Mobile tool storage recommendation

Ok, with moving house I'm not going to be having access to a workshop initially, so I'm going to have to go mobile with enough tools to keep my truck going, i was looking at those wheely type case storage chest stacks ("Milwaukee pack out"), but open minded, anyone recommend anything?

🙂 You are asking for recommendations, to conform to that request, I recommend you ensure the diameter of the wheels 'matches' the roughness of the ground cover, concrete, tarmac, etc.
If they don't 'match' you quickly find out how heavy a fully stocked mobile tool store is, as you lift it over the bumps!

Regards.

Yeah very good point its likely to be gravel I'm predicting. bigger wheels the better.

Butchered garden trolley and cantilever toolboxes, can't claim credit for this one as it's my friend Bob's but works really well.

My Halfords spanner kit finally gave way so dug out an old cantilever toolbox and OK could do with some organisation but as I'm flitting between my house, Surrey, Scotland and my parents farm it's amazing how much stuff you can fit in a cantilever toolbox. I've got the vast majority of my hand tools required for Land Rover work in a cantilever toolbox, the only bits that don't fit are a couple of the bigger pry-bars and breaker bar and the Milwaukee tools.

So just bought one of those chests in that link above, sgs didn't have any in stock (and not for months evidently) so its apparently a bit of a generic "design" of chest and found it under a different brand, hopefully get it by the weekend.
