HIGH PRESSURE TYRE SALES!! DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the 1999 Simpson's episode ''Sunday Cruddy Sunday'' Homer goes to the local tyre business, High-Pressure Tire Sales, to redeem a coupon for a free wheel balance which Bart has given him for his birthday.
Once inside the depot, the Manager impounds his car on the grounds that it's dangerous and wont let him leave until he buys four new tyres. Homer parts with $500 or ''$600 with the tip'' and suffers the indignity of having the fitters point and laugh at him through the glass window.
Those of us in the tyre and motor industry would look at this episode in the knowledge that a reputation for overselling to the customer exists in our industry, worldwide.
Thankfully at Heffernan Tyres our approach is somewhat different to the Springfield model. The customer is attended to by one of our many experienced Tyre Technicians. She or He will be shown and explained any abnormalities or wear damage to their vehicles tyres and then referred to the ladies in our front office.
Our front office staff, Fidelma, Mary and Anne have years of experience in the tyre industry and will make recommendations based on that experience. We have a consultative approach to sales which offers our customers choice not '' High Pressure'' in comfortable surroundings. Our Air Conditioned waiting area is always spotlessly clean with complimentary Fresh Coffee, Newspapers, Widescreen TV, Children's play area, and Wi-Fi available.
We are wheelchair accessible and family friendly with amusements for the kids if they're getting restless. We are also fortunate to be located close to the famous Kildare Village Shopping Centre and can arrange transfer for our customers to and from the Village whilst their car is being serviced.
We stock all major tyre brands and will have an option to suit most budgets. We are quality brand focused and always recommend same but understand many customers may want less expensive options if for instance; they plan to sell their car in the near future. We will always give our customer a range of price and brand options.
We service most makes of car and fit shocks, brakes and exhausts. We also have a high powered car wash and valet service.
So remember; ''High Pressure Tire Sales'' we are not! Just a relaxed, clean and friendly service. As it should be. Come in and visit us. We're on Dublin Rd. Kildare Town.
