Why should you buy your side steps from Direct 4x4? What makes them different to others on the market?
Well here is a little info on our sourcing methods, quality control and supply to you, the customer.
Sourcing the best
We have a team that works with us to help us find products that will work for the UK market and abroad that not only look great but will be functional and fulfill a need.
Our side steps have done just this, giving us a range that suit most tastes and budgets while not compromising on quality regardless of which ones you choose.
The styles we stock are pretty much unique to us, whether you want a step to stand out or blend in with your vehicle we will have one that will work for you.
The team of specialists we employ are trained to spot any imperfections or problems with the side steps at the time of production.
Our managing director regularly visits the factories to inspect the manufacturing process and the quality of the items we would be supplied with.
This ensures we get the best quality. If an item is checked and is found to have imperfections we will not accept it.
A lower grade stainless steel has been used than is acceptable. The whole batch could be rejected rather than taking them for a cheaper price as we only want the best.
Most of our steps have a mandrel bent stainless steel edging on the side, this has the potential during the manufacturing process to come out looking not quite as it should. Our team will flag this up to us and we would want them re-made to look as they should.
Supply to you
When we think about supplying items to customers mainly in the UK we have to think about whether the materials used can withstand the weather and the salt from our roads.
The steps are designed with this in mind right down to the brackets. The brackets are dual powder coated to ensure that they are strong and will last despite the road conditions.
Customers often come back to us time and again with every new car that they buy to have new side steps fitted on. As this is the case we make sure that the steps we supply are of the best quality to keep those customers happy so they can feel confident about returning to purchase from us again if needed.
