'[OT] Question about the Netherlands'
2011\11\30@154214 by Sean Breheny

Hi all,

I have a question for all the Dutch piclisters :)

Some of my colleagues are going to the Netherlands to install some
equipment at a customer site. They are going to have to purchase some
tools locally in order to do this work. They will need at least some
regular hand drills as well as an air compressor with a fairly large
tank (maybe 100 Liters), and a hammer drill (for inserting concrete
anchors). Renting is a possibility but they would prefer to buy as
they will be back again a few times over the next year and they would
need the same tools again and they can store them on-site.

This site is in Almelo. We can either buy these items at a physical
local shop or we can buy them online and have them shipped. Can anyone
advise me on either some shops in the Almelo area which would see
these tools or on an online vendor who sells these tools (compatible
with 230V, 50Hz) and would ship to the Netherlands?

Thank you!

Sea

Hi Sean,

If a two hours journey is acceptable for you then you can also thinking
about getting your tools in Germany (Bremen, Dusseldorf, Hannover etc are
all in a reachable distance, especially if you have a very fast car as you
can drive as fast as you want on a German motorway :-) ) Within Europe you
do not need to pay customs and you use the single currency so it does not
really matter where you find the shop.

I am not into that type of equipment. In my country there are lots of DIY home-improvement stores (GAMMA, PRAXIS, etc) in every larger town. One of those might suit your needs, or maybe you need something a bit more for the professionals, with which I have no experience.

::and you use the single currency

What? There's a single currency in Europe, when did that sneak in under the radar? Things that happen when you leave that side of the world :)

**Warning** That is an attempt at humour and is firmly tongue in cheek.

Well, some countries are still not using Euro and some others are dropping
it already ;-)

Thanks for the info, Wouter and Tamas. I have passed it along to my
co-worker who is traveling there. She found that she could order the
larger tools from Grainger and have them delivered there, but the
local DIY stores will be very helpful for the smaller items.
