Fit Winter Tyres And Store Your Spares For Free With Dainton Self Storage

More and more of the region's motorists are considering fitting winter tyres in response to the icy conditions that the UK has experienced in recent years. However, securely storing the spare set can be prohibitive and many tyre providers charge for storage.

To encourage safer driving this winter, Dainton Self Storage are offering free storage for spare tyres at their St Austell storage branch on Par Moor Road. 

Shaun Duncan, Operations Director at Dainton, explained: "We all rely on our cars to get to and from work and a repeat of the cold weather we have experienced in recent winters will make driving hazardous. Fitting winter tyres reduces stopping distances in cold weather, making driving safer, but we realise some motorists may be discouraged by having to store their spare set. We hope our offer will encourage drivers who have been thinking about using winter tyres to go ahead and make the switch!"

Fitting winter tyres is common in mainland Europe and even a legal requirement in countries such as Germany, Sweden and Finland.  A common misconception is that winter tyres only have a use in snowy or icy conditions. In fact, winter tyres improve stopping distances in temperatures below 7c (44f), which is not an unseasonal temperature in this country. Winter tyres improve braking, cornering and traction performance because they use a different tread rubber compound and tread pattern than standard tyres.

Dainton have set aside a storage container at each of their Self Storage branches and drivers are entitled to store five standard tyres for free until April 2013. There is no catch and to encourage safer driving, the offer is open to all members of the public and not just existing storage customers.

The storage space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and the Company are encouraging drivers to take up the offer by contacting their local Dainton Self Storage branch in Barnstaple, Exeter, Heathfield, Ipplepen, Paignton, Plymouth, St Austell or Torquay. Drivers can get more information by emailing info@dainton.com or visiting dainton.com
