Advantages to shopping with an Authorized Internet Retailer:
Peace of mind
You are assured that the tool you purchase is a brand new or a certified reconditioned top quality tool, fully backed by the manufacturer. Some manufacturers will only honor the warranty for a tool purchased from an Authorized Retailer.
Tools purchased from Authorized Internet Retailers in the U.S. are intended for the U.S. market. Items purchased from non-certified retailers may not be UL listed and could be unsafe. They may also lack accessories provided with U.S. market products or be difficult to find parts for should they need repair.
Information from an Authorized Retailer is the latest information provided by the manufacturer. Training and support are given to Authorized Retailers to ensure the best and most knowledgeable service is available for customers.

What is an Authorized Internet Retailer?

A large selection of tools from that manufacturer.
Tools-Plus.com has a selection of over 5000 tools from the top tool manufacturers.
Having the majority of orderable items in stock, unless they drop ship from the manufacturer.
With both our store and warehouse space Tools-Plus is able to keep a massive stock of merchandise. The majority of the orders placed with us can be filled and packed up well before the carrier shows up to take them out at the end of the day.
