All about Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers
How It Started
It all started way back in 1979 at a Scooter Rally in Southend, England when the founder of Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers saw this Lambro Fire Engine.
It started his love of Tuk Tuks that lead us to where we are today.
The passion for Tuk Tuks is still there today and we are passing that passion on to our customers.
We strongly believe that no other company has such a long term passion for Tuk Tuks and it is very clear the owners are in the business because they love what they do.
Why Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers Started?
When moving to the Philippines the owners got a Tuk Tuk and quickly realised that the aftersales and customer service was very lacking compared to what he was used to in Europe.
The owners strongly believe that customer service and after-sales should be the same in the Philippines as it is in other countries.
He come to the conclusion the best way to put this right was to set up his own company and provide the type of service that people get in Europe, in the hope that the rest would follow and provide the level of service people should get.
Fighting for Tuk Tuk Owners Rights
The founder of Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers become well known for his fight for the rights of Tuk Tuk Owners in the Philippines to be able to drive on National Highway.
Here he can be seen in a meeting with the former chief of LTO. There is no doubt that he has done more than anyone else, spending over three years studying the laws.
He realised that Tuk Tuks were incorrectly being regarded as tricycles in the Philippines and set out to correct this.
Still today he is happy to help anyone that has problems.
When we first thought about becoming a dealer we had offers from all three of the leading brands in Tuk Tuks. So why did we choose TVS?
The reason was simple we owned another brand and we tested two others and out of the three TVS impressed us the most.
The build quality and the performance for us seemed far above the other brands.
The founder also considers himself to be an honest man and because of this, he could not sell anything that he did not consider to be the best in type.
About Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers in Full
Our passion for Tuk Tuks started over 40 years ago when we saw a Lambro three-wheeler fire engine at a scooter rally in Southend, England.
When the Tuk Tuk arrived in the Philippines we quickly become known as one of the leading authorises on three-wheelers in the country. We spent a lot of time researching laws that were affecting the three-wheeler community and helping them fight for their rights. Firstly on a website we were running which was really designed for British ex-pats. Because we had so much to write about the Tuk Tuk we started another website dedicated to the Tuk Tuk, that site being Tuk Tuk PH. We also set up a Facebook Page and a YouTube Channel under the same name.
The three major manufactures of Indian built 3 wheelers started to take notice because we had become a major influence in the country, with the result all three of them offering us a chance to become a dealer.
At first, we were not really interested but we decided we could do more to help the owners of Tuk Tuks with the legal side if we were dealers, we also believed the buyers were not getting the level of customer service that they would get in other countries, so we become a dealer for TVS so we could address the above.
Why we choose TVS was firstly we liked the attitude of the company and secondly after testing all three of the main players in the market we believe the TVS King to be the best on the market.
We strongly believe in giving the standard of service and aftercare car buyers in Europe get. We want to pass our passion and knowledge of the Tuk Tuk on to our customers.
Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers opened their first branch at the start of the pandemic and despite opening at such a difficult time has gone on to be a success.
Just over a year later they opened a second branch in Antipolo. Even in the first week, saw customers flocking to it relieved that at last they could get good customer service. Many TVS owners in Antipolo had been begging Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers to open in their city.
Customers have shortened the name of Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers and now refer to it as just “Tuk Tuk”
TVS Motorcycles started to notice the service Tuk Tuk was giving to three-wheeler owners and asked if Tuk Tuk could do the same for them, so Tuk Tuk now stacks TVS motorcycle parts for the TVS Apache, TVS Neo, TVS Dazz, TVS XL100, TVS Max, TVS RockZ and the TVS Tormax.
We also have mechanics that are highly skilled in Motorcycle and three-wheeler repairs.
