Been using Frank Howard tools for well over 10 years or more always found them very helpful especially Graham who always give good honest advice , have a very good stock of tools and fixings for almost any trade at a great competitive price even matching others or better . But for me its knowing they are a reliable company and friendly bunch , not just at the desk on the frontline but also telephone sales , i was working on a job out near Dunmow way , and my tool failed on my last bit of work irs was nearly 5pm i desperately need a set of new carbon brushes for my tool to get the job done , they had the part , paid for it and the girl in the office put it in a bag and hid it outside for me to collect after hours at my risk but can't tell you how grateful i was to get the job done on this occasion got me out of trouble . not making this up a great bunch and great team . completely recommend them thanks Karl Collins Revive Stoneworks

Ordered a drill and impact driver in a combi case. On arrival the security tag was torn, opened the case and the impact driver was missing. Emails to this company and online chat is a waste of time. Rang them and they said they'd look into it. To send photos which I've done. Also got evidence of the weight on the courier package which is under what it's supposed to be.
