The Rise of the Mobile Tyre Fitting
Significant improvements in technology over the last 20 years have perhaps made patience unnecessary in the modern world. You can make payments, book a taxi, order food or talk to a friend across the world all at the click of a fingertip on your smartphone. As technology grows, our behaviors change and adapt to the revolutionized world around us. It seems that people have adopted the need for instant gratification that is guided by modern technology.
Picture the scenario - we've all been there! You hear a noise from your tyre and feel the car dragging. You've got a flat tyre! Traditionally, you would have probably cursed and headed to the boot to get the spare tyre out. Now here's the issue - The majority of new cars are sold without a spare tyre! The reason for this is purely down to cost, it saves the manufacturers around £100 each tyre, it also saves massively on space not having a heavy bulky tyre inside the boot.
The probability is you've never checked if you have a spare tyre inside your boot until this happened! So what do you do?
A quick google search for mobile tyre fitters and one phone call or online booking is all it takes. Half an hour later, the mobile tyre fitter has arrived with a new tyre and the equipment necessary to replace the punctured tyre for a new one. You pay on your card as the fitter has brought a card machine with him, he checks all your other tyres to make sure they're safe and you head off happily into the sunset!
According to google insights, searches for mobile tyre fitting are at an all time high. In 2007, search activity was almost non-existent.
With 33% of tyre purchasers citing speed of purchase as the most important reason for looking online and 41% needing a tyre immediately, mobile tyre fitting is the way forward.
