We’ve seen the sprouts of a newonline tyre sales revolution in recent times, now RACV has also launched a ‘we come to you’ fitting service.
The Victorian motoring organisation has just unveiled its first fully decked-out Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van that is basically a tyre shop on wheels.
RACV’s Brenton Kaitler says the new van can carry out two important roles.
“One side is for new tyre sales, where you can book new tyres online and we come to you to fit and balance them.
“The van is also able to complete wheel alignments, should you need one.
“The other side is puncture repairs, which was identified as an opportunity based on the large number of tyre changes RACV were completing each year.”
The Mercedes-Benz product was chosen following a wide-reaching search for the right van.
Diane Tarr, Mercedes-Benz Vans Aust/NZ boss, says the vehicle is going to be a handy addition to the RACV fleet.
“It’s a fantastic initiative by RACV and makes a lot of sense when you consider how increasingly time poor people are becoming.
“Sprinter is the perfect platform for this type of fitout, plus RACV can be assured that their people are operating in a safe and comfortable vehicle whilst out on the road every day.”
