Tire Storage Solutions knows that as the North American winter sets in, customers are beginning to worry about the necessity and pricing of tire storage. How much does it cost to store your tires, and what is the right way to go about it? What are the benefits of storing your tires professionally versus just keeping your summer and winter tire sets at home for easy personal installation? There are vital benefits to professional tire storage and seasonal storage systems, and it all begins with the price.
Countless ads for winter tires bombard you as winter approaches, and you may be asking yourself what you should be doing after seeing your twelfth ad for seasonal tires. The affordability of winter tires is the first question on everyone’s minds, but swapping out winter tires means finding a storage facility for your summer ones. Some guidelines exist to help you make a better-informed decision, influenced by industry standards and the necessity of winter tires.
The Benefits of Seasonal Tires
We’ve gathered data based on averages within the automotive industry—the costs of winter tires and the average storage costs all factor into seasonal tire pricing. Winter tires, on average, cost between $80 and $200 per tire, based on the brand, features, and reliability. Per set of 4 tires, the average is between $360 and $800—which can seem like a sizable investment for any buyer. Customers want to know that their investment is protected, worthwhile, and necessary.
You shouldn’t be buying an entirely new set of winter tires every year, and you don’t have to. Management tire storage systems exist to keep your winter tires safe in a controlled environment until the months come back around when you need them. After knowing the price of your winter tires, you can view them as an important seasonal investment that will keep you and your family safe as well as keep your family on the road.
The expensive upfront initial cost of winter tires is off-putting for some, especially if you need a new set of rims to match. Before winter rolls around, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for seasonal tire promotions and discounts, as well as qualified insurance rebates. While winter tire sets might be pricey, they are more than worth it due to their added safety. Maintenance and installation are also a factor, especially if you’re not confident in installing the tires yourself. With the cost of winter tires, installation, mounting, and upkeep, it’s not feasible to buy winter tires every year and worry about having to get them reinstalled. That’s where seasonal tire storage comes in.
Why You Should Invest In Seasonal Tire Storage
The national average for seasonal tire storage is between $40 and $100, depending on the tires, storage system, and other needs and factors. If you live in a small space such as an apartment or condo, you don’t have the time or space to worry about storage. Seasonal tire storage gives you peace of mind by knowing that your tires remain in a controlled environment right up until the time you need them, and with Tire Storage Solutions, you get the added benefits of our integrated systems that update you on tire status and communicate directly with your dealership so that you can have your tires picked up and installed all in one appointment.
