Do I really need an all-in-one tool kit?
  • No, you do not need it.
    • In fact, it is better if you buy separately so that you can get quality ones and just the ones that suit your household needs.
    • If you have time and know some basics, we recommend buying them separately and put together your own kit.
  • Yes, you would need one when
    • you don’t know much about which one is for what
    • you live in an apartment or home by yourself or with family
When I do not need a kit?
  • If you share the living space as with a roommate
  • If you live at that place temporarily
  • Something like when you are just beginning your career or in college

In most cases, buying an all-in-one tool kit is the best option and cost-effective

All-in-one tool kit vs. self made custom tool kit
  • In most cases, it is better to start with an all-in-one tool kit.
  • It is the best value for money – you get more tools for the same price.
  • You get a very decent combination of tools also.
  • Even if you already have the basic tools but find it difficult at times to do household maintenance, then a tool kit the next step.
  • You can start adding missing tools, if you are into doing a lot of house maintenance stuff on your own for whatever reason, like a hobby or a good way of exercising.
