I wish!



Everytime I see the Halfords 2 for 1 or bundle offers I'm soooo tempted!

I need to get myself one of these trade cards.
I have most. if not more of what's in the modular trays.
I like them because it satisfies my growing OCD about having things in a place where you can put your hand on them straight away.
I will pass on stuff that I duplicate to son, sil etc as they have enough to spend their money on with kids etc so it all helps them.
Mrs holdi helps out, as I've made a space in the garage for her dryer

Was looking online the other night at the tool cabs
Get yourself a trade card for hellfords there’s some nice sets online
The trade card discount knocked the price from nearly £800 down to £300 for a roll cab and top box.

I have 1 of these in my garage, rammed with tools and detailing gear, not used full time as its at home. but quality seems solid and my one is about 2 years old.

Just have a few mates on hand if you need to lift it in to your garage!

I did manage to get both of the chests that I bought in the gf's Corsa with the seats down, but only just. I was more concerned by the weight and lifting out again once home but the units weren't that heavy really so I needn't have been worried, it worked out alright.

Thanks to you i have spent £54 on 3 modular trays had 2 i got last weekend, well, i can look on the positive side i saved £20 i got my trade price plus 15% of that price last weekend.

Quidco had a special for me as well got 7% cash back instead of the usual 4.5%

I need to get two middle boxes but i olny want to pay £180 for them both i will have to try to get a code that works with my trade discounts you sometimes get 2 hour daily discounts sent by email, this thread made me get mt trade card linked to use online as always used in store in past bt got free delivery as well today so bonus

I've been very tempted by the £20 offer on top of the trade price for the modular units, I may end up getting some when I go for some socket rails over the weekend. Wish I'd got the trade card years ago, I've bought a fair few tools in recent years, only when on a decent offer though. The professional chest range look like a particularly good offer on the trade prices.

I also did the Quidco by doing the click and collect but I only got the 4.5%, it has tracked but I wasn't sure if it would as I paid the balance on collection. The great thing about the Quidco is when you withdraw you can get the top-up by exchanging it for a Halfords voucher or voucher through Zeek.
