Where to buy tools online

Where to buy tools online – we look at the options

You might be thinking of the obvious answer… Amazon?

And Amazon has many benefits for the consumer, such as next day delivery, an easy-to-use platform and a huge variety of tools available.

However, it appears that Amazon’s clever algorithms will use your recent search history on the platform to decide what products to present you with, so you are left in a consumer bubble only seeing some ranges of tools.

Let’s face it, a real DIY’ers dream is scrolling through a tool corral at your local store, right?

Well, you can do just that online direct through manufacturing websites (and it comes with a lot of benefits too)

First and foremost – are you team red (Milwaulkee)  or yellow (*Dewalt)?

Either way, you have a huge range of options directly from both of their websites.

Let’s take a look…


Shopping directly through the Milwaukee tools site is just the same as shopping at your local DIY store – if not even better.

In recent years, innovation and their move to the cordless space have proved worthy, as Milwaukee is now one of the leading giants in the tool industry. 

If you want the best of the best, and an impressive tool collection that’ll make your friends jealous then shop with these guys.

Their website has an enormous range of products, easily presented to you with a neat menu that means you’ll never miss out on any range of tools again. The best part about it is that there is an option to search tools by trade, so you can save time by looking at tools relevant to your work.

There’s even a store locator feature that allows you to check, by location, the nearest store that you can collect your desired tools in – saving you time, money and a whole lot of stress!

It acts very similar to Metabo, another leading powerhouse in the tool industry.

Metabo’s website has an extensive range for professional users focused on the competence areas of the metal industry and metal trades, construction trades and renovation.

Their website will be the first place to find out about new product releases, take advantage of their loyalty scheme and benefit from the 3-year warranty promise*.
