Bella Vista, Australia (PressExposure) October 30, 2009 -- For more than a decade, Franchisee husband-and-wife team Peter and Robyn Price have been going the extra mile for their customers ... giving them the sort of personalised service that makes the tyre buying experience a very pleasant one.
"Our mission statement, which we created for ourselves, reflects the way we do business: 'What's best for the customers is best for us'," JAXQuickfit Newcastle's Peter Price explains.
JAXQuickfit Tyres CEO Jeff Board agrees that one of the Newcastle Tyre store's strengths is its customer service.
"It's a very competitive (tyre) market in Newcastle ... the point of difference offered by Peter and Robyn Price is that their service is, in our view, superb. They make it a very friendly place to be in and that's why they have such a large and happy customer base," Jeff Board says.
JAXQuickfit Tyres Newcastle has been under the direction of the Prices for more than 11 years, and throughout that time has continued to upgrade its fitting and servicing equipment to be the best available.
Both born and bred in Newcastle and very much locals, Peter and Robyn share the load of running a very busy store with 10 staff, headed by Manager Rodney Gentlemen.
"Rodney has been here (in the store) even longer than I have ... he knows the place backwards and has worked hard, originally as a tyre technician and today is across everything we do in the business," Peter Price says.
Wife of 30 years Robyn lends support in the office with administration, accounts and with customer service during busy periods.
