Blackcircles.com Launches UK’s First Pit Stop

Posted on July 10, 2013 by admin

Blackcircles.com has launched the first of it’s new Pit Stop facilities in Milton Keynes, England.  The Pit Stop, designed by Morgan McDonnell, opened it’s doors to customers on Monday 8th July and is the first of an anticipated national roll out across the UK.

The Pit Stop is a joint venture between Blackcircles.com and Tesco, adopting the same site as a decommissioned Tesco car wash facility on a petrol forecourt site. The principle is very similar to that of the car wash, where customers arrive, drop their car off while they do their shopping, to return to their car with new tyres.

We have worked closely with Blackcircles.com to develop a design that is geared towards efficiency both in construction and operation. The prefabricated cabin houses all of the required tyre changing equipment, a staff area and an area where customers can book future appointments. The lightweight curved canopy not only protects those working on the cars from the elements, but also acts as a distinctive beacon, intended to be synonymous with the Blackcircles.com brand.
