Beverly Tire new location opens

News Jan 24, 2020 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

After five years, Beverly Tire & Auto moved into its new two-storey, 885-square-metre, seven-bay auto service centre at 89 Osler Dr. on Jan. 13.

The construction project caused some controversy for blocking views and towering over neighbours, and bringing a large number of new auto service bays to the area.

Beverly Tire relocated from its original home steps away at University Plaza, growing by four new bays. Plaza owner RioCan will not say what will happen to the empty one-storey structure.

Along with the opening of a Canadian Tire auto-service centre at University Plaza, with 10 new bays, the two businesses bring a total of 17 auto service bays within metres of each other — including 13 new bays.

Neighbour Grant Dolson said Beverly Tire made cosmetic changes that he appreciates and, in the early going, there hasn’t been a noticeable impact.

“We haven’t noticed any significant change since Beverly Tire opened. Noise from the operation and vehicle traffic hasn’t been an issue, thus far,” Dolson said. “However, it is mid-winter and they are operating with their bay doors closed. As well, we are not using our backyard and our windows are all buttoned up.”

He’s optimistic a positive relationship will continue with Beverly Tire, so that any future issues can be resolved.

General manager Shawn Mackenzie said larger capacity and new state-of-the-art equipment will benefit employees and customers.

Among the new features Mackenzie pointed to are: larger customer tire-storage capacity, an alignment machine with wireless imaging, larger capacity hoists able to lift up to 14,000-lb. oversized vans and utility work vehicles, all new wheel-balancing equipment and new tire-mounting equipment, plus a modern, clean, wheelchair-accessible showroom.
