Our Tool Sets Recommendations

We often get this question from customers: “What is the best tool set for the money?”

We are all becoming savvy shoppers who know the difference between inexpensive and cheap tools. When we hear, “inexpensive tools,” we think we’re getting a great value. When we hear, “cheap tools,” we think low quality. We associate “cheap tools” with subpar products from companies that provide no warranty, no customer service, where you have no one to turn to when the product corrodes or breaks. This is when buying something “cheap” can end up causing us headaches and more expenses.

To develop a reputable brand takes years of dedication and care.  At Apollo Tools we have spent over 20 years creating and refining quality products and focusing on our customers. We strive to give you a headache-free experience buying quality products that are guaranteed to last. We do not sell “cheap” tools.

What we do sell are “inexpensive” tools for the home repair enthusiast. Tool sets good enough for pros but geared toward the everyday user. And we are proud to back those tools and tool sets with a solid warranty. Should anything go wrong, not only at the time of purchase, but years from now, you will find us. We are located in the US and can send replacement parts from our warehouse quickly.

So, to the question, “what is the best tool set for the money”, we first ask, “What do you want to use it for?”

Here are some of our recommendations for affordable tool sets and tool kits that combine quality, warranty, and usability with great value.
