With winter fast approaching, many drivers are starting to think about how they’re going to store their tires until next spring. ❄️
More and more people are turning to their favorite car dealer or mechanic shop to store their tires.
Tires are made of rubber, which is susceptible to damage from extreme temperatures and UV rays. Consequently, storing tires in an unheated space can cause them to dry out and crack. 🤕
So, by entrusting their tires to their dealer, customers can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that they’ll be well looked after over the winter months.
As a dealership owner, while this may seem like a simple enough task, it’s important to make sure you’re ready to meet the demand. 🤯
Firstly, you must have sufficient space to store the tires. Secondly, you need to ensure that the tires are stored correctly to prevent damage. Finally, you’ll need to set up a system to keep track of which tires belong to which customers.

What benefits do tire racks offer your dealership’s customers and employees?
The tire rack offers a number of advantages to customers and the company, and it’s for all these reasons that we recommend having one in your car dealer’s garage 😉
Primarily, they provide a place where tires can be safely stored while waiting to be fitted to a vehicle. This protects the customer’s investment and prevents damage to the tires.
Protecting customers’ tires from damage
Tires are a vital part of any vehicle, and good tire maintenance is essential to keep your car or truck running safely and trouble-free.
One way to protect your tires is to store them on a tire rack. They keep tires off the ground and away from the elements, which can damage them prematurely.
In addition, tire racks help prevent damage from other vehicles or tools in the garage. 😮
By storing your customers’ tires in a rack, you can keep them in good condition and extend their lifespan. Believe us, they’ll be happy about it! 🤩
Keeping customers’ tires organized
Tire racks also help to keep the dealership organized and tidy.
They provide a designated place for each type of tire, making it easy to find the right one when you need it.
A single rack can hold dozens of tires. To make your job even easier, equip yourself with labeled divisions so you can separate the different types of tire according to each customer’s contact.
This can save you time and frustration when it’s time for your customer’s tire change and you’re trying to find his tires.
Tire racks free up space for other garage operations
In terms of efficiency, a tire rack will free up space, so since nothing will be “in the way”, you’ll have plenty of room to work on your vehicles! 🙌🏻
Tires can take up a lot of space, so by storing them in a rack, companies can free up valuable storage space.
Too often, dealership garages end up cluttered and disorganized, making it difficult to find the tools we need or work on customer cars. 🚗
By storing your tires off the floor, you can free up valuable space for other activities. A dealership, because of the large turnover of vehicles it deals with, needs to be tidy!
Anyone who has ever worked in a dealership or any garage knows how important it is to keep the floor clear.
Not only does this give a more professional appearance, it also helps prevent accidents. It’s all too easy for a customer to trip over a loose tire or tool. 🥵
That’s why many dealers invest in tire racks. By storing tires off the ground, dealers can help reduce the risk of accidents.
Keeping tires away from driveways and traffic areas is the best way to prevent accidents. 😇
Tire racks contribute equally to employee and customer safety, making them an essential part of any well-managed dealership garage. So the safety benefits are well worth it.
Why are tire racks more important than you think?
Tire racks are an essential part of any dealership, maximizing the efficiency of operations on customer cars.
By keeping tires organized, it’s easier for technicians to find the right tire for each customer’s vehicle.
What’s more, by preventing them from being damaged in the spring, when they’ll be high up on the ground, the dealer can avoid having to replace damaged tires.
Finally, they help reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace. Your employees and customers alike will be reassured to see a tire rack in your car dealership.
As a result, tire racks can save the car dealership money and time, and they can also improve the safety of customers’ vehicles.
Don’t forget, anyone who is well organized saves time! And whoever saves time saves money, because time is money! We’re not teaching you anything here.
