It's not every day that the winners of the Checkatrade Trophy and West Bromwich Albion’s Hal Robson-Kanu pop onto to the forecourt for a quick tyre change.
But the team at ETB Leamington are keeping all manner of footballers on the right road to success, not to mention their many loyal customers, with some crowd pleasing offers and premier levels of service.
Depot manager Neil Webb and his team always keep their eyes on the ball, keeping footballers, families and friends content as soon as they step foot into the Highdown Road garage reception.
Neil said: “We've actually started seeing three generations coming to us for their tyres, repairs and MOTs. Our customers have become a part of the ETB family and we know each one individually.
“The influx of footballers has caused a bit of banter amongst the team. A lot of the Coventry City players have been in to see us, so it was nice to see them on TV lifting a piece of silverware at Wembley recently.”
Depot Manager Neil is also a key part of the ETB family, having been at the Leamington branch for over 20 years - and 30 years in the industry in total.
"I think I know every single bump in the road from my house to the garage now!
"I thoroughly love working here and I’ve seen a lot change. The birth of the internet has changed the way people buy tyres, and we actually sell more tyres online than anywhere else in the ETB group.
"Even with this change to the motor trade, we’re committed to offering the best pricing in the area. We were surprised when a straight talking guy told us that a garage near us wanted to charge £200 more than us for a single tyre, the guy had to ring three times to ensure he’d heard it right!"
And the tyres that customers purchase online are fitted to plenty of prestigious marques, with the depot often looking more like a supercar showroom than a garage.
Supercars from across the ages roll onto the ramps, including a Maserati Grand Turismo, a 1979 Lotus John Player Special and a Sunbeam Alpine.
