brakenoodle's review of Screwfix www.screwfix.co.uk

★★☆☆☆

“Do not stock even simple tools.”

Written on: 15/06/2017 by brakenoodle (32 reviews written)

All I wanted was ONE single Phillips screwdriver. Not a rarely used, obscure imperial sized tool but probably one of the most common tools in any tool box, anywhere. I went into a Screwfix and was told that single Screwdrivers have to be ordered on a 'next day' basic. I was speechless! We are talking about a Phillips screwdriver! They were happy to sell me a screwdriver set from stock but this is not what I wanted. Obviously, I left and got my screw driver elsewhere, off the shelf. Silly policy Screwfix, very silly.
I also don't take lightly to being called 'mate' by their counter staff.

Duke_Nukem's Response to brakenoodle's Review

Phillips screwdivers and screws are deprecated these days. For one thing the driver rides out of the screwhead as the torque increases (amazingly this is a deliberate feature). Pozidriv is the prefered standard, at least in Europe.
