Now is the time to think about changing your tyres

Although many countries do not yet impose a legal obligation regarding the use of winter tyres, car owners should already start thinking about the seasonal tyre change. After all, the road traffic act requires a ‘set of tyres that is adequate for current weather conditions’ – and winter is not that far away. If you have your tyres stored at a workshop it may be a good idea to arrange for an appointment in good time. The actual is usually quick and smooth, since a large number of automotive workshops use tyre transport equipment by fetra both within the warehouse and for hauling them to the car lift and back. This makes work for the operators much easier and customers get the best possible service.
pace-saving TYRE TROLLEYS

fetra expands its range for the automotive industry with the TYRE TROLLEY product innovation. These clever tyre trolleys can serve both storage and transport purposes. They also serve as smart presentation aids in the showrooms of car dealerships to protect the floor from unsightly discolouration caused by the tyre rubber. Combined with fetra’s tyre trucks, the TYRE TROLLEYS also simplify in-house processes in workshops and car dealerships.
Changing tyres without straining your back

In Germany, musculoskeletal disorders are the main cause of incapacity to work, accounting for average production losses of 10 billion Euros per year. This was revealed by a report of Germany’s Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. As primary cause for this development, the report identified harmful effects of improper physical workloads in daily work operations, for example when lifting and carrying heavy loads. In real life, this primarily affects employees in automotive workshops and dealerships. When tyres need to be swapped with the changing seasons, like now in October, service operators literally need to put their back into it. Markus Fissenewert, owner of the dealership Autohaus Hentze in Gütersloh, has found a solution to take some strain off his employees: tyre trucks from fetra. “Now there is no more heavy lifting of tyres, the employee can simply pick them up horizontally from the floor and cart them away”, he says. Autohaus Pietsch in Melle also uses the trucks and trolleys from fetra to protect their employees’ backs both in the warehouse and in workshop operations.
