Dave Brydon Tyres Ltd, an independent garage in the Scottish Borders has joined the HiQ network, rebranding as HiQ Galashiels. The centre has been established for more than 30 years – HiQ says the centre will receive significant investment in re-branding, but will also maintain its community friendly focus and experienced staff. It will offer a complete vehicle maintenance and repair service. Franchisee Graeme McGauchrane said that joining the HiQ fast fit network was an exciting business investment, as it brought the support and experience of a national brand to the centre: “Becoming part of a national franchise is beneficial us because it adds credibility to the services we already offer.
