Beaurepaires Tyre Service Centre was founded in Melbourne way back in 1922 and has since grown into one of Australia’s most prominent service centre companies. The
company began manufacturing tyres under its subsidiary, the Olympic Tyre Company, in 1933, which expanded within a decade into the production of a wider range of rubber products such as flooring, machine belts and footwear soles. Beaurepaires continued to grow and modernise throughout the 20th century, with 170 branches throughout Australia by 1973, before the company amalgamated with Dunlop Group in 1980. A second major acquisition occurred in 2006 when Goodyear took full ownership of South Pacific Tyres group, of which Beaurepaires was the flagship retailer, and the company ceased their manufacturing operations two years later in favour of increasing their retail and vehicle service offerings.
Keeping in mind their focus on retail and servicing along with exceptional customer care, Beaurepaires today offers a huge range of tyres for cars, trucks, agricultural vehicles and everything in between. They also sell wheels and batteries along with services such as wheel alignment, balancing and tyre maintenance.
What our survey respondents say about Beaurepaires
Canstar Blue’s most recent car tyre retailer survey sought the opinions of more than 1,200 drivers around Australia. Some of the comments from customers who purchased tyres from Beaurepaires were as follows:
|Great to deal with on all levels.||Branch locations are sometimes inconvenient.|
|They have a great range to choose from and the staff are friendly and helpful.||Sometimes changes aren’t done on the same day.|
|Clean store, great staff, and comparable prices.||They didn’t have the tyres in a deal they were promoting.|
|No fuss; booked in for tyres, went shopping and came back to pick up car.||Prices seem high, but having said that, no worse than anyone else.|
|They ran their business well. Their front desk staffs were very helpful and attentive. They made the process easy.||They can take a long time to have your car ready despite the fact you make an appointment. Good tyres are still expensive.|
