those of you that do construction and have storage boxes where do you keep them? do you have them all in your trailer or truck tool box or do you keep them in the garage and grab what you need for that day? i have a few tstak boxes and have them in my truck tool box but what to get more but then my tools won’t fit in my truck.April 10, 2014 at 6:45 pm #116629ThatkidPro
I keep everything in my basement and just put what I need in my truck everyday which most days is not much just a skil saw , nailer , extension cord air hose and my nail bags. The only time I need more is when I do side work and I just bring up what I need from my shop and load up my truck.April 10, 2014 at 6:47 pm #116630NJBuilderProBrick, NJ, 500,000 HAM

I keep most things at home in the garage. My daily use stuff fits in my truck bed box.April 10, 2014 at 7:19 pm #116644overanalyzePro
Our van keeps most regularly used tools and items in it. We are fortunate and have an awesome shop for everything else. There are opinions all over on this, but I can’t imagine using a truck for my primary work vehicle again, but it all depends on what type of work you do. If I had to start all over, the tool organizing systems that are out like the l-boxx or tough system would make it very easy to load and unload at the end of each day.

I keep the most used tools with me. And swap out the others as needed.

Between the trailer and the tool box on the truck the majority of my tools are with me. Some specialty tools (wet saws, concrete saw, etc) stay in the garage and get loaded up when I need them.

Where don’t I keep them. I have two L-BOXX’s in my living room right now, my 2 year old was playing with the 1A containers building towers. I think I might have lost them. I should be keeping them in garage, and I just take out what I need when I do need to pack out for a job which is rare for me nowadays.April 10, 2014 at 10:58 pm #116740redwoodPro
Mine are split between the tool trailer, the truck, the garage, and the storage room.

I’m able to get all my main tools in Festool containers and in my truck boxes. The systainers help considerably in compacting the room.April 11, 2014 at 2:34 am #116834hdproProUpstate, NY
I started out years ago loading and unloading every morning / night. That gets old in a hurry!
Now, most everything is on my trailer except for the bulky things I only use occasionally. Those get stored in the shop.April 11, 2014 at 9:07 am #116921AnonymousInactive
Most of my stuff is in my garage, I do keep a mechanics tool box in my truck and trailer. Also keep a little bit of everything in my camperApril 11, 2014 at 11:25 am #117010svensshuttersProColorado Springs, CO
I have enough tools that I can still load and unload the truck at the end of each day. When they are in the truck they go in a truckbox, and in the garage where there is room.April 11, 2014 at 10:24 pm #117161contrctrProroanoke, VA
