But enough about what we have to say – what about the customers?

“I’ve been using Halfords Professional range for years (as a DIYer keeping two 20 year old cars going) and never had any issues and never been left wanting. I’ve had one breakage, which of course was replaced without quibble. I bought this set to keep in my camper. Very pleased.” – Anonymous

150 Piece Socket Set
“Had this kit 3 years and I have been mightily impressed. This was further bolstered by a recent breakage of a ratchet spanner, which owing to the lifetime guarantee was replaced immediately and with no questions asked. I’m very impressed with Halfords and this service makes the kit exceptional value.” – Jimbo88
“Bought this kit as I do tend to do my own car maintenance and services. You can’t go wrong with a Halfords Advance socket set, the quality of each piece is top dollar and a lifetime guarantee means you can’t beat it. I would seriously recommend it to anyone” – Jim528
All of our Advanced socket sets are made from quality chrome vanadium steel, and the 150 Piece Socket Set is no exception. With both metric and imperial sizes, there’s no job too big or too small for this cracking set of tools.
90 Piece Socket Set
“I purchased this because I am stripping and rebuilding my 21st birthday present, a 1973 Bultaco motorcycle. Most of my existing tools are imperial, or rusty. So I decided to invest in a new set and this has proved to be a great value addition to my garage. With the lifetime guarantee if anything goes wrong, I can’t fault it at all!” – Alpina250
“This set has all the kit I needed with a good mix of metric and a/f sockets to cater for modern and classic cars. Really good build quality, top fit and quick release as well. Best quality and value on the high street. Very impressed.” – onesizefitzall
As you can see, the 90 Piece Socket Set contains more than enough pieces for the casual mechanic. A good mix of AF and metric socket sizes provides an ideal range for restoring a classic car as well as maintaining a shiny new one.
36 Piece Socket Set
“Needed a light, compact, high quality set of sockets and screwdrivers for a long overland motorcycle trip from UK to Mongolia. Using this 1/4″ set to prep the bike now and really happy with my purchase.” – Vinny58
“I was recommended this little toolbox by another motorcyclist when I was on a 2 week trip in Europe. Bought it and have been delighted with it since. It is small and compact – perfect for taking on motorcycle trips or having in the back of your car. I supplemented it with a couple of extra sockets, spanners and a multitool and was set for any issues. It’s had a LOT of use over the past 4 years and I haven’t needed anything more. Highly recommended for motorcyclists/scooters to take on journeys and for anyone else wanting a handy kit.” – Senorc
The 36 Piece Socket Set seems popular with motorcyclists, but other reviews reveal it’s also perfect for those odd jobs around the house. Standing up to years of abuse from being frequently put to work, this set has more than earned the name ‘Advanced’.
28 Piece Socket Set
“Feels like a robust, well manufactured piece of kit. Ergonomically designed and feels reliable in use which is important when you need faith in the product. All in all a great buy and with a lifetime warranty too you can’t go wrong.” – Martex
“This is a really high-quality piece of kit. The carrying case is brilliant too! Plus with the lifetime warranty, you can’t go wrong.” – Adam551
The baby of the bunch, our 28 Piece Socket Set features the most commonly used metric sockets, ideal for those who know they won’t need imperial sizes. Small and compact, it’s ideal for taking with you as you never know when a DIY emergency may arise!
