Hankook Tyre UK partners with DriverReviews: Europe’s largest verified tire reviews platform
Hankook Tire drives consumer confidence and trust in its brand with the introduction of customer reviews onto its website. The company has teamed up with Europe’s largest verified consumer review platform for tires – DriverReviews, and is the first tire maker in the UK to publish genuine, verified reviews from consumers online, providing an independent voice to support customer decision making.
Daventry, UK, August 27, 2021 – Global leading tire company Hankook Tire is incorporating genuine, verified product reviews onto its UK website to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. The tire maker has partnered with DriverReviews, a syndication platform which holds the largest verified reviews database of current tire models in the UK and wider Europe. All tire reviews are authenticated, providing a trusted source for tire buyers to aid consumer decision making. Hankook Tire currently has over 5,000 product reviews on its website.
Syndicating more than 220,000 tire reviews from genuine, verified customers who’ve driven over 100 million miles, DriverReviews aims to become the trusted name that customers look for when they are in the market to buy new tires.
Zoe Baldwin, Marketing & Communications Manager of Hankook Tyre UK, states: “As reviews have become a very important force in online consumer decision making, it seemed a natural progression to provide genuine reviews of our products on our website. This will enable consumers to make an informed choice when selecting their tire brand. We have partnered with DriverReviews to ensure consumers are confident in their choice of Hankook tires before purchasing. As the reviews are requested at three intervals of ownership: after 3 months, 12 months, and 18-24 months, consumers are able to provide the most accurate, honest opinions across the product’s lifecycle.”
Adam Butcher, Head of Product at DriverReviews, comments, “We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Hankook - one of the fastest-growing and leading premium tire makers in the world. Thousands of customers have already used DriverReviews to review and voice their opinion on Hankook’s wide range of high-quality and high-performance products, and it is exciting that our partnership will enable Hankook to syndicate these reviews into their marketing communications. It’s an important step for DriverReviews to collaborate with partners such as Hankook to ensure that more customers are given the opportunity to read genuine authentic tire reviews to guide their future purchase and help them make the right choice in a sometimes-complicated customer experience.”
DriverReviews platform is currently integrated into the UK website, however Hankook is planning to rollout across more countries in 2022.
