"We started selling to body shops, and in the early 80's, the company developed the very first national catalog for the body shop professional," says Michael Kestler, President of Standard Tools and Equipment Co.
"Our many years of experience in the collision repair industry helped us to distribute superior products and manufacturer better paint booths. The value, quality and efficiency have been major factors in our expansion into other industries and our overall success."

SHIPPING TIMES We understand that receiving your equipment in a timely manner and undamaged is of importance. If the item you order is in stock, it will ship within 2 business days of receiving payment and accepted terms and conditions. Some items have more specific production times:
Frame machines: Shipping time is within 3-5 business days from receiving the order. We do assemble the frame machines prior to shipping them via flatbed carrier.
Paint booths: Shipping time is 5-10 business days to build and ship most booth models.
Air Makeup Units: it will take 5-15 business days. Remember, these units are built and tested to your specific requirements so building doesn't begin until payment and terms are received.
If an item is out-of-stock or on backorder, we will ship the item to you as soon as it is back in stock. For backorder items, give our sales team a call and they can let you know the ETA on receiving it back in stock.
RECEIVING YOUR EQUIPMENT We stock most of our equipment and parts in our 70,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Greensboro, North Carolina. We can ship it to you or to a local terminal using an LTL carrier. Please make sure you know how you will need to unload it once it gets to you. You will need a forklift to unload most equipment and crates.
There are additional changes for residential delivery and lift gate service.
Remember, you are responsible for inspecting your equipment for damage at the time of delivery. If you notice damage, we suggest you sign the bill of lading as damaged at the time of arrival. Damage must be reported to us within 24-hours. See our Shipping and returns terms.
Please read our blog for more information on damaged shipments.
WE WELCOME LOCAL PICKUPS If you would prefer to pickup your order we would love to load it up for you. Some things you need to know before you pickup an order from us:
Arrival: For pickup orders, you must arrive between Monday through Friday, between 8AM and 4PM. Even better, let us know you are coming so that we can have your order ready when you arrive. If you arrive after 4PM, we can't guarantee that it can be loaded the same day.
Load Up Vehicles: You must have a sufficient trailer, box truck or other vehicle for us to load your equipment on to. We will not load lifts into pickup trucks for safety reasons. You will need to provide the straps to tie down your equipment. Tire equipment can be put into a pickup, given there is adequate space. If you are unsure of the vehicle type, or trailer length, needed, please give us a call.
