Bulmans Bulk & Haulage has announced it is specifying Michelin tyres as original equipment on all its new trucks, and as replacements across its truck and trailer fleet, after reaping the benefits offered by Michelin’s accidental tyre damage guarantee.
According to the Penrith-based bulk tipping specialist, tyre-related downtime has reduced and longevity increased – boosting the sustainability of its operations. In addition, in the event a tyre suffers accidental damage before it is 50 per cent worn, the company receives a credit from Michelin for the unused portion of the tyre’s life.
The haulage firm operates approximately 60 DAF tractor units and 70 trailers, fitting 315/80 R 22.5 X Multi Z and D tyres on its steer and drive axles respectively, and 235/75 R 17.5 X Multi T2 fitments on the mid-lift. All Fruehauf trailers benefit from a 385/65 R22.5 X Multi T replacement tyre policy – offering versatility and longevity in all seasons.
Michelin’s accidental tyre damage guarantee covers the majority of its regional and on/off-road ranges, and is free of charge to register for.
Bulmans Bulk & Haulage was founded in 1982, initially with a single vehicle trading from a bedroom at a Penrith truck stop. Today, the company transports more than 6,000 tonnes of feed, cereals and aggregates every day – across the UK.
