Caravan and motorhome owners are increasingly turning to mobile fitting for their replacement tyres, with TyresOnTheDrive, and choosing the convenience of having them changed at home.
Demand for tyres being replaced at home or work generally has more than doubled in the past four years as motorists opt to have a technician come to them rather than having to take their car to a high street outlet.
Although home and mobile fitting accounts for just two per cent of the UK replacement tyre industry overall, data from Google shows that online searches for it has rocketed from around 25,000 in February 2015 to approaching 60,000 in the same month this year.
And sector leaders say that this trend will only continue as more drivers get to know about what is still a relatively young industry.
Ray Fernandez, chief executive officer of TyresOnTheDrive, the biggest provider in the mobile fitting industry, said:
“These figures show that more drivers are switching onto the convenience of having tyres changed at a time and place of their choosing. Until recently mobile tyre fitting was really only done for fleet drivers but now we are providing this service for private motorists and this includes caravan and motorhome owners. They can pick a two hour slot, we come to their home and it could not be easier.
“Just as with online shopping and groceries being delivered to your doorstep, this is the way the world is moving as people value convenience.”
