Buyer’s Guide for Ute Drawers

Edmund Brunetti

Visitors: 10

If you own a utility vehicle, van or 4WD that you are using for work, you are probably keeping a number of tools and other possessions in there. It is a sensible decision, as part of the usefulness of such vehicles is that you can store so much in them.

But storing items in a haphazard way can create more problems. It means that you are using space inefficiently. And instead of having a massive vehicle where you can fit a lot of people and keep many possessions, you end up with a messy vehicle that does not offer as much utility as it should.

Utility Vehicle Drawers

By investing in custom ute drawers or pre-designed van drawer systems, you can change all that. These drawers are great, as you can mount them into your vehicle without needing to do extensive work on the vehicle. They’re strong too, with a 1 tonne load capacity on top.

Roller Bearing Units

Investing in roller bearing units is a great idea, especially if you own a wagon or ute. These units can easily fit between 125 to 150 kg worth of items in each drawer, while you can set up dividers if you need more than one section.

Since they are rollable and lockable, you get the best of both worlds. Your items are completely protected from the elements, they are 100 percent secure and they are easy to access.

Each time you need an item, you will unlock your drawer, roll it out and take out the item. And then you can put it back when you are done. Even if someone comes across your vehicle and is thinking about stealing an item, they are never getting into those drawers.


If you have heavy and large equipment that you want to place in the open back area of a ute, then you will need slides. These are flat bases that you can secure into the space. Then you can place your heavy items into those slides.

The usefulness of the slide is that you are able to secure those heavy items, ensuring they will not be falling around in the back of the ute or 4WD. The slides will have dividers and other accessories that you can use to ensure you have a properly enclosed space for each large item.

Single Drawer Units

When you are investing in custom ute drawers or van drawer systems, think about the types of items that you need to store. If you have many smaller tools and accessories that you must keep in your vehicle, then you will benefit from having these drawers.

They will fit perfectly in the back of your vehicle, whether it is the back of the van or the open bed of a ute. Top companies in Australia manufacture these drawers with weather proof material, meaning they can survive water and extreme temperatures.

If you are tired of your utility vehicle feeling like a dump where you toss one item after another, then you need to invest in drawers and storage containers.
