Great Box and Great Service

I researched long and hard before buying tool boxes. There are less costly boxes out there and there are more costly boxes out there. I can’t speak to the more expensive boxes, but compared to other boxes that generally cost less this box is very well built. All the welds are nice, the finish is consistent all over. The latch system seems to be robust and the push button release works well. I viewed this purchase as an investment rather than an expense. The biggest thing here is the service from Elite truck- I had accidentally ordered mismatched boxes. They called me to let me know and quickly got the right boxes on order. Everything came on a pallet and survived the trip in good shape. I’m definitely a fan of Weather Guard and Elite Truck!

This was the first time ordering from Elite Truck. I was very happy with the ordering process and talking to them on the phone. I Talked to Dave! He was awesome on the information that I needed.
This was our 2nd upfit here at our municipality. I will be using them in the future. The pricing was very good from all my other research I did in finding the right toolboxes.
