Tools the Pros Use for Smart Home Assembly

By Mich Michaud

According to Digital Commerce 360, “Consumers spent $861 billion online with U.S. retailers in 2020, up 44.0% in 2019.”

This means consumers are buying online, and having those products sent to their homes. And this is a problem, why? Well, lots of those items need to be assembled, right? And let’s face it, most consumers are ill equipped for the task at hand.

Tools to Buy Today

Want to know what tools it takes to assemble at home like a boss? We’ve got you covered. Graham Grebner, operations manager for Assemblers, Inc., a national residential assembly company, outlines the essential tools you need to get the job done at home.

Here are the must-have tools he suggests for your home assembly:

“Some of the most important tools are as follows: metric socket set and ratchet, adjustable wrench, screwdrivers (Philips head and flat head), Allen wrench set, mallet or hammer.” Just eight tools to set you up for success.

While you’re at it, a canvas tool tote is helpful to keep everything in one place.

Advice About Basic Assembly Tools

And, while it might seem overkill to buy all these tools, Graham says it will save you time, money and effort in the long run. “The last thing you want to do is get started on an assembly of your child’s new outdoor playset on the day of the big party and have to stop to run to the store for that one tool you didn’t buy. Not only will these tools save you money in the long run. They are very common tools and can be used for a variety of other projects down the road.”

Can’t Assemble It Alone? We Hear You!

Speaking of down the road. What if you get in the middle of that trampoline assembly and you say to yourself, “You know, I’m not really that into this.” It’s okay. There’s no shame in admitting to yourself that you don’t have the time or the inclination to assemble that detailed product.

Either way, Graham says it’s entirely appropriate to call in the talent, so to speak.

“Homeowners should consider hiring an assembly company like Assemblers, Inc. to eliminate the headache of in-home assembly. The techs are experienced in all sorts of assembly and can complete the project with excellent quality in a fraction of the time.”

So, there you have it. Do it yourself with the proper tools or hire the experts. You’re in charge and you will succeed.
