve also included locking points underneath each latch, weatherproofing, easy-access tie-down points and seamless stacking. To put it simply, we’ve created one of the most affordable, durable and convenient tool boxes in Australia.
The Expedition134 storage box is a weatherproof tool box with a custom seal design that protects your tools and equipment from dust, weather, insects and other elements. Unlike other tool boxes, it has no metal parts so it won’t rust or corrode in harsh environments or from saltwater spray.
This is a lockable tool box with multiple latches to secure the lid. We’ve also allowed for padlocks to be attached under the outer rim to stop the padlocks from rattling or rubbing against other gear you carry next to the box or scratching your vehicle.
It’s one of the most stackable tool boxes on the market. The lid of one box interlocks seamlessly into the base of another box. This way you can stack multiple Expedition134 tool boxes without worrying about them shifting around or toppling over.
The external tie-down points make the Expedition134 one of the most convenient ute tool boxes around. You can secure the tradie tool box to your ute while still easily opening and closing the lid to access your gear. We also have unique quick-release tie-down straps to secure your Expedition134 storage boxes when on the move.
You can also remove the straps if you want to take the tool box with you to your site. The lightweight design makes it a great portable tool box.
The Expedition134 tradesman tool box also comes in different colours. This allows you to colour-code your tools and equipment and identify which box you require at a glance.

Expedition134 was established in 2015 by Ben Kincade and Nic McKenzie, from a breakdown in the Simpson Desert. From this, an idea spawned, and we developed the Expedition134 storage boxes and quick release straps with more ideas in the pipeline. 2021 commences a new chapter for Expedition134 with Nic and his wife Kari continuing on the business.
As proud Aussies we make our gear right here in Australia and go out of our way to support other small Aussie businesses as well. Our Expedition134 storage boxes are made on the Sunshine Coast, and our unique, quick-release straps are custom made in the small rural Queensland town of Mareeba. Accompanying our own products are what we consider to be other quality made gear that we have used and proven ourselves. As we find more items that we love, this range may expand even further in the future.

Just took delivery of this product. Looks fantastic!
So good to be able to buy Aussie designed and made.
Well done guys - thank you
Had these delivered for a trip up to Dirk Harthog. Loved them. Ditched our old boxes that we had left and bought another expedition box due to the accessibility, tie down points and it doubling as a step ladder for the shorties accessing the roof rack.
Love it , it's tough , sturdy . Holds all my kitchen camp ware (butane stove, pans , cutlery, cups , essentials . I like it so much, Iâ€™m gonna get another. Itâ€™ll be easy as to tie down , stoked & Aussie made. Thanks so much!

Stanley socket set and screwdriver set, spanner roll (large), hammer (med) , 2x vice grips, Allen keys set, 2x bum wipe, a restraint bag (6x 500kg ratchets&straps), kings recovery kit, kingcrome 80amp jumper leads, a 200mm x 250mm x 150mm box with wheel nuts/studs, cable ties ect, a roll of paper towel, a large total tool breaker bar (diagonal) and wheel sockets. Plus little wires and stuff i find. Can recommend.
Excellent product, absolutely fit for purpose.
Super impressed with the quality of the boxes. Really like the way the tops and bottoms interlock for stacking. Looking forward to not having to clean the red dirt and dust out of everything the next time we go off road. Customer support has been outstanding as well. Weâ€™ll be buying more!!!
I recently purchased 2 of 55l expedition 134 boxes and well needless to say they are quite possibly the best crates/boxes on the market today. The seals on them are ridiculously strong. I tested them in a creek with all my clothes in one and submerged the box fully underwater, floated downstream and even tried to stand on it underwater only to open the lid back on land and everything was still bone dry. Not a drop made it in. Other amazing points are the fact it is 100% ozzie made and owned which makes me happy that i can support an australian business, they have a great range of colours to colour code all my stuff and the fact you can strap them down and still open the lid. These lads have really thought of everything and i now cant justify buying any other product alike due to how well these are made.
Oh and the customer service was on point as well. A higher star rating would be put if it went higher than 5.
Storage boxes are as described and very strong. Able to be sealed from water and dust. Very happy with this purchase.
They are that good we just keep buying them, now have 7. Makes camping and traveling a lot easier. Used for all purposes including water storage.
I was set up with these cracking expedition boxes. I have the set of colors and also the mixed lids so I can differentiate whatâ€™s in them. Could not recommend these enough. Tough as nails, easy to clean and being able to stack them, they take up heaps less room on the Ute. All my mates want these boxes. Bloody choice!
I bought 2 of your boxes recently, to use in our camper trailer.
For 11 years we have used (multiple ) plastic tubs bought from Big W or Bunnings. Multiple tubs because, of course, they don't last. Normal camping use has seen them crack, dust get in, even some mice in our food box once.
So I recently bought 2 of your boxes and we packed them, using 1 as a food box and the other as a kitchen/cooking gear box.
We have been on a 2 week trip to the Warrumbungle and Pilliga National Parks in Western New South Wales.
Not the roughest roads this trip, but all our camps were very dusty and the odd rodent or odd million flies.
In our boxes each time I found, food or kitchen stuff. That's it. No dust, insects or mice. How good is that! Plenty of dust on the outside of them.
The boxes also changed the way I packed the trailer. Much better! They fit in great.
We used them as seats at times, and as a footstool.
Great boxes. Very happy with them.
"The night before we tackled the border track I gotta say I'm absolutely loving these @expedition134 storage boxes. We were in a national park so we needed to bring our own firewood. I didn't want to drive 2 hours with wood strapped to the roof & I wanted to keep the weight as low as possible as my hilux is already too top heavy. So I loaded enough wood for 2 nights in these boxes and stacked them on my back seat without any mess in my car. They are incredibly durable so I had faith that even though they were fully loaded with wood they weren't going to break on my during the track. Highly recommend them"
I have a set of these boxes and from what I can say is WOW! Absolutely brilliant!! The external tie down points are a great idea, everything can be tied down on the ute and still easily access the contents in the tubs with out having to untie every strap!
I use mine for cooking gear as the cast iron hot plate and cooker can bounce around in the box and I know that the box isnâ€™t going to break on me like my previous cheap and nasty tubs! Highly recommend!
Great product. Best boxes I've had with great seals. Quick delivery. Totally recommend.
Up front, they seemed a little expensive when I looked at them on the website but I really liked the fact that they are Australian made so I went ahead and made the order and I am really happy I did. These are an excellent storage solution and premium quality. We’ve tried them out and they are definitely dust proof and securely stack on each other. We even use one as a step up to the bed in the camper trailer now so we don’t need the milk crate.
