In December of 1921, Valley Tire LTD. opened as a vulcanizing shop in Oakdene Vale (commonly referred to as "the foot of Gallows Hill" or "Misquito Hollow"). Over half a century later, we remain one of the oldest, if not the oldest, independent tire dealers in Canada.
Valley Tire LTD. is owned by Harold Quigley, who purchased the business back in July of 1974. At the time, it was common practice for tires to be "broken down" in the showroom. Soon after acquiring Valley Tire LTD., renovations and expansions began starting in 1975.
The years following saw continued changes and growth. In 1986, a heavy-duty truck bay and tire warehouse saw completion. In 1998, a major warehouse expansion concluded.
Today, there are three Valley Tire locations to best serve you.
Harold attributes his success with Valley Tire LTD. to three things:
The tire industry has gone through tremendous changes since 1965. Harold has been around to see many of them, and no matter how tires evolve or shopping habits change, it always comes back to product quality, product knowledge and customer service. It is essential for any dealer to have excellent product knowledge not only in order to sell that product to the customer but to also ensure that the customer will return.
Harold and his sons, Stephen and Derek, are recognized BFGoodrich T/A masters. In addition, all employees are required to attend technical seminars to stay on top of industry changes in an an ever-changing market.
We always treat our customers with the utmost importance. We understand you want "good value" for your hard earned money, and we provide that value by being knowledgeable about our products and services to meet your exact needs. Our staff listens to what you want out of a tire or service, and we provide it. That's why we have regular customers who have been with us since 1974.
It's our belief that "word of mouth" advertising is the best type of advertisement a business can get. We are grateful to have a solid reputation today thanks to our loyal customers spreading the word about us.
Thank you for the many great years behind us, and we look forward to serving you in the years to come.
