Mobile tyre fitting equipment refers to garage equipment to enable the installation, replacement, and maintenance of vehicle tyres at a location outside of traditional garages or tyre fast-fit repair shops.

This equipment is usually installed into a mobile tyre fitting van, which allows mobile tyre fitting services to conveniently service vehicles at the customer's preferred location, such as their home, workplace, or roadside.

It typically includes items like tyre changers, wheel balancers, air compressors, and other essential tools that enable efficient and accurate tyre fitting without the need for a fixed physical workshop.

Mobile tyre fitting equipment plays a crucial role in providing on-the-go tyre services, ensuring convenience and minimising downtime for vehicle owners.

Mobile garage equipment in a van enables automotive repair and maintenance services to be brought directly to customers' locations. The van is equipped with a range of mobile garage equipment and tools, including items like a mobile tyre changer, 12v wheel balancer and a mobile air compressor, as well as potentially diagnostic equipment, power tools, and storage for various automotive parts and tyres.

This compact yet comprehensive setup allows technicians to efficiently perform tasks such as oil changes, brake repairs, tyre replacements, diagnostics, and minor mechanical work without the need for a fixed physical workshop.

When a customer requests a tyre replacement, the mobile garage van equipped with the necessary replacement tyres, tools and equipment is dispatched to the customer's location. The onboard mobile air compressor can be used to power pneumatic tools such as impact wrenches, and air inflation.

The van's layout and storage organisation is crucial to ensure that essential parts such as wheel weights, valves and tools are readily available for efficient tyre service delivery.

Overall, mobile garage equipment in a van revolutionises automotive servicing by offering convenience and flexibility, as technicians bring the workshop to the customer rather than vice versa. This approach saves customers time and effort, while also enabling mechanics to provide essential maintenance and repairs in a wide range of settings.

As well as the van itself, the tyre fitting equipment and tools need to be chosen with care, to ensure crucially that they can operate in a mobile setting and from a 12v power source, as well as ensuring that they will fit in the chosen mobile tyre fitting van of course. Each tyre fitting van may be unique, but key pieces of equipment include:

  • Power Supply: To operate all the equipment, a reliable power supply is required, which can be achieved through a 12v DC to 230v AC inverter, relay and sockets.Β  Alternatively, a separate battery or generator may be used to power the equipment.
  • Hydraulic Jacks and Stands: to lift the vehicle from the floor, and to secure it safely whilst being worked on is an essential set of equipment, as you may be working in unusual and unexpected environments, you need to be prepared to work on the vehicle in a range of circumstances.
  • Mobile Tyre Changer: A mobile tyre fitting van requires a portable tyre changer to remove and install tyres onto rims swiftly, this should include a bead breaker to easily begin the tyre removal, but the size of the tyre changer must be taken into consideration as it will be operating in a limited space. Tyre changers with tilt back and large 3-point swing arms may not fit, depending on the vehicle chosen to operate your business from.
  • Mobile Wheel Balancer: Additionally, a wheel balancer is essential to ensure even weight distribution and optimal tire performance. The best wheel balancers for mobile tyre-changing vans tend to be those that are compact, and without a hood to take the minimum of room for this essential task.
  • Mobile Air Compressor: An air compressor is crucial for powering pneumatic tools like impact wrenches, which are used to quickly remove and tighten wheel nuts. It also assists in inflating tyres to the proper pressure. The compressor's portability allows technicians to operate effectively without relying on fixed infrastructure. Some air compressors will operate from the power source used for the tyre changer and wheel balancer, but to reduce the load on these you may consider a petrol-driven air compressor which enables the compressor to be completely mobile and operate independently of the other equipment.
  • Basic Hand Tools: A comprehensive collection of hand tools, including wrenches, sockets, pliers, and screwdrivers, is vital for handling various aspects of tyre fitting, from removing wheel covers to adjusting tyre pressure sensors, as well as the removal of wheel weights.
  • Storage Solutions: Efficient storage within the van is essential for keeping all tools and equipment organised, safe whilst driving, and easily accessible when working. Cabinets, drawers, and racks help maintain a tidy workspace and ensure that technicians can find what they need quickly.
  • Diagnostic Equipment: Additionally equipping the van with diagnostic tools allows technicians to address issues beyond simply tyre fitting, such as identifying sensor errors or diagnosing electronic system problems. This enhances the range of services offered to customers.
  • Safety Equipment: Safety must be a priority, so the van should be equipped with appropriate safety gear, including personal protective equipment (PPE), emergency warning devices, and fire extinguishers.

By kitting out your mobile van with a range of good-quality mobile garage equipment, a Mobile Tyre Fitting Van can deliver convenient and professional tyre services at customers' locations, enhancing their experience while maintaining high standards of quality and safety.

A Mobile Tyre Fitting Business has the potential to be profitable, provided that it is well-managed and strategically operated. The profitability of such a business depends on several factors, including market demand, competition, pricing strategies, operational efficiency, and customer service.

The key advantages of a Mobile Tyre Business are both its low overheads and its ability to offer convenience to customers.

As the business does not necessarily need a fixed location, traditional garage costs such as premises, utility bills and additional staff costs are not required keeping the costs very low, and hence profits potentially higher than a standard garage.

The customer convenience factor can attract customers who prefer not to visit a traditional garage or tyre fitting business, especially for routine tyre maintenance or emergencies. By providing on-the-spot tyre services at customers' preferred locations, such as their homes, workplaces, or roadside, the business can tap into a niche market that values time-saving and personalised service.

However, like any business, success is not guaranteed, and challenges must be considered. It's crucial to conduct thorough market research to understand the local demand, competitive landscape, and pricing expectations. As with any business, effective local marketing and outreach efforts are essential to establish a customer base. Operational efficiency is also vital; managing scheduling, logistics, and maintaining a well-equipped van can impact overall profitability. Ensuring competitive pricing while factoring in costs, such as equipment maintenance, fuel, and labour, is essential to strike a balance between attracting customers and maintaining healthy profit margins.

A Mobile Tyre Business can be profitable when executed thoughtfully. By catering to customer convenience, offering quality service, managing costs, and staying attuned to market trends, entrepreneurs in this field have the potential to build a successful and sustainable venture.
