    Default tyres.co.za

    Hi all

    Has anyone managed to get tyres through tyres.coza in the last 6 weeks?

    I bought a set of 4 tyres from tyres.co.za at the end of March. Today, finally, I got them. There was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing with the founder and CEO, Thomas Rundle and I was getting frustrated.

    I’m posting this because it shouldn’t be only negative experiences that are publicised on platforms such as this.

    Throughout the last 6 weeks, with lockdowns in SA and elsewhere, containers backed up in the ports, factories closed or operating at limited capacity Thomas Rundle never made excuses, instead he spent the time busting a gut trying to get the tyres to me.

    What really impressed me though, and secured my loyalty was that yesterday, because I’d waited so long, he refunded the cost of 1 tyre. Which means that he made a loss on this sale. I think that this level of customer service is the difference between businesses that will survive the Covid-19 recession and those that won’t.

    Much respect Thomas!

    Take all your evidence and lay a case of fraud at your local police department.

    I see a comment from 2017 referring to them as Barden Tyres..So he has been doing the rounds for a while
    Maybe someone should give SARS a tipoff and see what comes of that

    *Edited upon request*

    Any registered South African company’s directors’ name(s) is available on the CIPC website if anyone wants to find out before doing business with someone.

    A level of due diligence is always a good idea, especially when it comes to upfront payments for goods or services.
