“If van theft statistics continue in this vein then insurers will have little choice but to increase premiums. Van owners should ensure that they either empty their vans or make them more secure.”
Mark Monterio, Insurance Expert
“It’s claimed a van is broken into and tools stolen every 23 minutes in the UK.
…there were 14,063 thefts of tools from vehicles in 2014/15, and that had risen to 22,749 in the year 2016/17. It’s a rise of two-thirds.”
BBC NewsBeat, 2017
“Security experts are warning that crooks are increasingly switching their attention from stealing luxury cars to commercial vehicles, in the hope of securing a double bounty – the van and its contents.”

How are they made?
Utilising advanced 3D modelling software to create innovatively designed secure storage boxes and toolboxes and to constantly develop improvements, TuffBoxes keeps itself ahead of the competition. Our production facilities are second to none and maintain our ability not only to provide quality products but also to keep our production costs down so that we can actually provide a quality British manufactured product at very similar prices to inferior manufactured products. You can rest assure that every Tuffbox manufactured has been CNC punched to exacting tolerances and then CNC folded to retain accurate fit of all the components used to create the final product.
All the boxes are fully MIG welded and then sent for paint preparation. All the boxes are fully phosphate washed to provide anti-corrosive protection but also to ensure that maximum paint adhesion takes place. Tuffboxes are then electrostatically powder coated and then oven cured at 190 degrees to provide our Tuffboxes with an excellent finish.
