Tapin Tyres is a family-run business that has been operating for more than 12 years. It was founded in Bramley in 2003, and relocated to Andover when the land was sold to a construction company for development.
Family is at the centre of the company and their focus is on customer service and accessibility for all drivers, from young women who are driving their first car to more experienced owners with multiple vehicles, such as sports cars and motorbikes, specialising in a wide range of tyres to suit all performances, budgets and demands.
At Tapin Tyres, you will find daughters and sisters working as part of the team. Every Wednesday is Ladies’ Day, when female customers can pop in – without an appointment to have a wheel check and tyre consultation, ask for advice and enjoy a cup of tea.
Tapin Tyres’ director, Amanda Delaney, said: “We know from experience that some women find the typically male-dominated world of the quick fit tyre garages a little intimidating. As a result they don’t tend to check their tyres as much as they should or perhaps rely on a man to do it for them. We want to change that and create a place where women feel comfortable coming along and asking for help.
“I have two daughters who both drive and like every mother, it’s important for me to know that the cars they are driving are safe, and a major part of that is the tyre performance. That is why we offer somewhere for women to go to get advice, information and a service, and feel comfortable. We see customers not as a number but as people.”
Another crucial part of the business is tyre choice and now Tapin’s brand new tyre online service has gone live, customers are able to select and buy their tyres from the comfort of their own home. And it’s so simple to use; you don’t have to know anything about tyres, just type in your registration number and the team do the rest, finding a range of tyres suitable for your car and you choose the one that is right for your budget and driving needs.
Once you have selected your tyre, it is ordered for you and you can book your own appointment at a time when its convenient for you then pay when fitted.
Tapin Tyres offers a full range of services, supplying new competitively priced tyres, part-worn tyres, wheel balancing and tyre checks. We will be taking installation of our new car ramps ready to undertake, servicing , exhausts and brakes within the next two weeks.
You will find Tapin Tyres on the Walworth Business Park, conveniently located to the north of Andover town centre and within easy access from the A303, with plenty of free parking.
Tapin Tyres welcome customers ringing them to ask for advice, there is absolutely no commitment or pressure to buy.
