11591626_mChristmas is around the corner.  Are you still looking for gift ideas for a few of the people on your Christmas gift list?  We may not have the reindeers, beard or red suit, but the RJ Cox team does have the perfect gifts to help you spread Christmas cheer to your family and friends.

Below are a few of the items we offer here at RJ Cox which are certain to put a smile on someone’s face this year during the holidays.  Order your gifts online or by phone.  And for you procrastinators out there, order your Christmas presents by December 21 and we’ll make sure your items arrive by December 24.

For the off-roader on your gift list, a Black Rat Safety Recovery Kit is not only a great gift, but it also an extremely useful gift.  This kit is loaded.  Inside, you’ll find a 4WD recovery bag with reflective triangle, heavy-duty snatch strap, tree trunk protector with 10,000kgs B.S., 3.2 and 4.7 tonne WLL rated bow shackles, and much more.  Check out the RJ Cox website for the full list of items in the recovery kit from Black Rat.

While we are on the subject of off-road gift giving, you may also want to take a look at the Black Rat 4WD Nylon Heavy Duty Snatch Strap Kit.  This Christmas gift idea is a must for the avid off-roader.  And it could mean a few free, thank-you beers for you, if the recipient ever needs to recover their vehicle when it is bogged.  Give this snatch strap kit from Black Rat a look and contact RJ Cox with any questions you may have about it.

Another one of our best-selling recreational products, the Carver Surfboard Rack, is an affordable Christmas gift that any surfer will love receiving.  RJ Cox offers three models of surfboard racks to choose from in our inventory.  You can choose from the Carver CSR Mini, Carver CSR Max (for longboards up to 10’ 0”) and the Carver Scooter Moped Surf Rack.

One last gift idea we want to share with you in this blog post is another great item for the outdoor enthusiast.  Superiorpak Insulated Cool Bins are an excellent choice for keeping your beer cold and your food fresh when you are camping or off-roading.  These cool bins are impact-resistant and sealed with food-grade neoprene.  They will keep your food and drinks cool, fresh and safe no matter the situation.

These four Christmas gift ideas are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to great gift ideas from RJ Cox.  Take the time to review our selection of high-quality products.  If you don’t see something or need help with anything, make sure to contact us and a RJ Cox team member will be glad to help.



Step to It with RJ Cox Step Stools and Safety Steps

Step_Safe_BobbySearching for step stools or safety steps?  RJ Cox has you covered.  And because we – like many others – know that variety is the spice of life, RJ Cox gives you a wide-range of safety steps and step stools to choose from in our inventory.  Folding, rolling, jumbo, 2-step, 3-step, stainless steel: you’ll wear yourself out just going through the list of RJ Cox step stools and safety steps.

And if we took the time to introduce you to every piece in our inventory, there would have no time to train for Ironman competitions or to even enjoy a cold, refreshing beer.  Instead, we’re going to share some of favorites here.  But to be the nice, customer-friendly company we are, we’ll also give you a link at the end of the post to our main step stools and safety steps website page so you can peruse our inventory yourself..

Our Superiorpak Step Safe is a favorite among our customers and is used by a number of businesses like Woolworths, Coles, Liquorland, Bunnings, Drillers World and Target.  What makes these safety steps from Superiorpak so popular?  Well, contrary to popular belief, we can’t read minds.  But we do have a good idea that some of the features like the extra wide base platform, no-slip steps and 200kg maximum weight load carrying capacity help.  Or, it could also be the fact that RJ Cox offers quantity discounts on these Superiorpak Step Safe steps that make them so popular.

We know how organised and efficient many of you are with your space because of the popularity of our line of containers.  That’s why we know customers like you will love our Folding Safety Step Ladders.  Not only do these step ladders fold for easy storage, but they also come in 2-step, 3-step and 4-step sizes.  And don’t mistake these for your ordinary step ladders.  These folding safety step ladders are lightweight, but they are also constructed from heavy-duty tubular steel making them perfect for industrial use.

We’ve only scratched the surface with the two items mentioned here on our blog.  If you want to check out – and we highly-recommend that you do – our entire inventory, just point and click your mouse over to our Safety Steps and Step Stools page on the RJ Cox website.   It’s a safe bet that you’ll find something that matches your requirements for a safe climbing apparatus.

When the Camping Bug Bites Visit the RJ Cox Website

13242018_mDo you find yourself sitting in your office cubicle daydreaming of crackling campfires?  Have your co-workers nudged you from a fog as you stood, dazed, lost in thoughts of rushing rivers while the office building’s bathroom sink overflowed onto your dress shoes?  Do you have your computer set to go to a starry night screensaver after one minute of inactivity?

Well mate, it sounds like you have the camping bug really bad!  And we know what you’re thinking.  You’re fretting over the fact that you ex ran off with your favorite canoe.  You’re worried that your ice chest still hasn’t recovered from last year’s severe case of black mould.

Well, don’t worry one minute longer.  In fact, make plans now to take care of that camping bug by planning your next trip to the great outdoors.  Here at RJ Cox, well, we’ll take care of your camping gear needs.

Forget about that old canoe of yours.  Our Superiorpak E482 Pioneer Canoe 3.65Mt is just what the doctor ordered.  This canoe is manufactured from double wall polyethylene skin making it virtually indestructible and unsinkable.  It is the perfect canoe for taking two people and their gear up narrow waterways to secluded locations.  You’ll forget all about that old, beat up canoe and your ex, after you spend a weekend paddling with that new, special someone and your new Pioneer Canoe from RJ Cox.

To make sure all your important camping gear and camping supplies make it safely and soundly to your final destination, you’ll want to take a look at Spacecase Storage Containers and our Superiorpak Cool Bins.  RJ Cox has a number of options (from insulated to weatherproof storage) to choose from and a number of sizes within each of those storage options.  Here’s a quick look at a couple favorites.

Our Rubbermaid ActionPacker storage containers are as tough and durable as they come.  You can choose from 3 sizes.  Each size is easy to tie-down with bungee cords and every size comes with lockable latches for protecting your important gear.  Like all Rubbermaid products, these ActionPacker storage containers are made to last.

Unless you plan to forage, hunt and fish for your meals, then you need to take along plenty of food on your camping trip.  And don’t forget about the beer.  RJ Cox has a surefire way to ensure your food and drink stays safe and cool during transport and after your arrival.

Keeping your food and drink supply cool and fresh is never going to be an issue when you choose from one of our Superiorpak Cool Bins.  These cool bins are highly resistant to impact and extreme temperatures.  Plus, they are sealed with food grade neoprene and insulated with high-density foam.  Yes, they are mostly used in the food and food transportation industries.  But if you going to go with something, why not go with the best?

So stop daydreaming about your next camping trip.  Start making plans to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.  RJ Cox might not have everything you need.  But the things we do have will be the envy of all those you meet at your next campfire.

Protect Your Family and Property During Bush Fire Season

9773472_sWith the summer bush fire season upon us, it is important to have the right plans and the right tools to help protect you and your family.  One of the keys to your safety both before a fire impacts your property or while defending your property is access to water.  You will want to use this water to wet down your property and the area around your home as a bush fire approaches.  And, of course, you will need access to water in order to put out any embers or spot fires if you choose to stay and defend your home.

Here at RJ Cox, we are happy to offer two water tank options to our customers.  Both our 400L capacity Superiorpak Rotomould Versatile Utility Tank and our 1000L capacity Superiorpak Rotomould Versatile Utility Tank  are extremely helpful during bush fire season.  Both of these tanks are designed as firefighter tanks.  They fit in most trailers and utilities which makes them portable enough to both wet down and put out fires that pop up in outlying areas of your property.

These Superiorpak Fire Fighter Utility Tanks easily connect to hoses as both models feature 38mm threaded brass inserts.  Our 400L capacity utility tank is also available with a 20mm threaded brass insert.  The size of the 400L tank is 1070 x 900 x 600mm while the 1000L tank is 1400 x 1250 x 820mm.  Both of these tanks can also be used to store and transport fertilisers, chlorine-based cleaners, insecticides and other non-dangerous fluids.

Whether you purchase a water tank from RJ Cox or not, please make sure you and your family do take adequate safety measures in preparation for bush fires.  If you do not have a plan in place for how you will handle an emergency situation, make one now.  The Australian government’s Bush Fire Survival Plan is a good place to start.

Do you have a bush fire survival plan?
