World wide, internet sales of every conceivable product and service are increasing very quickly. Fundamentally the internet offers a more cost efficient distribution system without the massive overheads associated with retail premises and traditional advertising so the customer can benefit from lower prices.
But there are more benefits to the consumer than just price. We also know how important time management is to consumers, and realized that our site was the best way for us to lower the time that consumers spent on finding and buying tyres. At the tyre store you are vulnerable to spending a lot more money on “upsells.” Things like higher performance and higher profit tyres (for the tyre shop) and new shock absorbers that can improve both your ride and your standing with your credit card company dramatically and make you wish you’d gotten into either crime or medical school.
When you walk into your local tyre shop, they know you are an easy mark for anything wheel-related — shocks, struts and brakes. But when you have done your tyre selection and buying in a leisurly, unpressured manner on the internet at sites like www.tyresales.co.nz , you are much less vulnerable to pressure sales tactics.
And a lot of us just do not enjoy negotiating, its so much easier to just select the best price on the internet. It is important to remember that Tyre Shop sales people, especially in the big Multinational operations, will always quote as high as they can leaving the onus on the customer to try and negotiate a better price. So if you are the sort of person who enjoys bargaining with street traders overseas etc, you just might succeed in negotiating a good deal. But it still will not be as good a price as you can get online. And if you are not a wheeling dealing horse trader, well, you can just end up paying far too much.
So join the trend to buying tyres online, you will save time and free yourself from odious bargaining and sidestep big company pressure tactics. No one knows just how far the trend to the internet tyre sales channel will go, but one thing for certain is that that it is growing very fast!
