We’re Offering a 20% Discount for Replacement Parts

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

While many are being asked to stay home, healthcare personnel, first responders, delivery drivers, construction workers, and many others are still on the front lines, doing their best to keep us safe, healthy, fed, and well-supplied. Many of our customers also fit into this group of people who are essential to keeping our society running as close to normal as possible.

As members of the community, we are ready to support the people that sacrifice their own safety for ours. That’s why we’re offering a 20% discount on the price of retail parts for all of our products starting now through May 1, 2020.

While it’s not a cure, we want to do what we can to help. The men and women dedicating their lives to protect us during this crisis need reliable transportation now more than ever. With all that’s on their minds during the workday, the last thing they should worry about is not having a reliable air machine to fill up their tires at a gas station or tire shop.

We also understand that this may be a time of financial hardship for many of the businesses we serve. If price is currently standing in the way of repairing your business’s air machines, we hope that this helps.

Now is the most important time for repairs. With fewer drivers on the road, the demand for gasoline, vehicle maintenance, rental cars, or new vehicles may not be as high, but that won’t be the case forever. When this outbreak has passed and regulations are relaxed, we’re sure the first thing many Americans will want to do is go for a road trip. When the time comes, it will be important to make the most out of the spike in business.

We hope that day comes soon and that our entire community remains safe and healthy in the meantime.

Moving Forward as the World Battles COVID-19

By | Events, News, updates | No Comments

As the United States and the world are taking precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking similar measures to keep our team healthy and to do our part in keeping the public safe. While we continue to monitor the situation, our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this pandemic.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend any trade shows until June 1 as we have barred our sales team for traveling for the next few months. While we were looking forward to connecting with many of the professionals in the industries we serve, we understand the potential impact and concern over this outbreak.

We also understand that for many of our customers, the show must go on. Many of the businesses in the convenience store, tire shop, fleet, auto rental, and dealership industries are still open and it is our responsibility to serve them. We plan to continue to do just that.

We may not be able to interact face to face at trade shows as we had planned, but we would love an opportunity to speak with any current or potential customers via phone or email.

There are currently no expected delays in our building, shipping, and servicing process.

While we plan to continue operating under our regular schedule, we will also follow local government regulations as well as CDC and WHO guidelines for social distancing and sanitation. We are also taking extra precautions to protect our employees who are over 50 or have underlying medical conditions.

While there is a lot of concern over the effects of COVID-19 on public health and the economy, it is our goal to be part of the solution. This is why we plan to continue to serve the businesses that rely on us while taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of this virus.

Stay safe everyone.

2020 NETSA Trade Show & Convention

From April 3-4, we’ll be learning and networking side by side with members of the New England Tire & Service Association at the NETSA Trade Show & Convention hosted by Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.

Since our headquarters are located in Warwick, RI, we’re no strangers to the New England tire & service market. We look forward to sharing our experiences with other New Englanders and discussing how we can help their businesses grow. If you’re attending the show, swing by our booth or contact us to book a meeting.

This is a special event for us, not just because it is so close to home, but because we wholeheartedly support the NETSA’s mission. Established in 1952, the organization benefits the public by supporting independently owned tire dealerships and automotive service centers. We are proud to help support this organization that does so much to help businesses in our own community.

NAFA 2020 Institute & Expo

Just a few days after the NETSA Show, we’ll travel to Indianapolis for the NAFA Institute and Expo. From April 6-8, we’ll be exhibiting at the Indiana Convention Center at booth 535. This event will provide us with a great opportunity to meet and catch up with key decision-makers in the fleet management field while showing them how our products can benefit their fleets.

The NAFA Institute and Expo is the largest show for fleet professionals, bringing in over 1,000 attendees from all over the world. Attendees can expect to learn a lot from over 45 peer-led education sessions while building and strengthening relationships as they network on the 60,000 square-foot show floor.

Contact us if you would like to schedule a meeting at the show!

2020 Virginia Automotive Association Convention & Trade Expo

We’ll wrap up the month of April by meeting some of the passionate shop owners that make up the Virginia Automotive Association at their annual expo. From April 24-26, we’ll be exhibiting at the beautiful Omni Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia.

As new members of the Virginia Automotive Association, we’re excited to meet some fellow members in person and show them what we can do to help their shops. We expect this to be an educational show and a great networking opportunity, but we’re also looking forward to experiencing the amazing amenities that The Homestead has to offer.

If you plan on attending the show, we would love an opportunity to connect with you. Feel free to contact us here to set up a meeting or visit us at our booth.
