Get to know… Al’s Tyre ShopWednesday 23rd November 2022
This month, get to know Alan from Al’s Tyre Shop…
What services does your garage provide?
Tyre fitting to cars, motorbikes, vans and 4×4 vehicles, plus wheel balancing and free tyre pressure checks.
How would you describe your business in 3 words?
Honest, reliable and busy.
Tell us one interesting fact people may not know about you?
I love fishing.
What does your customer base typically value the most from your business?
What encouraged you to become a customer of Davanti?
Many different reasons. We have always had a strong mid-range offering but we were having some supply issues. Davanti offered strong supply and a large range, plus the price point fits well. Most importantly I had fitted a set to my wife’s car 12 months before taking them on fully so I knew the tyre performed well and we could sell it confidently as a quality tyre to our customers.
What impact has being a Davanti dealer had on your business?
It has given us a consistent brand offering with good stock support meaning we are not switching customers between mid-range brands.
Which Davanti products are most popular with your customers?
The DX640 car tyre. We are also seeing a few more Protoura Sport tyres going out.
If you could offer one piece of advice to a fellow garage owner just starting out in the industry, what would it be?
