Hometyre - Franchisee Testimonials:
"As the first franchisee, I have been very pleased with the way Hometyre works, and how the guys that run it are willing to listen if you have any ideas on how to improve it. Hometyre is very brand conscious, which is also a big plus, as it doesn't matter where you are in the UK, the van and the service you get from the operator will be the same. I'm now into my 6th year, having re-signed for another 5 years, and even after a recession, we have made good headway. New customers are still coming in, and I am getting many repeat customers. Even my customers tell me how good the sales team are, and how they will help to find the right product for them."
"I joined the team in September 2009 after working in the printing trade for 38 years so running my own business was always going to be a challenge. I decided very early that a franchise suited my needs as I had only worked for the one organisation in printing so I had limited knowledge on how to start and more importantly grow a successful business. From day one Andy and the team have been honest and supportive particularly in the early days when understandably there were more day-to-day issues to deal with. The sales team are the backbone of the business and my customers regularly comment on their knowledge and friendly attitude. I will be soon entering my fourth year at Hometyre and it is very pleasing to know I made the right choice in joining the team and I have no hesitation in recommending Hometyre to any new franchisee."
"I had been looking for the past couple of years for the right opportunity to break out on my own. I had looked at the various franchise opportunities and was very impressed with the livery and fitment of the van which provides a modern and professional look and feel. Working from a mobile platform and meeting people to provide a complete solution to their tyre replacements needs was also a strong motivation. The icing on the cake for the choice of Hometyre was the additional value adds services such as TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitor System) replacement and wheel alignment meant that customers need no longer look for fixed site companies. I also liked the large post code territory allowing me the opportunity to grow."
"I had a light bulb moment when I had first-hand experience of using a mobile tyre fitting company that led me on a journey to Hometyre. After reviewing other mobile options I felt that the Hometyre ethos and support met my aspirations. I was able to sample a day in the life with Sam from Sheffield and that really helped my decision to join the Hometyre team."
"I qualified as a diesel mechanic many years ago and following a few years in the retail industry I decided to return to the trade so a Hometyre franchise suited my abilities perfectly. The Hometyre business model and training I received have been fantastic and I really enjoy working for myself knowing I have the backing and support of a nation-wide brand. From initial contact to becoming a franchisee was very smooth. I spent some time at Head Office and then a couple of weeks on the road with established franchisees before I was out on the road and covering my own area. The Head Office team were always on hand to respond and help with any questions and queries I had."
"I'm really happy with how the business is going. The model works, and by following it closely I have seen my business continue to grow."
