Why Should You Use Tire Storage?
By Integra Tire Canada
When it comes time to get your tires changed over, you may be groaning. Tires are heavy and cumbersome, especially if they are already mounted on wheels. If you don’t have them stored in tire bags, they are probably extremely dirty, or if you do have them in tire bags, they are probably dusty from sitting in your garage for the last 6 months. Luckily, there is a solution that will save you a lot of time and a lot of hassle: tire storage! Have you considered this viable alternative?
Most Signature Tire locations provide a space to store your tires. *
When you trust your tires’ storage to Signature Tire, we’ll keep them in a clean, dry environment until you need them again!
Here’s why this is such a good plan of action:
Space and Time Conservation
The primary benefit of using our tire storage is that you won’t have to find space in your own home to keep your tires. Unmounted tires are bulky, cumbersome, and often soiled. You also run the risk of injuring yourself while lifting your tires in and out of your car’s trunk and onto your garage shelves or tire storage rack. Tires can be dangerous no matter where they are kept because they can easily fall off shelves or topple over, causing damage to property or harm to children, so knowing that your tires are safely stored at your local Signature Tire will give you peace of mind.
Proper Conditions for Storage
Storing your tires properly will extend their life. Tires that aren’t stored properly wear out faster, get damaged more easily, and crack more easily. In order to avoid damage that can be easily avoided, tires should be cleaned before being stored, and we clean every tire before it is stored in one of our facilities. Furthermore, tires should be stored in a cool, dry place. The breakdown of rubber compounds is accelerated by prolonged exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet rays; therefore, tires should never be kept outside. Tires should also be kept away from moisture, so if your garage is prone to flooding, it’s best to store your tires in a proper storage facility.
Expert tire care is what we do best, so you can rest assured that your tires will be cleaned, inspected, and stored in the best possible conditions to ensure their longevity.
Peace of Mind
If you use our tire storage services, you can rest assured that you’ll be prepared for the next season. Once your information is in our system, we can ensure that both before and after your tires are stored, they are inspected. We will check the tread depth, look for punctures, and make sure they’re in good shape for the next season. After inspecting your tires, we can anticipate if there are any problems and prepare them ahead of time so that you can get ready for the upcoming season without any setbacks; this includes getting a new set, if available, or getting one fixed. We will also get you in for your tire changeover before the busy season, so that you won’t have to wait in line. You’ll be able to get in and out quickly!
