Why Choose Independent Merchants Like Leyton Fasteners Over Big Box Hardware Chains?

At Leyton Fasteners, we’ve worked hard over the last forty years to become a leader in quality and expertise in the world of fasteners. And with a recent uptick in the visitor numbers to our trade counter, we thought it might be a good idea to explain why independent businesses like ourselves are often a better bet for your fastener needs than some of the big box names you’ve all heard of.

So, without further ado, let’s delve into why we think members of the public are increasingly turning to us instead of those big chains.

The Advantage of Buying in Lower Quantities

Independent fastener merchants understand that sometimes you just need that one specific fastener to complete a project or make a crucial repair. Whether you’re fixing a cherished classic car or crafting a unique DIY project, there’s no need to buy more than what’s necessary.

Unlike big box stores like B&Q and Screwfix, where bulk purchases are often the norm, we offer the flexibility to buy just a single fastener or a handful, depending on your needs. This ensures you get precisely what you require, translating to obvious cost savings.

After all, why pay for a box of a hundred when you only need one or two?

Personalised Customer Service

At Leyton Fasteners, we pride ourselves on offering a level of service that’s a cut above the rest. While you might get directions to an aisle in big stores like B&Q, we go the extra mile to understand your specific needs.

Whether you’re searching for a standard fastener or something more elusive, our team can assist. In fact, one of our standout services is helping customers find even those hard-to-come-by, obsolete fixings.

It’s not just about selling a product; it’s about offering solutions tailored to your unique requirements. We take the time to understand your use case and suggest a range of options that best suit your project. This commitment to personalised service sets independent merchants like us apart from the larger chains.

Expertise Matters

With four decades under our belt, we’ve cultivated a team of specialists who can identify a fastener’s potential just by glancing at it. Describe your project to us, and our experts can immediately make recommendations tailored to your needs. It’s this hands-on expertise that truly sets us apart.

In contrast, while big box stores like Screwfix or Toolstation may offer a wide range of products, personalised expertise often falls short.

Retail assistants in such stores might have a general understanding, but the nuanced knowledge and immediate recognition of fastener potential is something you’ll predominantly find with specialists like us.

Unique Product Offerings

Specialised fastener merchants such as ourselves boast product ranges as diverse as the projects our customers undertake. Not only do we stock a vast array of fasteners, but we also specialise in sourcing even the most obscure ones.

Our extensive network and industry connections mean that if you need a fastener, we can find it for you – no matter how rare. This commitment to providing a wider variety of options ensures we can cater to even the most specialised projects.

While big box stores might offer a standard range, the unique and bespoke offerings at Leyton Fasteners stand out in the market.

Why Leyton Fasteners is Worth Considering

When it comes down to it, Leyton Fasteners offers practical benefits that many big box stores can’t. We provide the option to buy in smaller quantities, have a team that really knows their stuff, and can source just about any fastener you might need.

It’s not about being flashy; it’s about delivering solid, reliable service.So, if you’re planning a project and need some fasteners, why not pop into our on-site trade counter? Alternatively, our online shop is always open if you’re not local or prefer to shop from home.
