Get specialty tools you need the easy way with AutoZone's Loan-A-Tool® service, and get your full deposit back after returning them within 90 days. If you decide you want a tool, you can keep it, and buy it with the deposit. If you need a special gadget, we have what it takes to do the job right.

There comes a time in every DIYer's life when they're standing over the hood, maybe they've just struggled their way to that one auto part that's buried deep in the car, only to find out they need another tool. If this has already happened to you, you might have tried to determine how much use you would get out of the new addition to your toolbox, and just how much that use is worth. As much as we love loading up on tools, sometimes the tool just isn't worth owning.

You won't get far working on your serpentine belt without a serpentine belt tool for easy removal of the belt. And if you think taking the belt off is difficult without specialty equipment, just wait till it's time to put a new belt on. A lot of crucial tools are infrequently useful. They can be very expensive too. A torque wrench can be necessary to do certain automotive jobs correctly, but most of the time you would be fine without one. A strut spring compressor can be incredibly useful, if you need to compress a strut. The fact of the matter is that some equipment is only useful some of the time. You don't need to own every tool all of the time, because unless you're a prolific DIYer, you might not use them much.

That's where AutoZone comes in. We take care of people who take care of their cars, and our loaner tool program is no exception. Loan-A-Tool® is the best tool rental service for getting heavy duty automotive equipment when you need it. Just put down a deposit for the equipment and, then take your gear back to the garage and get down to work. After you've finished the job, return the tool to AutoZone within 90 days and get your deposit refunded, or keep the tool and pay for it with the deposit.

To get started, go to or your local store, and select the equipment you need. We can get the tools to your door tomorrow with next day delivery, or you can pick up today in-store. Either way, you get your deposit back once you've returned it to your neighborhood AutoZone.
