Variety of options
So how do the repair kits work? Slime offers a variety of different flat tyre repair kit options, but the core of each kit is the same: tyre repair sealant is installed into your tyre, the inflator pushes air into the wheel, quickly re-inflating it and plugging the puncture.
These are products with a broad appeal to many of your customers, including:
- Frequent drivers – especially those who don’t like travelling at night, in the rain, or in the dark.
- New drivers, or those who don’t know how to change a flat tyre.
- Motorists who are physically unable to change a flat tyre.
- Current sealant purchasers whose existing product is old or out of date.
Slime also offers a sealant refill pack giving plenty of future opportunities for return visits and replacement sales, as well as the opportunity to engage the motorist in further breakdown and emergency product conversations.
The kits are designed to be easy to use, you simply attach the repair sealant bottle to the tyre and an external air source. The pressure moves the air through the bottle pushing the sealant into the tyre.
Available as a full kit (with tyre inflator included) or as a sealant refill pack.
