While toolboxes are fine to store your tools at home, they are not ideal when you have to travel a lot. This is where tool bags come into play as the better alternative. Here are a few reasons to consider tool bags.
Easier to carry around
Tool bags serve the same purpose as toolboxes. However, they allow you to quickly get on the move and still have everything on you. While it’s true that it’s trivial to place a toolbox in a trunk, it gets rather complicated if you have to travel by train or bus.
Makes less noise
Most toolboxes are made of plastic or metal. Tool bags are made out of garment. Couple that with elastic bands for your tools, and you have a very silent way to carry your tools. This makes tool bags ideal for people doing interventions in offices or other places where silence is appreciated.
Can be cheaper
Of course, prices of both tool boxes and tool bags vary greatly. But in general, tool bags are less expensive. This means that you can have several tool bags to better organise your tools. One idea would be to separate them by category.
Easier to store
Being made out of garment, means that tool bags can be easily folded and stored when they are no longer used. Tool boxes on the other hand, are quite complicated to store and often end up being a dust magnet in a corner.
