Tyre Traders

Tyre Trader Franchise

  1. Description

Tyre Traders was established in 2008 offering a completely mobile tyre fitment service to the South African Motoring community. Customers soon realised that a mobile tyre and battery service was much more convenient, and that lower prices could be achieved over traditional tyre fitment centers.

About the Franchise

The combination of online ordering and an established business with low overheads has proved a winning formula. The Tyre Traders business model operates profitably with gross margins that are a fraction of those required by traditional tyre fitment centers. The branch overheads are the running and replacement costs of the vans, salaries and some telephone charges.

By not having rent, rates, water and electricity, and insurance on a stock costs, the franchise is able to offer clients the same range of tyres at a lower price. The company is a specialist in high performance, 4×4 as well as the latest generation of run flat tyres. The company supplies and fits for cars and light commercial vehicles, and uses the latest equipment to ensure perfect fitting and balancing.
