There’s nothing worse than preparing to set off on your caravan and motorhome holidays, or getting ready to leave your campsite, to find you’ve got a puncture on your tow car or leisure vehicle.
Or that you’ve carried out your caravan tyre PACT or motorhome tyre checks and you find you need to replace them.
But new data shows that more and more caravan, campervan and motorhome owners are using the convenience of a ‘we-come-to-you’ mobile tyre fitting service.
Figures from mobile fitters, TyresOntheDrive, show that in the past three years the number of call-outs from caravanners and motorhomers has rocketed by more than 80 per cent.
Mobile tyre fitting means families can be back on the road within a couple of hours and carry on with their holiday plans. It’s the fastest growing sector of the replacement tyre industry as more drivers choose to have their puncture fixed where they are instead of having to remove the wheel and take it to a high street centre.
Ray Fernandez, chief executive officer of TyresOnTheDrive, said: “We have seen enormous growth over the past few years among caravan and motorhome owners discovering a puncture either at home before they set off or when they want to hitch up and head back. No one wants to be delayed on their holiday journeys and we offer the peace of mind and convenience of coming to you.
“In the past three years alone we’ve seen a rise of 81 per cent in caravan and motorhome call-outs and I’m sure we’ll see even more this season. We come to where the customer is and when the customer wants and as that message gets around, more people are turning to us for help.”
