Kind of sad guys the service was real good. But the economy took them out. Cornwell, Mac and Snappy. If we need something we have to travel to an area that has a dealer. So far they have been real good about it and understand the situation. Just not enough business to support them and to much travel in a rural area. Was wondering if it is the same around you? I know some people claim the mobile tool business was or is a scam. But it goes to show my area is declining as we had the 3 big ones and some that sold everything even an old German that sold S&K (but he died) NOW NONE!! Also I herd that to get into it is quite an investment, with inventory and truck. The old German used to run a station wagon or van and come and go never knew what he would or would not have!! take it away

We see the Snap on and Cornwell guys around here. But we are in the heart of Nascar country.

Last of it they had a separate credit plan not really just you and the driver. Yes snap on credit will (and have) come after you, bill collector etc.

Sounds like you're in one of those areas some of the folks here are from that hates Walmart,Sams,TSC and don't think any business should make a profit.Guess they think Snapon
should sell their top quality tools at Harbor Freight prices. Snapon man here does good I don't buy enough for him to make a stop regularly but if I need something I call and find out when he's coming to the nearby salvage yard a friend owns and I meet him there.

Snap On is healthy here. One dealer has 5 trucks on the road. Snap On doesn?t seem to have a problem keeping a trucks in each territory. We had a Matco dealer for a while, but he found a better opportunity, so he shut it down. We now have a Mac dealer. I tend to be a Snap On guy, but having other brands helps keep Snappy in line. You have to support the Mac or Matco dealer a bit to keep them around.

we still have a snap on guy. our mac guy quit and our matco guy went ufo. we are supposed to be getting a new mac guy shortly. yeah, they are expensive, but, we need a lot of specialty tools to fix cars, and they are pretty much the only source.

The only thing good about Snap-OFF tools is the warranty.....

No offense to anyone intended but the older I get, The less I believe in name brands. Especially tye "Made in America" brands. There are a few and by that I literally mean a few brands that still have pride in their product. But 99% of the brands have long since been bought out and pride has taken a back seat to profit. Its all about reducing cost a nickle and then charging an extra dime. "Made in Anerica" has long since become a marketing scheme instead of a statement of origin. As far as the tool trucks go. I stay away from brand names for the above mentioned reason. I have found ACE Hardware sells tools just as good as Snap-on, Craftsman or any other name brand and they have the same lifetime warranty.

My old Snap-on guy came to my house every Thursday night. Since I moved I have to go meet him but he has been no problem with warranty items.

I don't buy tool truck tools so I may be asking a dumb question. Can't you just order the stuff on line like anything else?

We have a snap on dealer come to work every week. He is the indusrial salesman and sales a lot of service tools so he has guaranteed income that way plus we get 25% off. Ok I never have heard of cornwell is it a regional thing??

Are you from NC? Sounds like you are talking about Shorty that used to come to the tobacco market peddling tools from his station wagon. I have a S&K 1/4" drive set that my father bought from him back in the 60's. Lee
