Who we are is in everything we do.

At Essential Hardware we come from humble backgrounds where we work hard and take care of our homes. We aren’t complicated people. We like having fun and helping others, we enjoy spending time with our families, and most of all we’re obsessive about doing more with less. It’s who we are - and now it’s how we do business.

In 2005 we began selling hardware and home improvement products online from our modest offices in the New York metropolitan area because as we worked on our own DIY projects we were finding the most incredible deals on brands we used every day. That success gave us the idea of one day building a single website where we could offer the essential tools and daily products people needed at the low prices we wanted, all in one place. That idea became

At Essential Hardware the key to our success is that we aren’t just a comprehensive website; it’s the people behind the scenes who all share the same click-to-door customer service goals that make the real difference.

All of us at Essential Hardware understand that there’s no better feeling than when you finish something. We call it getting that "finishing feeling". Whether it’s simply a leaky faucet or putting an addition on your house, we believe in creating that little feeling you get when you finally get something done.


Soon after we launched we saw such success that we expanded our product line to include over 140,000+ of the best names and brands in home improvement. We included products from every category imaginable including Automotive, Building Materials, Lawn & Garden, Outdoor Recreation and more.

Now of course with all of these items available, you might be wondering where we keep them all. Well for one thing, we have warehouses all across the country tucked away in beautiful locations right near you so shipping is always efficient and speedy. And our custom distribution method is the only way to deliver this many products so affordably - something we are constantly improving on to save you even more time and money.

As a team made up of DIY’ers and experts from around the country we know the value of getting things done on a budget, and that’s why each one of us is committed to bringing you that finishing feeling.
