TIGER WHEEL & TYRE EMPANGENI ENROUTE TO REBUILDING Store team optimistic as post looting clean-up underway

For many South Africans, the July riots and looting will forever be engrained in our psyche – an experience unlike any other that threatened to debilitate our country and divide its people. However, living through this unprecedented experience in 2021 has demonstrated our innate resilience and ability to unite as a country, a nation and as a human race.

“With so many businesses, organizations and communities affected, unfortunately Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni was not immune to the destruction. And, as we continue to survey the damage and estimate our financial loss, we can’t help but be grateful for the safety of our store team and customers,” said Farishta Singh – Group Marketing Executive at TiAuto Investments.

Comilla Naidoo – Store Owner and Manager at Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni, “Not only was our stock completely looted and office computers and electronics stolen, but the interior and exterior of our premises were left vandalized, with additional machinery and equipment damaged. Sifting through the remnants of what was once a successful fitment centre, brimming with brand new tyres and beautiful, shiny wheels; where fitment bays were abuzz with the clanking of metal and enthused chatter of our fitment technicians – there remains a glimmer of hope and quiet optimism that this too shall pass and that we will rise again, more successful than ever!”

Continuing, “Our store is a community staple and home to many loyal customers. As we continue to rebuild, we are thankful for the public’s patience and support, and would like to direct any interim queries to Tiger Wheel Tyre Richards Bay for assistance – 035 789 2668.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre Empangeni employs 12 people, many of whom were able to transfer to surrounding stores. The store is estimated to reopen toward the end of August 2021 – however updates will be posted across the brand’s social media channels and website.

At this time, Tiger Wheel & Tyre would like to remind customers that they stand in solidarity with the anti-looting initiative and that no loose wheels, tyres or batteries will be fitted without a valid sales invoice.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre to refuse to fit any looted tyres.

Customers requesting fitment of loose wheels, tyres, or automotive batteries will be required to provide proof of purchase.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre said today that the company will not fit any loose wheels, tyres, and automotive batteries without a valid tax invoice from the point of purchase. This is due to the recent looting that has devastated the nation and all sectors of its economy.

Tyre stores and distributors throughout South Africa, particularly in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng, have suffered enormous losses. Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s store in Empangeni, for example, was looted and all its stock stolen. As a result, many of the company’s other stores had to be closed to ensure staff safety and protect assets and stock.

The looting was by no means limited to Tiger Wheel & Tyre alone. Retailers, wholesalers, and warehouses throughout the auto-fitment industry were severely affected. Many of the company’s competitors’ stores were looted and destroyed, and the Dunlop warehouse was also invaded and looted.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre stands in solidarity with the anti-looting initiative in the tyre industry and in support of all its fellow auto-fitment centres. The company considers itself to be a proudly South African brand and, as such, has a responsibility to join the country’s efforts to rebuild the nation’s economy.

The company’s decision to request proof of purchase prior to fitment will apply to all Tiger Wheel & Tyre fitment centres throughout South Africa.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre would like to take this opportunity to wish its staff, its stores, and all its competitors the greatest success in rebuilding their businesses. It is only by all South Africans standing together that we can emerge a stronger and safer nation.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre’s Tips to Keep Your Car in Shape During Lockdown

With all South Africa in lockdown, and the majority of vehicles parked for all but the most essential trips, Tiger Wheel & Tyre reminds motorists that even, and perhaps especially, when they are stationary for long periods of time, cars still need some TLC.

Here are the company’s top five tips to keep your car in shape during lockdown:

  1. Keep the battery charged. Start the car and let it idle for 15-20 minutes, at least once a week. Do this outside or keep your garage door wide open and any doors leading into the house firmly shut. Or disconnect the battery and connect it to a trickle charger, if you have one.

 

  1. Check your license disc expiry date! The only thing more tedious than lockdown is figuring out how to renew an expired license. Renew yours via your Tiger Advantage Plus Protect a benefit plan, or online through your local city council’s e-Services portal. There’s even a WhatsApp license payment service called ChatBack that will renew your license for a fee.

 

  1. Keep your tyres inflated. It’s not just driving, but the passage of time that makes air escape from tyres. If you’re able to inflate them at home, do that first before making essential trips or when lockdown ends and you return to work. Maintaining the correct tyre pressure avoids flat spots and protects the tyre’s sidewall from damage.

 

  1. Clean your car. Bird droppings, water stains and even dust can get baked into the paintwork, causing lasting damage. Washing your car will prevent this from happening, and besides it’s a great way to mix things up and pass the time during lockdown.

 

  1. Be safe in all the ways that count. Keep your vehicle in tip-top safe shape; drive safely; and when you’re out on essential trips, keep your distance from people you don’t live with, don’t touch your face, and wash your hands when you’re done.
