Michelin the right choice for Hart’s Haulage
Cornwall-based Hart’s Haulage has switched to a 100 per cent Michelin policy, following a recent trial with a set of X MultiWay 3D XDE drive and XZE all-position tyres that revealed the premium tyres deliver ‘cost-efficiency, reliability and longevity’. The family run company had previously conducted a mixed tyre policy.
Specialising in hauling aggregates, tarmac, concrete, and providing a muck away service, Hart’s Haulage now fits Michelin tyres across its entire fleet, which consists of a mix of 26 DAF, Scania and Volvo tractor units and tipper-bodied rigid trucks, plus tipper trailers and four concrete mixers.
In addition to regular visits from Account Manager John Pethick, Michelin's technical team is also helping the company get the most from its tyres. Weighing exercises carried out by Technical Manager Jeremy Wheeler have provided bespoke tyre pressure suggestions for vehicles throughout the company’s diverse fleet, ensuring optimal longevity, safety and durability for its Michelin fitments – no matter the application.
“Tyre-related downtime was an issue we wanted to address,” explained Hart’s Haulage Director and founder Neil Hart. “So, we looked at the alternatives, and after we witnessed the improved reliability and extra mileage our test Michelin tyre set offered, we made the switch, and haven’t looked back since.
“We’re very happy with the service Michelin provides. The Michelin team took the time to get to know our specific business needs, and suggest the appropriate tyres for the job. Now, we simply wouldn’t buy any other brand.”
ATS Euromaster supplies Michelin X MultiWay 3D tyres to Hart’s Haulage – this is the manufacturer’s latest generation regional tyre range, which offers a strong blend of fuel efficiency and mileage performance. The range also offers an improved resistance to accidental shoulder damage – ideal for the on-road/off-road nature of Hart’s Haulage’s work.
