Hunter Engineering and U.S. AutoForce announce a new integrated tire inspection + quoting solution to their mutual auto dealer customers.
With the new partnership, service advisors can easily click to quote the tire replacement opportunities identified by Hunter’s Quick Tread Edge unmanned inspection system, providing superior customer service and increasing tire and alignment sales.
Hunter will preview this new integration in booth #43017 at SEMA in Las Vegas, Nov. 2-5.
“Auto dealers continue to grow their share of the near-$36 billion tire replacement market, making speed and convenience key to selling more tires,” said Alan Hagerty, Hunter product manager. “Hundreds of tires roll through the typical dealership every day. We know approximately 15 perercent need immediate replacement, or replacement soon. With Hunter and U.S. AutoForce, auto dealers can quickly pinpoint those tire needs and easily present replacement options,” he said.
U.S. AutoForce’s Tire Quote solution, available online through its website, allows users to search for and order tires by size, make of vehicle and VIN. Hunter’s Quick Tread Edge uses lasers to automatically scan each tire edge to edge and provide 3-D models to illustrate the complete extent of tread wear.
