Customer Testimonials:

I have used Tilgear to supply us with goods since 2014 when I started as a Construction Technician. Having since moved on to two additional colleges I’ve always made sure we did business with Tilgear. The team always extremely helpful and professional and will always go the extra mile to supply our goods, even if it’s not a stock item. Any issues we have they will sort them for us. I recommend them to any school or College who need a reliable supplier to work with.  - Buckinghamshire College Group, High Wycombe.          Over the past two and a half years I have been using Tilgear for purchasing the tool kits for the Lee Marley Brickwork apprentices. I have a good report with the account manager who promptly returns quotes and is always on hand to answer any questions.
