Speedex Tools is a UAE-based retailer founded in 1991. Since then, it has become one of the city’s most easily recognized hardware stores. 

This hardware store offers an excellent range of tools and hardware options that every handyperson needs. You see, this shop features 23 item categories. 

Besides that, their products are not low-quality or mediocre ones we think: they even come from over 30 international brands. However, since most of their products are imported, you can expect a higher price point. 

Nonetheless, if you have the budget and you’re after the quality of the tools or equipment, the shop’s price ranges will not be a big problem. 

Speedex Tools also has an online service called Click & Collect, which we commend because it allows customers to browse and purchase items in the comfort of their homes. 

After your order is processed, you can collect the item in the shop at your convenient time, or you can choose to have it delivered to your home. 

Bear in mind that orders amounting to less than 99 AED have a delivery charge of 25 AED. Of course, the overall cost of the delivery can still depend on the weight of the product and the location. 

Among other things, if the item you’re looking for is not featured on their website, you can call or email their team because they’re willing to supply other products. 

Since they have direct accounts with other major brands, they can help you get the product even if it’s not in their standard range. 

Pros

  • Features excellent item inventory
  • Offers products from international brands
  • Provides Click & Collect service
  • Supplies products not featured on the website
  • Open all days of the week

Cons

  • Expensive price points
  • A few complaints about unhelpful staff

Ace Hardware is also one of the most trusted names when it comes to hardware stores in Dubai. It was established in Chicago in 1924. 

Since then, its network has grown, so it now operates in over 4,800 locations worldwide. 

This shop offers more than 50,000 products and materials for various purposes, including painting, decorating, electronics, and construction. 

Besides that, most of their products are from well-known brands such as Dyson, Karcher, Weber, Wilko, and more. 

Just like the previous entry, ACE Hardware also has an online store where customers can shop and have orders delivered to their homes. 

Note that for orders below 99 AED, the delivery fee is 20 AED. Alternatively, the delivery service will be free if the order is over 99 AED.  

In addition to that, it features a drive-through option where clients can collect the items from the store. 

Another notable feature of this hardware store that we like is its hassle-free return and exchange policy. If you purchased a faulty item, you can return it or get a refund for as long as it meets their return policy. 

Remember that you have 30 days from the date of purchase to return or refund an item. 

Also, this shop has Eid and Ramadan discount offers. Another thing we’re fans of.

If you’re a business owner or a buyer who wants to purchase in bulk, they also provide specialized offers and discounts. 

All in all, there’s much to like about this shop. The only disadvantage we see is that their delivery services aren’t always on point. 

Pros

  • Offers a good range of products
  • Features pick-up and delivery service
  • Offers various discounts
  • Convenient return and refund policy
  • Free delivery for orders over 99 AED

Cons

  • Several complaints about delays in delivery service

Homesmiths is a family-owned home improvement shop established in 2016. 

If you’re looking for a hardware shop that offers products at competitive prices, you can consider Homesmiths. 

This shop has a price pledge feature which guarantees that all its products are competitively priced. You see, if a customer finds the same item in another store for a lesser price, Homesmiths will match it. 

Aside from its inventory of tools and accessories, this store also provides professional services to customers who need a hand in home improvement projects. We think this is a good feature, especially for clients who are still not confident with their DIY skills.

Furthermore, if you want other good deals, we suggest registering as a member. Through this, you can earn reward points, access members-only benefits, and get other special offers. 

For example, if you’re already a member and you refer a friend, you will be credited 250 points which you can use on your next purchase. Your friend will also receive 250 points on their first purchase. 

In our opinion, Homesmiths’ delivery service is also commendable. All items are delivered within two to three working days, and all orders worth more than 100 AED are delivered for free. 

We’d like to note, though, that this shop received negative reviews regarding its limited selection of items. Since its product offerings are a bit limited, this shop may not be the best choice if you’re working on a large-scale project. 

Besides that, some items are out of stock but are still displayed online. This can be a hassle for people who need these items as soon as possible.

Pros

  • Offers various deals and discounts for members
  • Provides professional services for projects
  • Features a price pledge
  • Fast delivery service

Cons

  • Limited item selection
  • Some items are out of stock

Customer Reviews

This professional trading company was established in Dubai in 2014. Now, this hardware store has 12 branches throughout the UAE. 

Fine Tools Trading made it on our top picks because of its extensive collection of products. 

Most of Fine Tools Trading’s suppliers are from Asia and Europe. 

The shop’s notable brands include Dewalt, Makita, Uken, ESAB, and Fischer. 

This hardware store even exports to GCC countries and other African countries, so we can say that this firm has a relevant network and offerings.  

Their item inventory includes power tools, adhesives, lubricants, hand tools, paint, and welding products, among others. 

If you’re planning to buy power tools, this might be the best time because Fine Tools Trading offers up to a 30% discount on all power tools and accessories. 

Remember that you only have seven days to return a faulty item after the purchase date. Of course, the item will still be checked before they approve the refund. 

The only problem we see with this hardware store is its erratic operating hours. Although it’s open all days of the week, Fine Tools Trading has limited store hours on Fridays and Sundays. 

Nonetheless, you can still browse and purchase products through their website. Register and create an account before proceeding with your purchase. 

Note that their online store only accepts credit card payments in AED currency as of now. 

Pros

  • Has branches throughout the UAE
  • Features products from popular brands
  • Offers discounts and deals
  • Provides a wide range of products

Cons

  • Erratic operating hours
  • Online store only accepts credit card payments

Customer Reviews

Danube Home is part of the Danube Group that was established in 2008. Although most of its branches in the UAE offer home furnishings, they also have a section that features hardware and electrical supplies. 

This shop offers more than 50,000 products across 16 categories. Besides that, Danube Home also has 17 showrooms across Al Barsha, Sheik Zayed, Ras Al-Khaimah, Fujairah, Deira, Abu Dhabi, and more. 

We have to warn you, though, that their hardware catalog is not as extensive as other entries on this list. 

Nevertheless, you can still consider Danube Home if you’re only looking for adhesives, basic construction items, electrical supplies, hand tools, power tools, and other household items. 

Moreover, this shop offers Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) for its hardware items and other offerings. 

Danube Home can be a great option if you plan to buy a costly power tool. With its EMI feature, you can opt for up to three interest-free monthly installments. 

This company also has a “Click and Collect” facility, which we like because it’s free and customers can collect their order at their chosen store. 

However, not all the products they offer are eligible for this option, so we recommend that you check the item before checking out.

Pros

  • Offers EMI for hardware tools and equipment
  • Has showrooms
  • Features a Click and Collect facility
  • Open all days of the week
  • Offers monthly discounts and deals

Cons

  • Limited hardware selections

Customer Reviews

“Very good building material options. Excellent sales support by Mohammad Badr. Commendable after sales support by Arshad. Thanks for the good buying experience.” – Sonal Chawla
