Looking for information about Sonic Tools? See some of our most commonly asked questions below.
Where are Sonic's tools made?
Sonic is a Dutch-based company with facilities in Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, and the United States. We design and manufacture tools throughout Europe and Taiwan, focusing on the ideal locations to produce the highest quality tools.
How does Sonic compare to other professional tool brands?
According to independent testing, our products are of equal or better quality to the professional tool truck brands.
Does Sonic have tool trucks?
We do business a bit differently. Think of us like the Amazon Prime of tool companies. We offer a professional grade tool direct to consumers, instead of several layers of distribution. Your phone becomes your "tool truck." Because of this, we're able to offer significantly lower prices and more consistent service.
Are your tools sold in any stores?
No. Our tools are available on our website and through our sales team that can be reached by phone at 844-407-6642 or email at email@example.com
Does Sonic have a military discount?
Yes, 15% off your purchase (some exclusions apply*) Call our team to use your discount 844-407-6642
SONIC FOAM SYSTEM
What is the Sonic Foam System?
The Sonic Foam System is Dual Density EVA foam with CNC-machined cut outs for each tool. Every tool has its own marked spot. The Sonic Foam System is proven to help save you time and money by making tool retrieval faster and reduce that amount of misplaced tools.
Will the foam system work in my current toolbox?
You will first need to measure the drawers in your existing toolbox. The dimensions for our foam system are as follows;
SMALL - 7.5" x 14.5"
MEDIUM - 22.5" x 14.5"
LARGE - 29" x 17"
XD - 29 x 22.5"
Can I get custom foam made?
We do offer custom foam services with a minimum order quantity. Please contact our team with any questions regarding custom foam sets.
What is the Inventory Control Book?
Our inventory control books contain sheets for each Sonic Foam System included with the toolbox you ordered. Each sheet contains a layout of the drawer, including part numbers and locations. Inventory control books help you audit your toolbox to ensure you are not missing a tool.
Can I buy just the foam?
No, at this time the Sonic Foam System comes as a set and each foam tray is specifically cut to match the Sonic Tool.
How are toolboxes shipped?
All packages to big/heavy to ship via UPS, including toolboxes, cabinetry, and XD toolsets will ship through a Freight Carrier. This is noted during checkout when choosing the shipping method "Per weight carrier (fixed)"
Standard freight shipping includes free curbside delivery and lift gate service. This complimentary service is designed to expedite the process of unloading your package.

This process guarantees you receive a new product quickly. Use our Warranty Exchange Portal to submit any requests: 24-Hour Online Tool Exchange.
