In their latest edition, Auto Express, the UK’s leading and largest weekly car magazine – both online and in print – has named Blackcircles.com as the Best Online Tyre Retailer for 2020/2021.
Each year Auto Express complete impartial and in-depth annual tyre tests – which aim to help consumers choose the best tyre for their needs, be it summer, winter or all season.
In a similar vein, Auto Express also put the UK’s leading tyre retailers to the test on a regular basis – to discover which retailer offers consumers the best value, tyre choice and overall customer experience.
Since our first win in 2014, Blackcircles.com has now been awarded the top spot in this rigorous test for the 7th time – something which we are delighted to have achieved, given the ever-increasing competitiveness of the market.
To consistently come out on top, is a tremendous reward for everyone at the company – who all work together tirelessly, to keep pushing the envelope and improving the tyre buying process even further.
Central to our continued drive to make sure we are offering the best online experience is our customers. We are always looking to make the purchasing of new tyres quick, simple and hassle-free.
How the Testing Worked
Auto Express focuses on the key aspects of buying a tyre online. They rate the chosen retailers on “ease of use, the ability to filter search results and whether stock availability was clearly listed”.
Three inherently important factors for motorists buying new tyres online.
To ensure the ranking is consistent, the testers search for the same tyres on each site – on this occasion they were looking for the tyres which have previously come out top in their recent tyre tests – including larger SUV sizes.
For those retailers which stock all the tyres, bonus points were awarded. With the final deciding factor being the price.
