How to Get A Good Quality Mechanic Tool Set With Discount

There are various types of tools on the market for different kind of jobs, such as construction, plumbing, or automotive repair. I am an automotive mechanic for many years. In this article, for those who plan to buy tools from the beginning, I'd like to show how to get a good quality mechanic tool set with great discount.

First of all, you need basic tools, like screwdrivers, sockets, wrenches and ratchets. Because they are basic, you will easily find a lot of sets that include all of these. It is very good idea to buy these type of sets. You might think that some sets have too many pieces for you to use, but you never know if you don't need them until you do a job. For an auto repair, both of standard and metric 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" drive sockets, ratchets and extensions are most likely necessary. You need both standard and metric sockets or wrenches because you need slightly smaller size sockets or wrenches when you loosen head-slipped bolts. It happens all the time.

And most importantly, when you buy a set it's cheaper than costs of tools you buy individually. Most reputable tool brands have life-time warranty on these basic tools. Please make sure about warranty, not only whether tools have warranty or not, but also how you will be able to get replacements. If you work in a mechanic garage, tool trucks come once a week. they exchange broken tools for new ones or fix them at the time. But for do-it-yourself-ers or Sunday mechanics, probably you can't catch these trucks. So It's better to have tools of brand which has good warranty policy and you can have them replaced or fixed at local retailers in your neighborhood.

After you buy and realize that some pieces are not necessarily for sure, you can sell them online. On eBay, you will see many transactions of mechanic tools. There is huge demand out there. But remember, they are only tools from reputable brands. So, It is very important to choose good quality mechanic tool set by reputable tool brand, because of not only quality issues but also the fact you can easily sell unnecessary tools with reasonable price.

Later on, you might be going to need more tools, like torx and hex sockets, specialty wrenches or pliers. And the same here, as you bought basic tools, buy a set, not piece by piece.

Everyone says "tools are expensive", "you need large investment to get complete and good quality mechanic tool set". But keep in mind that tool sets are much cheaper than tools sold individually and you can sell some pieces you don't need or use, or somehow you have duplicates. If you keep buying and selling until you get a complete and good quality mechanic tool set. you will have saved a lot of money.
