Newsome's Tyres rolling in sales success from service

NEWSOME'S Tyres are on a roll after they snatched up the Cooper Tires award for Highest Unit Sales in Queensland for a second year in a row.

Julie Newsome, owner of Newsome's Tyres, said they had been in Rockhampton for three decades and believed the team's customer service is what had kept the business alive.

"We've been open for 30 years and I think our customer service plays a huge part of that," Julie said.

"Our business is like a family, my son works here and we have staff who have been with us for over 15 years."

Julie said it was not only their service skills which landed them the Cooper Tires award but the variety of good products they had.

"We've been selling Cooper's tyres for 29 years now…they are really good to sell," she said.

"Plus the dealer who does Cooper tyres is great, they really back their warranty."

She said business had been great, especially when it came to four-wheel driving.

"Because we do live in Central Queensland a lot of our customers are four-wheel drive customers," Julie said.

"We have our young guys who go up to Five Rocks and travel up to the Cape."

Julie said the award was great for the business and Rockhampton.
