Something we’ve talked about for sometime now is to be doing our own tyres onsite. Machines, stock, consumables, and training all happened last week…. The reasons we’ve held back has been space, equipment and set up. However recent changes have created more room in the workshop, as well as 2 new junior techs started with us have both come from tyre shops, and have tyre fitting and balancing experience. Being members of 2 of NZ’s largest co-ops also gives us great buying power for a large range of wheels and tyres.

So…… we have done it with our first retail sales done in oct 2021. Ahead of schedule as we wanted to be up and running for November. We do have many brands to choose from with more in the pipeline, however the market we are in we think of Pirelli is a great fit.

Our aim is to provide better turn around timeframes with our tyres, as relying on outwork in general can lead to disappointment. Local supply will mean same day delivery in most cases and in time we will build our onsite stock.

REBRAND Alert!!! Wellington European (weeu), Big changes at 6 King Street, Wellington

Wellington European… (WEEU) New name, but the same people in the same location, 6 King street.
We’ve operated for 5 years under licence for a 35year old Wellington brand dealing with British and European vehicles.  April 2018 see’s the end of our five year deal to trade under this long standing Wellington brand, however one door closes and another one opens, we are super excited to bring Wellington European to you….

Looking at some exciting specialist tools coming in the new year also. (watch this space).
Parts deals have been done locally and abroad, and we now carry small stock for Jaguar, and Land Rover, looking to build on this over time.  more options however has meant better delivery times etc, win win.
