UK Tool Buying Guide & Reviews

"We offer you our best advice for buying tools in the UK. We do a lot of detailed research and look very closely at online buyer ratings and reviews. We then summarise those reviews which hopefully saves you time and gets you the important information quickly."

This "Tool Advice" website is written for people living in the United Kingdom(UK) and Ireland. The main purpose of this website, is to help people who want to buy tools and get the best possible value for their money. On this site we will include the best power and electric tools reviews, as well as the best hand tools reviews.

A good way to do this is to include the top 5 rated tools in a range of categories. We will then also include individual reviews, on each of the tools that we place in those top 5 lists. All of our tool lists are ranked by what is termed buyer rating.

We have collected and read all of the buyer reviews, and also looked at how real life buyers rate the tools that they have bought. So rather than you having to search around all of the individual reviews, we have summarised those to save you the trouble.
