John from Queens, New York

Father of five and auto mechanic. I need to buy tools to get more jobs at work!

I work for Avis. They don't supply us with our own tools, so I'm passed up for jobs & overtime. A set of tools will let me provide for my family.


I am a 30 year old husband and father of 5 children. I just finished school at Lincoln Tech and I am now a auto mechanic.

My goal is to own my own shop one day. Until then, I work for Avis at minimum wage. This makes it hard to support my family. I am a hard worker and want to support my family the way I need to and should.

I need auto mechanic tools as I have to purchase my own tools for work. They do not supply us with them. I have to buy a Torx set, a Hex set, Open end and Close end wrenches, etc.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to do more jobs on cars and be called on for further work at by my employer. I will no longer be overlooked to complete jobs and receive any overtime offered.
