We have a huge range of workshop tools available, for the home mechanic as well as the professionals.

Ok, so most of us own a screwdriver and a hammer, but isn't it annoying when your screwdriver isn't the right size, or you simply don't have the right tool for the job?
Whether you're a professional wanting a new set of tools, a budding mechanic looking to start off your collection or simply want to be prepared for jobs around the house or simple car maintenance, a tool kit is the easiest way to set yourself up.
We've got a whole range of tool kits, from the usual spanners and screwdrivers to hex keys and 95 piece tool kits which include screwdrivers, adjustable wrenches and so much more!
Have a mooch around our site and when you find the tool kit you want from brands such as Laser and Phaze. Use our Click and Collect option which lets you pick up your items from your nearest store, or spend over £30 and we'll deliver to your home for free. Easy peasy!
