International removals firm Rose Removals has switched from a local tyre service provider to national tyre expert ATS Euromaster.
The 35-year-old, Devon-based company had previously sourced its domestic tyre requirements from Mid-Devon tyres for 20 years, but had experience of using the extensive Euromaster network in mainland Europe. ATS Euromaster’s parent company operates across 11 countries on the continent, providing a roadside rapid response service to many visiting UK fleets.
Managing Director George Rose says: “We’ve always been very impressed with Euromaster’s service standards abroad, and ATS Euromaster seemed better placed to offer consistently high standards to our fleet in the UK thanks to its nationwide network. Its tyre management expertise and commitment to professional tyre husbandry is also top of the league.”
The customer’s fleet of 12 vans and 12 trucks will be fitted with a mixture of Avon and Michelin tyres respectively. They will receive fortnightly tyre safety inspections by experienced ATS Euromaster technicians, with written reports detailing overall tyre condition and remaining tread depth provided to the transport team.
Also included in the contract is access to ATS Euromaster’s extensive mobile service fleet, totalling nearly 1,000 tyre-fitting vehicles – the largest of its kind in the UK.
This powerful resource can be pre-booked to carry out routine tyre servicing work across the customer’s sites in Exeter, Crediton, Barnstaple and Okehampton. The fleet can also be called upon to provide a 24/7 roadside rapid response service in the event of a tyre-related breakdown anywhere in the UK. Technicians aim to arrive on the scene within 71 minutes*, and always aim to replace vehicles’ tyres according to the defined brand policy.
“We’re delighted with the service so far,” says Rose. “Consistency of service across the fleet has improved, as our UK tyre policy now matches what we expect from Euromaster abroad. ATS Euromaster’s tyre purchasing strength is also reflected in the prices we are paying for our preferred tyre brands.”
Rose Removals carries out domestic and commercial removals, both locally, across the UK and overseas. Its commercial services include office relocations and removals for university campuses, councils, museums, charities and court rooms. It is a member of the British Association of Removers.
The fleet is comprised primarily of Volkswagen LT, Volkswagen Transporter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans, with a mixture of trucks from 7.5 to 44 tonnes.
