Commercial Fleet Management
  • by Keith
  • June 2020

Our management packages have been built on the foundation of providing the right tyre, timely fitted and at the right price. We recognise that every commercial fleet is unique and operates very differently. Which is why we invest the time to understand your business. Only then can we apply our unique long-term experience to deliver improved tyre management services that fully meet your requirements. We focus on providing the best solution for every customer. We listen carefully to your needs, analyse every vehicle in your fleet, their different specifications, their operating requirements and their locations. Only then can we apply our expertise to tailor a unique fleet tyre management contract that fully meets your requirements. We give you greater control over all the elements of running your fleet’s tyres.

We’ll mix and match different contract types across your fleet to build you the optimum package. You can fine tune the level of inclusivity in your contract with our range of flexible service levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. All designed to fit your business perfectly, with the reassurance of rapid roadside support and all the management control you need.

Our Fleet Services provide: • Fleet Inspections reports, which indicate tread depth levels, vehicle details and highlight which tyres need attention by serial number. • Annual Fleet Analysis Reports with tyre manufactures, which illustrate expenditure, costs per vehicle and updates to your tyre policy. • Fleet inspections can be carried out across the entire fleet. By means of regular inspection, work that needs to be undertaken can be identified and dealt with before it becomes critical. Undertaking preventative maintenance will enhance safety and keep down operating costs, thereby helping you to achieve better cost effectiveness across your entire fleet.

Punctures – Commercial Tyres
  • by Keith
  • June 2020

The latest tyres seem to be stronger and harder to puncture, but sometimes getting a puncture is inevitable. That’s why at Discount Tyres, we offer a convenient puncture repair service. If you do get a puncture, the tyre is damaged! Bring it into us and our team of trained technicians will evaluate if it can be fixed in a safe and professional manner in line with safety standards BSAU159 and have you back on the road as soon as possible. Driving on a flat tyre doesn’t only compromise your safety, but increases the chance of having to fully replace the tyre. So if you notice your tyre is looking a bit flat, pull over, replace it with our call out service. Never drive on a flat or partially deflated tyre

Tips to avoid getting punctures:

Check the treads on your tyres regularly for embedded glass, stones or sharp objects. Make sure your tyres are inflated correctly to each manufacturers pressure per position. When did you last inspect your tyre valves and the thickness or the rim where the bead mounts the tyre?
