Why Are Snap-On Tool Boxes So Expensive?

Why Are Snap-On Tool Boxes So Expensive

Materials

Snap-On uses high-quality chrome alloy to make their tools and that significantly increases the production cost. Unlike the cheap, iron-made tools that will break sooner, Snap-On tools don’t compromise on the quality. They won’t break in half loosening a rusty pipe or bolt.

High quality materials and cost-intensive procedures contribute the most when it comes to pricing the products.

Brand value

You can consider Snap-On as “The Apple of Tools”. Just like Apple, this brand also has been able to create a loyal client base across the globe. In 2019, they sold $4.25 billion worth of tools and equipment.

This might be true that Snap-On sells regular tools only, but each of their products come with a certain commitment to last a lifetime and provide excellent service. They have become a reliable brand in the tools industry and created a unique brand value.

Craftsmanship

Currently, Snap-On employs over 12 thousand skilled workers and they are giving their best to give you durable, efficient, and high-quality tools/accessories. Every single tool has to go through rigorous quality control standards to ensure you get only the very best.

Metalworking is challenging and that’s why you see low-quality tools. Snap-On makes sure that you get your hands on the best quality tools available that are effective and convenient.

Support quality

One of the most amazing features of Snap-On tools is the lifetime support the customers get. The company has more than 3,000 franchise vans all over the US to provide you with all the tools you’ll need.

Not only that, you’ll also get a lifetime warranty on every single product that you buy from Snap-On – another reason the upfront payment is so high.

US-based

Most Snap-On tools are made in US-based manufacturing plants, with the exception of power tools being manufactured outside the USA. With the help of 13 manufacturing facilities and 3,400 franchise vans, Snap-On is serving the whole nation efficiently.

However, being USA based also increases the production, delivery, and maintenance cost of each tool. This makes the Snap-On tools so expensive.

FAQs

1. How much is the biggest Snap-on box?

Ans: Around $40,000 – $60,000. Snap-On boxes are highly customizable and the price will depend on how much customization you want. I personally saw a 200 inches wide toolbox that must’ve taken a fortune to build. Contact Snap-On for more details.

2. Is Kobalt made by Snap-On?

Ans: Yes. In 2003, a company named Danaher Corporation took over the production of Kobalt tools. Kobalt tools had a manufacturing partner named “J.H.William” which turned into Snap-On Tools the same year.
