Ok, the ultimate future path for www.tyresales.co.nz is to directly import tyres from China where almost every tyre brand in the world is made.
A Chinese speaking member of our team has just spent the last 2 months in China making tyre industry contacts; not directly with the manufacturers but in the secondary market where the prices are often better than those offered to major tyre companies in the primary market. Almost any brand is available to us at crazy low prices; but being the domestic secondary market, we have to arrange consolidation and freight ourselves. Its not such a simple exercise.
For sure, we are talking about products very well known and current on the New Zealand market, really the only thing different will be our low low price for online tyre sales and mail order tyres. The Chinese secondary market is the perfect supplier for www.tyresales.co.nz ; great variety of branded product, great prices and highly manageable minimums.
Parallel tyre imports will become an important facet of our Tyresales product mix……soon…….. Well, that’s the plan, but it will be a small start and there are plenty of modalities to work through first….
