Why choose our Side Tool Boxes?


Lightweight Materials

For many of the transformations we execute, minimising curb weight is essential to ensure the vehicle can legally carry the necessary people, equipment and loads. This is achieved through our Aluminium design.
Proven Products

Advanced technology

Advanced technology

We’ve embraced the latest technology to ensure client-approved designs are accurately executed in a time and cost-efficient way.

1. 3D scanner
Before design a fitout, we map the exact dimensions of the space we have to work with. We do this using a portable 3D scanner that delivers accurate, high resolution scans of vehicle interiors.
2. Computer-aided design (CAD)
An accomplished CAD designer will develop your design on-screen, informed by 3D scans, product knowledge and your requirements. This process allows you to see your vehicle transformation before it’s implemented.
3. Capacity planning system
Our capacity planning software allows us to accurately schedule vehicles for transformation, which speeds up turnaround time without compromising quality. When our facility is operating at full speed, we can transform up to 65 vehicles per week.
4. Product testing
In addition to importing proven components from global sources, we also develop our own products for vehicle transformation. These are fully tested using our in-house crash testing rig.

Expert project management

Project Management

We offer a full turnkey solution for vehicle transformation. This means you can skip the stress of managing different suppliers. From arranging signage and window tinting to GPS installation, we can organise everything.

Our dedicated customer service team will ensure your vehicle is ready on time. We have a designated contractor shed that allows all third-party contracts to complete additional work as the vehicle is undergoing its fitout. Not only does this save time, it eliminates additional transport costs and security risks.

If you have a preferred contractor, we can arrange a time for them to visit our site and complete their work. This will be coordinated at the appropriate stage of the fitout. During the fitout, you will be regularly informed of your vehicle’s status, so you know exactly what’s going on.

High Capacity, Quick Turnaround

High Capacity

Our Wiri facility was designed from the ground up to be the ultimate vehicle transformation destination.

At its western end, the Auto Transform facility contains our reception area, showroom, offices and staff communal spaces. The rest of the 3000m2 building is devoted to the precision processes of vehicle transformation and testing. On an average month, our fitout teams can transform 250 vehicles. Adjunct services, such as signwriting and automotive electrical work, are provided on the same site in a separate building.

Our ability to work on many vehicles at once ensures customers won’t have to wait weeks for their transformation. We have the fastest turnaround times in the New Zealand vehicle fitout industry and our ability to do everything on one site reduces the risk of transit damage to vehicles.
