HiQ continues to generate publicity, this time using the imminent petrol price hikes as its angle.
Average petrol prices are set to rise to Â£1.20 over the Easter period so the fast-fit network is offering free tyre checks to motorists to combat escalating costs.
In a recent poll, HiQ found that 18% of motorists never check their tyres and 27% only check them once every 6 months.
Geraldine McGovern, marketing manager for the network,Â said: â€œAccording to Tyresafe, of which HiQ are members, under-inflated tyres are costing motorists over Â£2bn in fuel worldwide.
“We would urge motorists to check their tyres fortnightly as a minimum. Look out for obvious damage such as splits or cracks.â€
