Tyre Girl offer quality, affordable tyres in Auckland
The tyre industry is a very blokey business but Annie Tuck and Doreen Gibbs couldn’t wait to open their “Tyre Girl” Tyre bay alongside their already very successful automotive repair workshop Mayne Automotive Onehunga, Auckland.
They wanted to try and “feminise” the tyre industry and hence the name Tyre Girl. Tyres are usually thought of as those black dirty bits of rubber the car rides on but we wanted to develop the business as well as educate car owners using a fresh approach to tyres. Issues such as tyre maintenance and tyre recycling are very important.
Mayne Automotive Onehunga has been open 10 years . Tyre Girl is situated next door to Mayne Automotive Onehunga in Selwyn Street.
Obviously the Tyre Girl add on was a perfect fit for the business they were already in and it gave the team another service to offer our clients. “Customer Service is a strong focal point of our business, says Annie and we are committed to ongoing training and keeping our Tyre Technicians up to date with new methods and technology.”
“They’re a great team and I know they find it very satisfying to be able to talk with a client about their particular car and therefore their tyre requirements, like safety……….. because they carry the kids all day from kindy to school and home or someone in a 4 wheel drive who likes to spend the weekend off roading but drives around Auckland City during the week. Each have different requirements in respect to tyres.
