Hotel for Tyres – getting ready for Winter with Pulman.


EVERYONE hopes that the snow and ice which
caused drivers so many problems in previous winters will not return this year,
but the chances are that freezing conditions will again take hold.


In response,
Pulman, a family business with Volkswagen, SEAT and Skoda retailers across the
North East, is offering a winter tyre and service programme for all makes and
models, under the name Hotel 4 Tyres to help keep customers safe and fully
prepared for winter.


Hotel 4
Tyres started last winter offering drivers the convenience of winter tyres at
excellent rates and a fully comprehensive service, all included.


Last year
Dainippon Screen (UK) Ltd booked their fleet, which included a range of
Volkswagen and Audi cars, in for the Hotel 4 Tyres service. A year has passed
and they are re-fitting their winter tyres again for this winter.

Mr Colin
Hall, a Field Service Engineer for Dainippon Screen (UK) Ltd comments:
is a great service. We must have winter tyres fitted as part of our company directive
and our Fleet Manager has been looking for a winter tyre service for a long
time. We are a local business based in Newton Aycliffe and when we found
Hotel4Tyres from Pulman it was ideal. We don’t have to think about it, the
tyres are swapped over and stored with no hassle. It’s the storing of both
winter and summer tyres and the convenience that make it Pulman’s Hotel4Tyre
service unique.


The Pulman
service and facilities are always fantastic, with free drinks and wifi while
you wait, at least I can still continue working. Winter tyres do make a big
difference when driving, you definitely feel more confident. At Dainippon, we
have a mixture of Volkswagen and Audi’s so it’s great to find a service that can
equipped all makes and models. I would definitely recommend the Hotel4Tyres
service from Pulman. It’s convenient and the service is great.”


Collins, Parts Manager for Pulman, said:
"We believe in delivering a

Collins, continued, “we’ve developed a user friendly website, which
gives viewers useful tips and hints to stay safe during winter, along with
clear prices for each type of tyre for all makes and models. The website also
has a very easy to use online booking service as well making it even easier for
customers to stay safe this winter.”


A number
of facts highlight the advantages of fitting winter tyres. The UK
traditionally has five months during which the average temperature falls below
7C, which is the point at which summer tyre performance starts to drop away.
Waiting for snow or freezing conditions may be leaving it too late to switch to
winter tyres.


braking distance of a winter tyre in cold conditions is up to ten per cent
shorter than a normal tyre. In addition, a winter tyre is made with a higher
natural rubber content which keeps tyres soft and flexible, even in colder
weather conditions.


Using the
correct tyres for the weather conditions will prolong their life, making winter
tyres a long-term, cost-effective and safe solution for winter driving.


From providing complimentary refreshments to all customers,
through to free wireless internet access and a host of servicing offers
catering for long and short-term customers, Pulman has consistently
demonstrated over the years that delivering a fantastic customer experience are
at the top of its list of priorities.
