When you’re fresh out of auto mechanic training and looking for your first automotive technician job, you’ll no doubt be looking to start building your tool supply. Many shops require you to have your own tool set, which means you’ll need to know the best sources for high-quality auto mechanic equipment that will last under heavy-duty use.

If you own a repair shop, you also want a convenient resource for your shop tools so you can easily order equipment online and have the products delivered right to your business. Here we take a look at the 10 best places to buy mechanic tools and equipment online.

1. Snap-on

No need to wait for the sales truck to come around these days – Snap-on tools are available online. The company has been around for nearly a century, and is still one of the top choices of mechanics. They’re not cheap, but are durable, long-lasting, and come with a replacement warranty.

Shop for tools at SnapOn.com.

2. Mac Tools

Like Snap-on, Mac Tools are made in the U.S.A. and are a preferred brand of both those who work in automotive technician jobs and those who repair cars as a hobby. Online shopping is available, and the tools come with a lifetime warranty. They’re also slightly more affordable than Snap-on tools.

Shop for tools at MacTools.com.

3. Amazon Business

Formerly AmazonSupply, the online marketplace giant can actually be a great place to get brands like SK (SuperKrome) mechanics tools, Craftsman, Husky, and more. Free shipping options make Amazon even more appealing.

4. Grainger

Aside from a comprehensive selection of automotive repair tools from brands like Wright, SK, and Proto, Grainger also support corporate social responsibility, has a Supplier Diversity program, as well as a green resources program.

Shop for tools at grainger.com.

5. Sears

While the production of Craftsman tools has been on a shift toward overseas, causing some mechanics to choose other brands, the Sears marketplace is still a good source of name brand mechanics tools at affordable prices. Plus, they support their third party marketplace retailers by stepping in if you have an issue with your buying experience, going so far as to refund your money if a resolution can’t be reached.

Shop for tools at Sears.com.

6. Tool Source

This website is a good resource for a range of mechanic tools and equipment, featuring mid-grade brands like SK and Husky. Tool Source orders over $99.01 are eligible for free shipping.

7. Armstrong

Geared toward government and aerospace applications, Armstrong tools are durable and reasonably priced. They come with a lifetime warranty, and are made in the U.S.A. by a company which has been around since 1890. We have to admit, it’s hard not to respect a company with an 88-tooth ratchet.

Shop for tools at ArmstrongTools.com.

8. GoPro Tools

GoPro Tools is an industrial automotive supplier features brands like Williams (a division of Snap-on), Craftsman, and Ingersoll. They also carry parts and equipment such as gear motors, air motors, and compressors.

9. GearWrench

As mid-grade mechanics tools go, GearWrench has a solid reputation. The prices are affordable, which is great for a mechanic right out of automotive technician school, and they carry a range of automotive specialty tools like oil filter wrenches, engine tools, service kits, and brake and wheel tools.

Shop for tools at GearWrench.com.

10. ASE Deals

When your shop is in need of heavy-duty equipment like lifts, compressors, tire changers, and other large-scale products, ASE Deals has nearly anything you need. From two- and four-post lifts, to fluid and exhaust system service equipment, the wide selection of top brands is easy to navigate and many items include free shipping. The company has been in business since 1996 and has served various industries plus theme parks and movie production companies.

Whether you’re just starting out in your mechanic career or you own multiple shop locations, you’ll need easy and efficient access to the top names in automotive repair and service tools. While each tech eventually develops his or her own preference for a specific brand or type of tool, this list should give you a solid starting point for reliable sources to buy your automotive tools and equipment online.
