I have had a past transaction with a bogus car parts and tools dealer. I was made to believe I was buying a popular brand tool set. But of course, I have been played for a fool. Some wrenches did not even last a month.

Where do you usually get your parts and tools at factory price? I'm a new mechanic expanding my business, and having high-quality items at affordable prices (compare to retail stores) to offer to my clients is something would be very helpful. :D

I hate dealers, this is why invest in buying bulk from known companies who offer excellent warranty and returns. Sometimes they would even let you consign the items. Depending on where you are, companies will have outlets and sales warehouses. That will be your go-to places.

Ditto on dealers.

I just placed an order on a couple of dozens wireless sensors from fensens.com they offer 35% discount on wholesale orders, just use the code "wholesale" but I guess you need at least 10 units in your cart to activate the deal.

I found a good FB group that sahres wholesale deals. :)

Here are several tools I use that have lasted for years:
* Sears craftsman tools are high quality.
* Snap-on tools are high quality but very expensive. https://store.snapon.com/Hand-Tools-C700010.aspx
* Mac tools are high quality. https://www.amazon.com/mac-tools/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i:aps,k:mac tools
