Is it possible to arrange home tyre fitting during the coronavirus lockdown?

By Julia Freeman

The principles of social distancing outlined by the UK Government, culminating in the Prime Minister's announcement that we were to stay at home unless going to work, taking exercise, doing essential shopping and caring for sick or elderly relatives is central to keeping the wider population safe in this current pandemic.

One issue within the government guidance mentioned above is that many people are left confused as to what constitutes "essential shopping". Conflicting reports within the media have not helped, nor have misguided soundbites from senior Police officers, which have subsequently been retracted following a backlash.
 
At Protyre, we recognise the importance of keeping essential vehicles on the road. For this reason, our garages remain open to ensure that our tyre professionals can support key workers in keeping the country moving. Even if you are not a key worker but rely on your car to complete essential shopping or tend to vulnerable relatives, we are here to help you.

Revised working

If your car is in need of a new set of tyres, you can book a mobile tyre fitter to come and visit your home. This can be carried out whilst maintaining the principles of social distancing, without you needing to make any additional journeys in your car.
 
Our prime concern in these times is keeping both staff and customers safe when carrying out any kind of transaction. With this in mind, we are implementing a range of measures to help achieve this. This includes contactless service, where customers can leave their car at their local Protyre garage to have its tyres replaced, or a collection and delivery service in some centres.

Benefits of having your tyres changed at home

Some key workers potentially find it very difficult to make the time to get to a garage to have their tyres checked or changed, especially those working long shifts at antisocial hours in our hospitals. Booking a mobile tyre fitter to visit your home can help to fit in with your busy schedule. Appointments can be arranged at a convenient time, also eliminating the need to take children out unnecessarily in line with current guidance.

Not just at home

A major benefit of a mobile tyre fitter service is that it is not just at home that our mechanics can visit you. Whether at work or any other location, our mobile fitters can find you and get you on the move. Likewise, in a tyre-related emergency, if you have found yourself stranded at the roadside, our experienced mechanics can get you off and driving in no time at all.

Book with Protyre

Keeping your car running effectively is vital, perhaps even more so when car use in the UK is at an all-time low. In order to be confident that your tyres are up to scratch so that your car is safe when it is required, keeping on top of essential maintenance is incredibly important.
 
You can purchase your new tyres online now through the Protyre website, where our handy tyre-finder will help you identify the right tyres in no time. Then get in touch with your local centre to arrange a mobile fitting service at a time and place convenient to you. We offer great prices on leading brands including Pirelli, Falken, Bridgestone, and many more.
