How many of you enjoy wasting your time in a full-service tire shop? Silly question, right? Since time is a precious commodity, we are all trying to use it wisely.
It would be a dream if we could fill our days with only the things that we love to do, but unfortunately, that is just not reality.
In today’s day and age, there are necessary tasks that we all must do. If you own a vehicle, there are many mandatory tasks (fueling up, oil changes, tire maintenance, and so much more)!
But, what if there was a way to check one off without taking time away from your day? Well, thanks to Tread Connection there is!
My name is Jared, and starting March 1st, you will never again have to waste your precious time sitting at a tire shop again!
Why? Because Tread Connection is a full-service tire shop that fits INSIDE OF A VAN! That means, when you need new tires, you call us, and we drive the tire shop to you!
Now, you may have a few questions. So, for our very first blog post, we are going to answer a few of the most common questions.
It’s super simple. Call (919) 636-3338 to schedule an appointment at our full-service tire shop wherever and whenever you would like.
While scheduling the appointment we will need to know the following information:
- The number series on the actual tire (when you look on your tire, you will see a series of numbers, then the tire manufacture like Goodyear. We need to know the series of numbers.) If you are unsure which numbers, take a pic of all the numbers and we can help decode the foreign tire language.
- Your car’s VIN (that way they can get the right tire for the make/model/year.)
- Then we come to your desired location, change your tires, and voila, it’s finished. Many customers do not even have to interact with us in person.
Then, we arrive at the time of your scheduled appointment with your new tire(s), change your tires, and leave. That is it.
Yes! Our mobile tire shop offers the same services you’ll find in a brick and mortar store. When you call to make your appointment and provide us with the tire specs, we order the tires.
Fun Fact: every tire shop purchases tires from the same distribution center.
Not necessarily! In fact, we are sometimes the least expensive option! But, there’s another cost you need to consider: Your time.
If you were to have your windshield repaired at your house instead of driving to a store, there is a labor and mobile service fee. If you have your lunch delivered to your office, there is a delivery fee. Similarly, there is a $50 onsite service fee to use Tread Connection. Unless a discount retailer is running a special, the onsite service fee is the only price difference.
Still! Even with our service fee, Tread Connection’s full-service tire shop can still be the least expensive option.
However, when the on-site fee does make Tread Connection the most expensive option, you need to ask yourself, “How much is my time worth?”
Is a $50 on-site fee worth the time that you save fighting traffic driving to a tire shop, sitting in a waiting room for hours, and then fighting traffic on the way back?
As a former high school economics teacher, I know the value of the convenience that a mobile tire service has to offer.
When I was a teacher, a half-day lost to tire care heavily impacted me and my students. After all, I lost a day of leave; but, they lost a valuable day of classroom instruction.
Whatever your profession is, we want you to be able to give your time to the people who need it the most! By making one phone call, Tread Connection can remove a mundane task off your to-do list and save you hours of sitting in a tire shop waiting room.
That’s it for now. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
We are really excited to help the community get their time back! We are here to help you change your tires without changing your schedule.
