One of the challenges repeatedly faced by vehicle owners is storing their outdoor tires during the off-season. You have to handle dirty tires, get a zip-lock bag, and then use up some valuable space in your home that could be used for other things.
Fortunately, many car dealerships are buying storage containers to store their clients’ tires during the off-season. This is a great option for many drivers, as they don’t have to worry about the suitability of their cleaning and storage process, or whether the tires will be in good condition at the end of the storage period.
Containers for storing tires during off-season
Tires are a vital component of your automobile, which is why every dealership should strive to offer the best in care, convenience, and safety when handling seasonal tires. Containers allow you to make good use of extra outside space, while protecting the contents from the elements. This is particularly important considering that exposure to heat and the elements are the key factors that affect a tire’s aging process.
Indeed, proper tire storage is key to maintaining a tire’s integrity, and dealerships can help take the tire storage headache away from their clients. Some of the benefits that you can offer your customers include:
- Secure storage
- Complete tire analysis to check the condition of tires
- First-in-line status for seasonal tire changes
- Next day pick-up/delivery
- No need to handle dirty and heavy tires
- More space in your home/garage
Converting a container for tire storage
When storing tires, in the past, the only options were piling tires on the floor or simply putting them in ordinary tire racks. Unfortunately, placing tires on the floor increases their risk of damage, while racks lack capacity and usually require technicians to remove many tires just to reach the ones they need. This resulted in manhandling of tires and an inability to maximize available space.
However, Secure Containers provides dealerships with tire racks that allow the floor of the storage unit to remain clear and the dealership or tire storage service to access any customer’s set of tires at any given time, offering great convenience.
Besides offering a seasonal storage solution, container-storage services in dealerships give your clients a reason to come in multiple times each year. This, in turn, gives you the opportunity to upsell them with other services like oil changes and other seasonal offers.
