Gemseal – a revenue opportunity jumping out of your vehicle health checks
For many years there has been a trend moving away from heavy spare tyres and wheels being provided with new vehicles. Space saver wheels arrived on the scene over 10 years ago but the trend has been to move towards compressors and sealants to save more space, weight and emissions. Today over 55% of new vehicles come with tyre sealant. The problem with tyre sealants is that they eventually expire and when vehicles are sold second hand often the compressor or the sealant is removed. We recommend changing your tyre inspection procedures to include a check of the spare wheel. Is there sufficient air and tread in the spare wheel, if there is a sealant – simply check for the expiry date and should the sealant have expired – simply offer the customer our Gemseal solution. The vehicle owner can then scan the QR code to see how to watch our installation video in case of a flat tyre.
Gemseal is sourced from original equipment sources. It is the very same sealant found in many of the most popular vehicles found on our roads today such as on the list below.
