TIGER WHEEL & TYRE INTRODUCES A NEW WAY TO PAY

On board with PayJustNow – the hassle free, interest-free ‘South African Now-Now’ way to pay

Tiger Wheel & Tyre are excited to announce a new partnership with financial service provider PayJustNow, that presents consumers with a better way to pay, while also proving to be a responsible and rewarding alternative to credit.

“At Tiger Wheel & Tyre, we are constantly looking at fresh and innovative ways to connect with our customers and PayJustNow is all that and so much more. By offering consumers a quick, easy, convenient, and financially savvy way to pay for the things they need, vehicle owners are more likely to invest in their safety and the safety of their families and other road users, through proper vehicle care and maintenance,” shared Farishta Singh – Group Marketing Executive at TiAuto Investments.

Adding, “Unfortunately, we are living in a tough economy and by partnering with PayJustNow, we hope to provide customers with a payment solution that none of our competitors are currently offering, while also encouraging smart budgeting.”

“Another reason to love the PayJustNow concept is the super simple application process that takes just minutes. As we like to say – shopping for the wheels you love and tyres you need just got easier.” concluded Singh.

The PayJustNow plan enables shoppers to pay for purchases in three equal instalments: “Now” – paid at the time of purchase, “Now Now” – paid at the beginning of the next month, and “Just Now” – paid at the beginning of the month after that.

In additional to launching the partnership with PayJustNow, 2022 marks a significant milestone for Tiger Wheel & Tyre as the flagship brand delight in their 55-year celebration. To commemorate the journey, they aim at celebrating the consumer by giving back. Shoppers stand a chance to win one of 55 R2022 vouchers that will be awarded throughout the year.

TIGER WHEEL & TYRE CELEBRATES MILESTONE

55 Years of Getting South Africans Home Safely

 

This year, award-winning auto-fitment retailer, Tiger Wheel & Tyre celebrates 55 years of delighting motorists across South Africa.

“Looking back at our journey over the last five decades, it has certainly been a roller coaster of emotions. I have been part of that journey for the last 24 years myself, and it has been an absolute pleasure and blessing,” conveyed Alex Taplin – Group CEO, TiAuto Investments.

Continuing, “I am immensely proud and blessed to be part of this ever-growing and evolving brand; and watching the expansion from 15 stores in 1998 to over a hundred stores nearly 25 years later has been a really fulfilling experience.”

Over the years, Tiger Wheel & Tyre has cemented its place in the lives of so many families – a legacy that has become a mainstay within communities across the country. From planning road trips with loved ones, being part of someone’s big moment, to daily errands, the Tiger Wheel & Tyre name is immediately recognisable and synonymous with trust, reliability, and industry expertise, and hearing South Africans sing along to the famous and catchy Tiger Wheel & Tyre Jingle just never gets old.

“At the heart of our brand are our customers, who for generations have shown us love and loyalty. Additionally, our amazing and hardworking team is one of the main pillars of our success, with many individuals having grown through the decades with the brand itself,” noted Taplin.

“Our success in the market has taken hard work and dedication. We pride ourselves in being our own worst critics as we thrive on that constant tension of self-reflection and improvement.  We have experienced our share of challenges in our noisy commercial landscape, with the recent pandemic being an unfortunate feature. The organisation simply adapts, adjusts and move forwards. Chaos is often the most opportune time to grow and birth new solutions and with this, our “Xpress Pick-Up & Delivery Service” was born – which was our way of getting closer to our customers while still maintaining social distancing.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre takes pride in its offering – from premium products and quality services to expert advice from a team of well-trained professionals. Over the years, the brand has elevated its range by adding to its arsenal – namely in the form of 4×4 Fitment Centres, Wheel Collision Xpress Repair Centres and most recently, PG Glass services, all conveniently available at selected stores.

Add to that, sustained partnerships with other leading businesses in financial services, Fleet Management, 4×4 accessories and vehicle maintenance support services, to name a few, completes the vision for expanding Whole Life Mobility solutions.

To commemorate the 55-year journey, Tiger Wheel & Tyre aim to celebrate the consumer by giving back. Shoppers stand a chance to win one of 55, R2,022.00 vouchers that will be awarded throughout the year. You are also invited take a ride through the decades, reflecting on some of the brand’s greatest milestones.

“Back to work now, there’s still lots to be done! Thank you, South Africa, for bringing life to our ambitions. We are thrilled and honoured to be able to serve our customers and communities over many decades to come.” expressed Taplin.

TIGER WHEEL & TYRE IS BREWING UP A WHOLE LATTE LOVE

Beloved brand launches Coffee 4 Good initiative to help support rising entrepreneurs

South Africa’s favourite automotive fitment centre, Tiger Wheel & Tyre, have recently launched Tiger Beans – an ED (enterprise development) program aimed at offering customers a fresh and satisfying cup of coffee; while also providing unemployed South Africans the opportunity to help develop a small business for themselves that sustains a steady income flow.

“Hospitality was one of the hardest hit industries during the pandemic, with over 3000 Baristas losing their jobs. As part of our ongoing Corporate Social Investment (CSI), Tiger Wheel & Tyre have teamed up with König Coffee to provide budding businessmen and businesswomen the skills and equipment required to maintain their very own coffee stand inside selected Tiger Wheel & Tyre stores”, said Farishta Singh, Group Marketing Executive – Tiger Wheel & Tyre.

Continuing, “We are absolutely percolating with excitement! This has been such a great opportunity for us to pay it forward through these hard-working and committed individuals who see the long-term potential that these small businesses have to offer.”

“All training, equipment, product, and operating costs are covered by Tiger Wheel & Tyre. This essentially affords the baristas a sustainable work environment with zero set up costs to work for themselves, while garnering a monthly remuneration, a share in the growth of the business and invaluable experience.”

The next time you stop by your local award-winning Tiger Wheel & Tyre fitment centre for some much-needed love for your vehicle, don’t forget to refuel, recharge and refill with a freshly brewed cuppa for only R20 while you wait – it’s for a great cause!

Currently, there are two pilot stores that have incorporated the Tiger Beans initiative, namely, Tiger Wheel & Tyre Claremont, Western Cape and Tiger Wheel & Tyre Midrand, Gauteng. Expansion plans are set to roll out at another six locations in the next two months, with additional sites to follow, so look out for the Tiger Beans logos in store and please support the young men and women as they develop their very own businesses, and grab your delicious caffeine fix as you go

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and for the safety of our customers and staff, Tiger Wheel & Tyre continues to implement strict hygiene protocols and social distancing across all stores.

 

 

Powering the way. Tiger Wheel & Tyre is going solar.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre is driving the green initiative with the launch of the company’s first solar-powered store.

South Africa’s favourite automotive parts and fitment brand marks another milestone in its journey towards a healthier environment – and its drive for carbon neutrality.

The Company’s Fourways store is very proud to be the first of the Tiger Wheel & Tyre family to complete the move to solar power. This is just the first store to go solar, as the Company continues its mission to prioritise a carbon-neutral footprint, with all stores running on solar energy within the next three years. Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s other fitment centres are currently in various phases of this transition.

The Company cemented its decision to use renewable energy for a number of reasons. The most important of these is the brand’s stated responsibility to ensure a healthier future for generations to come.

Other important factors that informed this decision include soaring energy prices, and the uncertainty of loadshedding in South Africa.

Alex Taplin, TiAuto Investments CEO, is passionate about the project. “Society, and that includes us, our shareholders and financiers have a duty to take active steps towards using clean renewable energy sources to lessen our impact upon the environment. State-of-the-art technology that embraces sustainability is now readily available, so it would be highly remiss of us were we not to incorporate these technologies and obvious benefits into our everyday operations.”

“The advantages of solar power are tangible and measurable. By way of example, if we take just the initial Fourways store pilot project, we’re looking at a reduction of over 28,000kg of reduced CO² emissions per annum. That’s the equivalent of 64 trees saved.”

“And that’s just one store! Once we have fully executed stores in Phase 1 to solar power, representing 16 stores, we will be reducing emissions equivalent by over 560,000 kg of CO², as well as reducing our oil equivalent by 80,000 litres a year. That’s the same as saving 1,200 trees a year. We call on other businesses to move to sustainable energy, as we will all benefit in the end.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s solar solution is all the more impressive as it enables stores to continue full operation at normal capacity, without any reduction in our product or superior service offerings. What’s more, thanks to being increasingly self-sufficient from a power supply perspective, Company’s power system is now even more stable, and in a small way we can assist by reducing reliance on an already overburdened Eskom Grid.

Taplin was very complimentary about Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s solar power service provider’s delivery – Easy Power. “A flawless job. They had the system fully operational within 14 days. Highly recommend them.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre partners with PG Glass

South Africa’s leading automotive parts and services brands team up to offer customers even more choice.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre and PG Glass celebrated the launch of their commercial venture at a signing ceremony at the end of November. The ceremony was attended by Charles Bromley PG Group CEO and Sandy Beekhuizen Legal Advisor, and Alex Taplin and Charl Drury, CEO and CFO of TiAuto Investments respectively.

“This was the culmination of many months of hard work, pilot testing, and streamlining of processes,” said Taplin. “PG Glass and Tiger Wheel & Tyre are both powerful automotive consumer brands, and it’s wonderful to unite and offer our customers an even wider range of products and services.”

PG Glass will offer selected service offerings at selected Tiger Wheel & Tyre stores. The stores that took part in the pilot project were Festival Mall, Cresta, Westgate, Soweto, Sunninghill, Sandton, and Fourways, and on the strength of this a structured nationwide rollout will now commence. Tiger Wheel & Tyre and PG Glass look forward to welcoming you for your windscreen replacement and repair needs at a store near you soon

Tiger Wheel & Tyre now offers a wheel repair service at all of its stores

Customers can have damaged wheels repaired at all Tiger Wheel & Tyre stores nationwide. The company offers this service either through its new Xpress Wheel Straightening Centres or by sending the damaged alloy wheels to Wheel Collision.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre, South Africa’s largest and most trusted automotive services company, has increased its offering to motorists throughout South Africa. It now offers a full range of tyre repair services at its stores nationwide in partnership with Wheel Collision, the country’s only SABS approved wheel repair brand.

Xpress Wheel Straightening Centres have been opened at selected Tiger Wheel & Tyre outlets throughout the country. Stores that do not, at present, have Xpress Wheel Straightening Centres on-site, will send damaged tyres to Wheel Collision’s state-of-the-art facilities for repair.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre recognizes that it is often more cost effective to repair an alloy wheel than replace it. So, it uses world-class technology to repair these wheels to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) standards.

Customers now have quick, easy, and affordable access to a full range of damaged wheel repairs, including wheel straightening, full refurbishment, polishing, powder coating, and custom paint finishing for those that want to keep the same style wheel or change the color and finish.

The company makes safety a priority and uses X-ray machines to ensure safe and quality wheel repairs. Tiger Wheel & Tyre also offers a lifetime warranty on workmanship and a manufacturer’s warranty on paintwork.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre does not, for safety reasons, repair wheels that have been repaired repeatedly and are now too thin, that have four or more fatigue cracks, or that have cracks or damage across the spokes, the hub of the wheel, or valve hole. Repairs to steel or chrome wheels are also not offered.

This dedicated wheel-repair offering is in partnership with Wheel Collision, fully acquired by parent company, TiAuto Investments, in December of last year.

TIGER WHEEL & TYRE EMPANGENI ENROUTE TO REBUILDING Store team optimistic as post looting clean-up underway

For many South Africans, the July riots and looting will forever be engrained in our psyche – an experience unlike any other that threatened to debilitate our country and divide its people. However, living through this unprecedented experience in 2021 has demonstrated our innate resilience and ability to unite as a country, a nation and as a human race.

“With so many businesses, organizations and communities affected, unfortunately Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni was not immune to the destruction. And, as we continue to survey the damage and estimate our financial loss, we can’t help but be grateful for the safety of our store team and customers,” said Farishta Singh – Group Marketing Executive at TiAuto Investments.

Comilla Naidoo – Store Owner and Manager at Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni, “Not only was our stock completely looted and office computers and electronics stolen, but the interior and exterior of our premises were left vandalized, with additional machinery and equipment damaged. Sifting through the remnants of what was once a successful fitment centre, brimming with brand new tyres and beautiful, shiny wheels; where fitment bays were abuzz with the clanking of metal and enthused chatter of our fitment technicians – there remains a glimmer of hope and quiet optimism that this too shall pass and that we will rise again, more successful than ever!”

Continuing, “Our store is a community staple and home to many loyal customers. As we continue to rebuild, we are thankful for the public’s patience and support, and would like to direct any interim queries to Tiger Wheel Tyre Richards Bay for assistance – 035 789 2668.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni employs 12 people, many of whom were able to transfer to surrounding stores. The store is estimated to reopen toward the end of August 2021 – however updates will be posted across the brand’s social media channels and website.

At this time, Tiger Wheel & Tyre would like to remind customers that they stand in solidarity with the anti-looting initiative and that no loose wheels, tyres or batteries will be fitted without a valid sales invoice.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre are committed to providing consumers with expert advice, superior fitment services and products from leading brands in wheels, tyres and batteries. For more information visit www.twt.to or follow the brand on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the handle @TigerWheelnTyre

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and for the safety of our customers and staff, Tiger Wheel & Tyre continues to implement and encourage strict hygiene protocols and social distancing across all stores.

 

Tiger Wheel & Tyre to refuse to fit any looted tyres.

Customers requesting fitment of loose wheels, tyres, or automotive batteries will be required to provide proof of purchase.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre said today that the company will not fit any loose wheels, tyres, and automotive batteries without a valid tax invoice from the point of purchase. This is due to the recent looting that has devastated the nation and all sectors of its economy.

Tyre stores and distributors throughout South Africa, particularly in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng, have suffered enormous losses. Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s store in Empangeni, for example, was looted and all its stock stolen. As a result, many of the company’s other stores had to be closed to ensure staff safety and protect assets and stock.

The looting was by no means limited to Tiger Wheel & Tyre alone. Retailers, wholesalers, and warehouses throughout the auto-fitment industry were severely affected. Many of the company’s competitors’ stores were looted and destroyed, and the Dunlop warehouse was also invaded and looted.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre stands in solidarity with the anti-looting initiative in the tyre industry and in support of all its fellow auto-fitment centres. The company considers itself to be a proudly South African brand and, as such, has a responsibility to join the country’s efforts to rebuild the nation’s economy.

The company’s decision to request proof of purchase prior to fitment will apply to all Tiger Wheel & Tyre fitment centres throughout South Africa.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre would like to take this opportunity to wish its staff, its stores, and all its competitors the greatest success in rebuilding their businesses. It is only by all South Africans standing together that we can emerge a stronger and safer nation.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre is one of South Africa’s leading branded tyre, wheel, and automotive battery suppliers. Tiger Wheel & Tyre operates from over 100 fitment centres across the country, visit www.twt.to for your nearest store.
