The HiQ fast fit network has secured a unique automotive deal to become a fast fit specialist partner for a main car dealership.
HiQ will operate from David Harrison Ltd in Peebles. It is the first time that HiQ has secured a partnership with a large UK dealer and it could pave the way for similar arrangements in the future, as HiQ attempts to revolutionise the way that fast fit is delivered to motorists.David Harrison Ltd's operations manager Martin Cutbush said: "We wanted to look at a brand that could offer outstanding marketing and internet provisions and HiQ was the ideal choice for us. One thing that we have struggled with is getting people to log on to a website to look at their tyre size and make before ordering them with us.
"HiQ can resolve this with their award winning website and we look forward to seeing the results."HiQ's regional franchise manager Reg Stephenson said: "This is an important partnership for HiQ and one that we are delighted with. It could set a precedent for the way that our fast fit network operates and a great deal of time and effort has gone into securing this partnership.
"We believe that we can significantly enhance David Harrison Peebles existing fast fit facility and make it a profitable arm of their business.
"It is a perfect fit for everyone concerned and we can't wait to see the HIQ sign outside the forecourt. We think that we have stolen a march on our rivals. We have already had enquiries from other main dealers who are showing similar interest in our network, so the long term possibilities are extremely exciting."HiQ is attempting to position itself as the fast fit network of choice and recently celebrated its first anniversary as a fully franchised network. By the end of 2010 the network will grow to 185 centres all of which will be boasting new award winning corporate identity.
