Tyre retail franchise boosts its network

Fast fit tyre retail franchise HiQ has boosted its business by signing two business partnerships with car dealerships in England and Scotland.

The two partnerships HiQ has made are with David Harrison Ltd in Peebles, Scotland and Allams of Dorking.

HiQ's Franchise Development Manager Peter Tye said: "These are important partnerships for HiQ and ones that we are delighted with. They could set a precedent for the way that our fast fit network operates and a great deal of time and effort has gone into securing both agreements. This is a massive coup for us. Businesses are looking to diversify and if they are only dealing with one brand, then they are limiting themselves.

"Becoming a HiQ franchise owner allows them to open themselves up to a multitude of car brands, which allows them to expand their customer base and increase turnover.

"We believe that we can significantly enhance David Harrison Ltd and Allams of Dorking's existing fast fit facilities and make them profitable arms of their businesses.

"It is a perfect fit for everyone concerned and we can't wait to see the HiQ sign outside the forecourts. We think that we have stolen a march on our rivals."

David Harrison Ltd Operations Manager, Martin Cutbush, said: "We wanted to look at a brand that could offer outstanding marketing and internet provisions and HiQ was the ideal choice for us. One thing that we have struggled with is getting people to log on to a website to look at their tyre size and make before ordering them with us. HiQ can resolve this with their award winning website and we look forward to seeing the results."
