The Sunday Mirror has highlighted the rising cost of keeping a car on the road in a hard-hitting article “Driven off our roads”.
It reports that the costs of replacement tyres has doubled in two years from £78 for the average annual spend for a small family car to a staggering £165 for 2011, while fuel and insurance costs have also soared.
However, savvy motorists are putting the brakes on the rising cost of essentials like tyres and batteries, by going online to find the best prices.
As our regular customers know, etyres operates a free mobile fitting service which means we come to you to change your tyres at home or work and because we don’t have expensive depots to run, our prices are up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street tyre chains.
Our mobile fitting service also means you don’t have to take time out from work or interrupt your daily routine to get your tyres replaced, our fitters come to you at a pre-arranged time to do the job.
