Skip eBay, and search on Craigslist. If you are looking for a particular Snap-On set up, let me know. I've done a ton of searches for myself and friends, always get awesome deals. I can tell you what's a good deal and not. Also, don't limit your search to a small local area..Sometimes a 4 hour drive can mean getting the best deal.So I've been cruising around looking at used toolboxes. I need something freestanding, preferably with wheels and drawers. I was thinking of buying a used Snap-On toolbox on eBay.
Lol The customer will almost never see the tool box, and the box itself don't make a difference. Most customers wouldnt know the difference between a snap-on, Mac, Matco, Crafstman, husky, or no name.IMHO, A Snappy or Mac box is for a mechanic, the customer wants to see a professional box.
It's not bad as long as it's in good condition. Check them out good, look inside and under the bottom for any rust before you buy.Great advice!
do people think this is a good deal?
The name means quality draws that move well and will take a crap ton of weight. If you want to spend the money then by all means go Snap-on Mac or Bluepoint. I know the number of an awesome snap-on guy. If you want I can check with him for used boxes. Cheap boxes are just that.I have a Craftsman on wheels with bearings on drawer slides. Traded the seats from an old Bronco for it. The name means nothing, it is the storage space that counts.
