In some rural areas automotive special tools can be hard to find. I use to buy all my specialized equipment from famous name mobile suppliers. Like everything related to automobiles the tool truck business has also changed and it’s not for the better.
The fierce competition in the business has forced our local mobile suppliers to reduce their stock. What this means is, if I want something, they have to order it. This could take weeks of waiting for something that I need immediately.
In order to save money and time I’ve been ordering my tools from either Amazon or Ebay recently. Both of these suppliers offer name brand car repair tools for less money then you can find locally, with the added benefits of internet ordering and next day shipping on some items. You can see some examples on the page about special front end tools.
Directly below you will find some popular specialized tools available on the Amazon website. If you scroll down just a little more you’ll find a widget containing Lisle brand name automotive tools. Tip: The exact equipment you need can be found by using the search box at the top of the widgets.
Example: Type in “Cooling System Tools” and pages of specific tools are displayed. Hover over an item title and an exploded view might pop up to provide a complete description. Sometimes special tools are just a convenience to make the task easier. You will also find times when a certain tool is required to complete the job.
Some do it yourself driveway car mechanics demand the best and want name brand auto repair tools just like they see in professional shops.
A lot of people think that Amazon is just a book supplying company. This is how they started out 15 years ago, but what they have actually built is the strongest online shopping area that I have ever seen.
As far as their automotive special tools, they are supplied by Name Brand Manufacturers and large companies. They can also be next day shipped directly to your door. Who knows, maybe by the time you read this the drone delivery program will be in place?
Nevertheless, I’ve never had any problems receiving or returning items. You’ll notice a rating system applied to each tool when you hover over it. These are reviews from actual people that purchased and used these tools.
I’ve found these reviews to be helpful and honest. If you see an auto repair item that you are interested in, go ahead and click on it and read the reviews plus see additional pictures of that particular item.
