There are many advantages and disadvantages to buying used tools online and hopefully this will help.
- Charges & Costs
Photo’s: The one thing with buying old tools online is how deceptive photos can be as well as being helpful. Often you will find missing details that are important to a tools function or a complete 360 degree view. There is also the aspect where lighting can sometimes hide faults so when buying do not rely on this part only. However, here at Tooltique we try and give as complete detailed view as possible and when there are any doubts you can be assured we have covered all aspects that need to be seen.
Descriptions: Often descriptions are used as a sales tactic whereby the item is built up in aid of persuading people to purchase. We do the complete opposite here and would rather understate something by giving it a brief description pointing out any minor faults, however you can be assured everything we sell is fit for purpose, especially if it’s a usable item.
Charges and Costs: When buying online you should consider some important aspects are different to buying directly from a physical seller who stands in front of you. It’s highly likely you will have traveled to get there and have costs involved as well as your time. When buying online you are generally sitting in your own environment and to view items the seller has additional work to present their wares to you such as images, descriptions, packaging and shipping. This is often why prices online will be slightly higher however your hidden costs will be lower and should be factored in.
Availability: Buyers have an additional benefit of browsing regularly to see what’s new without any costs and this also help’s with checking availability of specific sort after items. It a big advantage over traveling from time to time to your regular haunts which also has an end result on the costs eventually paid.
Service: Buying from a used tool dealer who takes this seriously really does add to your overall experience it will also add confidence to your buying habits. We feel our service is unsurpassed and work hard to ensuring parcels for example will arrive safely, saving you the buyer lots of time with returns due to damage.
Our aim is to bring professionalism, reliability and good used tools consistently to buyers and hope to continue to gain new customers who value their time and understand why we try so hard to bring convenience to craftsmen’s homes.
