After 20 years in the automotive industry, including a 10 year tenure managing various tyre retail outlets around Victoria, Michael a qualified motor mechanic, joins the JAXQuickfit family as owner of the new Preston Franchise.
“I am truly thrilled to be part of the JAXQuickfit network, my wife and I have long wanted to run our own business, and to me the JAXQuickfit brand is the industry benchmark.”
“As we began our research, we came across this location and immediately thought it would make an ideal premises, I called JAXQuickfit only to be told that they had already secured the site, and from then on everything just fell into place,”
The Preston tyre store will offer customers JAXQuickfit’s extensive range of tyres and wheels together with steering, brake and suspension servicing.
The new store is equipped with the latest state-of-the art tyre servicing technology, including the JAXQuickfit BOS Balance Optimisation System, a premium balance guaranteeing the smoothest driving possible.
Five staff in total will service customer needs which in the busy Preston area will include passenger, four wheel drive, vans, fleet and light truck.
“We are in a high traffic area, our central location just five minutes away from Northland Shopping Centre will keep us extremely busy.”
Fiona, a qualified book keeper, has been instrumental in the floor plan of the new tyre site, providing a females perspective.
“The layout of the store and provisions for a comfortable waiting area have been carefully considered for servicing all customer types, but especially for females,” Fiona Failla said.
“Females, make up a large section of the tyre buying public, and our aim is to make them feel as comfortable and informed as possible in what is traditionally viewed as a male dominated industry,”
