Tips for Getting Good Deals on Your Tools
The internet has revolutionized the DIY trade. Not only can you get your hands on a vast range of materials, you can now easily get expert advice, too. And if you are shopping online, it’s a good idea to start off with an understanding of the way retailers work. Often, a little knowledge is all that stands between you and the best savings .
Combo tool packages can be a great idea
DIYers with some experience under their belt often turn their noses up at combo tool packages. Buying a set with a drill, circular saw and planer in one package seems to them, to be strictly for the novices.
In truth, though, these combo packages can make a great deal — you can get to save as much as $100 on a set of three tools and more on bigger packages. One reason for the savings is simply that manufacturers usually offer discounts to move larger quantities of merchandise. The other reason is that tools in combo sets often share components. For instance, if you have a set of three cordless tools, they may give you just one charger. You save by not paying for the other two chargers.
Save by ignoring the model number
Manufacturers and retailers often work together to make sure that no two chains ever get the same model numbers for any given item. If Bosch wishes to supply the exact same drill to both Lowe’s and Home Depot but wants to help both stores charge different prices without letting you know, they might supply the same drill to each retailer with different model numbers.
If you just go by model numbers when comparison shopping, then, you’ll never know if it’s the exact same product and you’ll never be able to compare prices effectively. You will often pay tens or even hundreds of dollars more when you can’t make effective comparisons.
What you need to do, then, is to compare tools or anything else based on specifications, rather than model numbers. Often, such meaningful comparisons work out very well. You often get to notice when one store’s models have slightly better specifications than what another store has. You would never notice these subtle differences if you just shopped by model number.
Take advantage of their lumber services
If you’re buying wood, it’s a great idea to get all your measurements down and then place an order at the store. They will cut everything to your exact specifications for very little money or completely free of charge. You’ll save yourself a great deal of trouble and will have an easier time carrying the wood home. To make sure that you don’t order pieces that are too small, you simply need to order them a little larger than needed so that you can make precise cuts on-site.
