Quality Ute Tray Solutions


Can any tray fit on any ute?

When using standard tyre sizes, most utes can handle a ute tray with tray dimensions of 1,900-2,000mm x 1,800-2,600mm. Changes may have to be made on under-tray toolboxes to fit in the available space, and extended tray lengths may cause clearance issues for tow bars. It is also important to consider tray weights in your calculations before you decide on a specific ute tray. If you have any doubts about our products fitting your ute, reach out to us, and we’ll be happy to confirm it for you!

How much do ute trays cost?

It’s not easy to provide a general estimate on steel and aluminium ute trays’ prices because the range of options for a new ute tray and its accessories are so incredibly varied. bUTE Total Tray Solutions offers a free quotation service that allows you to specify your requirements and get a more tailored quote. Try our convenient new quote form today and get the ball rolling!

What are ute trays?

Ute trays are robust metal trays that attach securely to the back of any suitable utility vehicle and allow you to carry loads and belongings. They can also be customised with removable accessories and different storage options to store and protect your trade tools or private possessions, both from the elements and from ‘wandering’ hands.

How do you make a ute tray?

Our custom-built aluminium ute trays and steel ute trays come in a variety of tray types that we modify and accessorise to your requirements. You can see the full range of stock-standard options on our site. All the manufacturing is done in-house by our team to an incredibly high standard.

How do you organise a ute tray?

How you decide to organise your ute tray is a personal choice that mainly depends on how you plan to use your vehicle. You could add a single toolbox or have two, one on each side. You can also fully or partially cover it with a ute tray canopy to protect tools or leave open areas for larger items or livestock as required. The choices are endless, so take a look at our ute tray designs for inspiration or get in touch with us for help.

Can you add a ute tray canopy?

Absolutely! We can create a custom ute tray canopy for your exact vehicle’s dimensions and add all the ute tray accessories you need to make it the perfect practical solution to your needs.

Do you do customised ute trays?

Effectively, all of our ute tray designs are customised according to your wishes, as your choice of ute accessories are added to either an aluminium ute tray or a steel ute tray, depending on your preference.

Moreover, at bUTE Total Tray Solutions, we make everything in-house. From ute slide trays and ute tray covers to all the ute tray accessories you can think of, we manufacture all the parts ourselves, from scratch. This allows for an unprecedented level of customisation, one that imported ute trays and accessories can’t match.

What are the features of your ute trays?

Aside from the rugged and durable finish, our ute trays feature a huge selection of ute tray accessories, from tool and dog boxes to under-tray sliding drawers and ladder racks. The options are comprehensive, and with bUTE you can purchase a total work package for your ute in one friendly, convenient location.

What are the available finishes of your ute trays?

All of our ute tray designs and products are first sandblasted, then zinc primed, and powder coated. This produces an incredibly hard-wearing finish that can be supplied in a range of matching or contrasting colours.

What is the difference between steel and aluminium ute trays?

Steel and aluminium ute trays offer distinct advantages, catering to various needs and preferences. Steel trays are renowned for their durability and strength, making them ideal for heavy-duty use and demanding work environments. They can withstand more weight and are tougher than aluminium trays but are heavier, which may impact fuel efficiency. On the other hand, aluminium trays are lighter, enhancing fuel economy and handling. They resist corrosion naturally, which is especially beneficial in harsh weather conditions or coastal areas, though they might not match the toughness of steel for extreme loads.

Do you install ute trays?

At bUTE Total Tray Solutions, we proudly install ute trays for our customers. Whether you prefer the robustness of steel or the lightweight efficiency of aluminium, our team is equipped to provide expert installation. We offer installations at dealerships within a 200-kilometer radius of Bendigo or directly at our factory in Epsom, Victoria, ensuring your ute tray is fitted with precision and care.
