Based on the Borough Road Industrial Estate, The Tyre Warehouse has been established for 20 years and have always stood by and been proud of their status as being the largest independent tyre retailer and warehouse in Brackley, Northamptonshire.
Their reputation in the area is outstanding, providing their expertise to other workshops based within the Industrial Estate and take their role as part of the local community very seriously, proudly supporting as many local events. They also have the advantage of having full control over the products they select for their requirements, without any outside influences.
The Tyre Warehouse believes in being in full control of the equipment and products has given them an advantage. That’s why they have confidently chosen and trusted Hunter equipment for their workshop not once, but twice, with the purchase of their Elite TD Wheel Aligner, followed by the GSP9200 Touch Balancer. One of The Tyre Warehouse’s key objectives is having the best quality staff and training for them, and that’s why they believe in having the best quality equipment, like Hunter, to support this.
“Hunter equipment is one of the best in our experience, after trialling and looking at half a dozen other equipment systems, we felt Hunter was head and shoulders above anything else” commented Shaun Bancroft, Manager at The Tyre Warehouse.
“The ease of use, the speed of use, accuracy and time and money-saving is everything we could need. We’ve got the service, backup and parts which are easily accessible to us. For high volume workshops like us, we highly recommend Hunter and the support from Pro-Align.”
The decision behind making the purchase of the GSP9200 Touch was after the owner needed a wheel balancer for another depot he owned. After looking at half a dozen wheel balancers, he felt the Hunter GSP9200 stood the test of time in terms of reliability. Over the course of 4-6 months, it saved the company 40% in terms of cost and labour, plus they felt it was able to do the volume of work they required.
“After having such a positive experience with Pro-Align and our Hunter Wheel Balancer, it was a natural progression for us to go for the GSP9200 Balancer” commented Shaun. “It was key for us to have a partner to work with, who understands our requirements and to offer advice when needed, so it was a no-brainer to go to Pro-Align for a second Hunter system”.
The Tyre Warehouse have seen the benefits both systems and Pro-Align’s service has offered the business, both adding significant profitability, increased sales, with more alignments being done and having the advantage of being able to find things that weren’t discovered prior to inspection. “Pro-Align has given us the whole package, which ultimately has given us a return on investment” commented Shaun.
“Anybody from an industry perspective looking to update and upgrade their equipment should really give Pro-Align a call. Come and visit their head office and see what the machines can do. Although the cost is slightly more than others, we wouldn’t even think twice about working with Hunter and Pro-Align again.”
“The experience of working with them has been so positive, it warrants the cost completely.”
