Pellon Tyres Battling On
Pellon Tyres Battling On
By 2022, we are still making progress. The direction of the business world is toward massive conglomerates. the little guys getting more and further behind.
Recently, the enormous Halfords acquired “National Tyres”, which have hundreds of locations.
No matter how challenging, we must continue to fight to maintain our market share for tyres. Of course, in the local Halifax, United Kingdom, area. We at Pellon Tyres have a strong local and national web presence. I think we are keeping up with the best of the rest as a result of this. Sales are brisk, and we might finally be in for a cold and snowy winter. Cold winters provide a good opportunity for a smaller tyre company to secure a winter tyre sale. I believe that we are quicker to respond to our customers’ needs.
Another advantage of the colder weather will be the increase in our battery sales. Battery sales will double as the temperature falls below freezing. This is where our customers benefit from buying from the big boys. We do not charge for installing a battery purchased from us. A certain large competitor actually charges a fee for fitting the battery! So you know where to come when you need a new battery ?
When it snows, the winter tyre market becomes active. Consequently, daily sales inquiries may treble with the forecasted snowfall. This is the situation as I am writing this post. The UK could be in for a white Christmas. This means winter tyre sales and a chance for us to make some extra sales. The British economy is currently suffering a great deal. The cost of gasoline and heating is over the top, and inflation is considerable. However, I believe that this is where we outperform our more powerful competitors.
We can make speedy cost saving decisions
So, as a small business, we can better control costs and make quick, accurate judgments regarding business costs thanks to our hands-on approach. Once we have a better handle on our costs, we can set fair prices for our customers who are short on cash. Heating and lighting costs have been steadily rising in the past few years. So, this gave me the chance to reduce our costs by making our electric system more efficient.
Conclusively, this meant a total rewire of the premises. I am convinced that the old system was leaking power and expensive to run. At the same time as all our light fitting’s were replaced we replaced all our lights with LED lighting. Thus helping to reduce any further rise in electric charges.
This is just a small part of running a small business! It must be a constant battle against rising costs. So, not only when we hear the shocking news about how bad the economy is and how we must all tighten our belts to stay afloat, As a business owner, this must be part of the job. Keeping up and updating your machinery should also be a priority.
In normal economic times, the buyer has the upper hand. So if you want to replace an older piece of equipment, then you will have the upper hand in buying at the right price. Don’t wait for a recession to see monthly price increases caused by inflation. Keep your machinery up to date, including office machines such as computers and the latest software.
This advice is on how to keep your business fit and be ready for a battle with the bigger competitors in your niche. especially when there is an economic crisis to battle against. Costs are always under your control as a business owner.
