At Megatyre, we do not punish our customers for asking us to fit tyres they have bought elsewhere; often from Trademe or online tyre websites. Some Tyre Shops are routinely quoting up to a massive $65.00 to fit customer supplied tyres which really is over the top considering the same tyre shops happily do puncture repairs, which entail a lot more work, for $30.00.
It seems the logic behind these massive tyre fitting charges is some tyre shops contention that they exist to sell tyres and are not in business to run around fitting tyres their cheeky customers have bought elsewhere. So they are charging you a huge fitting price to punish you for buying tyres elsewhere and to grab the profit they feel they are loosing. Well, I subscribe to the simplistic notion that we are here to serve our customers and provide whatever services they require.
Yes, quite a few tyre shops seem to have racked up their tyre fitting prices at the same time; some coincidence. I wonder if they have ever heard of the Commerce Act and if they have any conception of the Commission’s intrusive and unlimited powers of inquiry?
You are most welcome to have your online/internet tyre orders sent direct to our Browns Bay store saving you the need to wait at home for your tyres delivery and then to transport them to us. Just let us know your tyres are coming and we will do the rest for you.
We are happy to fit and balance tyres you supply; our fair price is usually just $25.00 per wheel including gst and disposal of your old tyre. Let me repeat that, we are happy to fit your tyres, we do not turn septic just because you dare to buy your tyres elsewhere.
Hoping to help you with your tyre purchase soon!
