Mobile Tyres – Jason Stagg

Jason Stagg is going into second winter as a new business owner and he has every reason to be optimistic. Over the last year and a half since opening Mobile Tyres, the business has been steadily growing and gaining a solid reputation around Wanaka. With 24 years of experience in the tyre business, it’s no surprise that Jason has gained recognition as being an honest operator who knows his stuff!

As the name suggests, Jason’s workplace is his brightly sign-written Mobile Tyres van. It’s all set up to deliver and fit tyres, wheels, snowchains and road-side assistance in the Wanaka area. Yep, Jason will come to you, where ever you are!

Although Jason went into his venture knowing a lot about running a tyre business, he was realistic about his ability to set up accounting systems from scratch and called on some expert help early on.  A friend recommended the team at Findlay and Co, so we set him up, and familiarised him with a Xero accounting system.

Here’s what Jason has to say about working with Findlay and Co:

“Xero’s been really easy. Lynley set us up and we can do the basics like bank reconciliations, and she takes care of GST returns. I like that you can see at a glance what you’re spending and what you’re earning. It’s like a kids’ toy, it’s designed for me!

“I can ring up Lynley anytime when I have a problem and she’ll tell me how to do it over the phone. She always helps. Wayne has helped give us direction for future growth, he told us we’re doing the right thing. They’ve been bloody good! I’d like to keep growing and maybe employ someone so I can get out of the van and work more in the office.”

Jason has big plans and a bright future, and we plan to be right behind him on his mobile journey!
