Kwik Fit has launched a seven-day mobile tyre fitting service called Mobile 7, operating within the M25.
The new service was launched due to increased demand for the company’s existing mobile tyre fitting service, and is available from 8.30am to 8.30pm.
Kwik Fit fleet operations director Simon Lucas said: “We have seen significant take-up, particularly for tyres to be fitted during the evening. A total of 40% of Kwik Fit Mobile bookings inside the M25 are now for evening time slots.
“Whether company car and van drivers require the services of Kwik Fit Mobile during the day, evenings or weekends we are able to offer greater convenience with the move to a seven-day offering.”
In order to deliver this new service, eight of the existing vans within the M25 are now double shifted which means the creation of eight new technician jobs. Previously the service operated on a ‘one man, one van’ basis.
Operating hours for the rest of the UK currently remain 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 1pm on a Saturday, however the new ‘Mobile7’ format will roll out to other metropolitan areas during 2017.
