We're All In It For the Long Haul

February 2nd, 2015

Recently, I read an article about a new president of a large tire and auto service chain. In it he said the chain was changing their business model from a "transaction" model to a "customer" model. 

In other words, they were trying to maximize sales on each sale instead of taking care of their customer's needs. Now they want to take care of their customers on each visit and build a long term relationship. 

We welcome them to our side. From day one, almost forty years ago, our plan was to point out our customer's needs and let them decide whether they wanted to repair their vehicle. Hence the Phrase: We advise, you decide. We put you in charge. We will inspect your vehicle on every visit and tell you what we find. You decide if or when you want us to make the repairs. No Pressure. We're all in it for the long haul.

Determining the Age of a Tire

February 20th, 2014
When it comes to determining the age of a tire, it is easiest to identify when the tire was manufactured by reading its Tire Identification Number (often referred to as the tire’s serial number or DOT number). Unlike vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and the serial numbers used on many other consumer goods (which identify one specific item), Tire Identification Numbers are really batch codes that identify several components.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires that Tire Identification Numbers be a combination of the letters DOT, followed by ten, eleven or twelve letters or numbers that identify the manufacturing location, tire size and manufacturer's code, along with the week and year the tire was m ...[more]
