Flat tire? No worries

In most countries, when your car or motorcycle or bicycle has a flat tire, where do you go? To the nearest workshop available in your area? But how close is it?
How much money do you spend? Probably some Dollars, and that is not cheap, isn’t it?

BUT in Indonesia, if you have a flat tire, no worries. All you need to do is look around your area and find these people.

Say hello to tire repairman, or what Indonesian called ‘tukang tambal ban’. They are always ready to help you.

They are literally everywhere so it’s not hard to find them. Really, the amount of these people is the same with the amount of McD or KFC in American countries.
Their skills are as good as those working in a big workshop. They can pump up your tire or patch your flat tire in a matter of minutes. Their fast services can be compared to the racing team.

If that is still not good enough, their services are so cheap. You only need to pay for 1 or 2 US Dollar (IDR 10.000 – 20.000) for 1 flat tire. What a bargain, isn’t it?
You can also ask to check all of your tires for wind pressure, and all you need to do is pay them 0,2 or 0,5 US Dollar (IDR 2.000 – 5.000).
