Farrall’s Group is moving its entire fleet of 65 trucks and 100 trailers onto a Michelin tyre policy. The decision follows a trial organised by local Michelin advocate dealer Quinton Tyres, which demonstrated the sustainability advantages of the Michelin product.
The company used to run a mix of competitor brands but will now switch to Michelin as part of its strategy to ensure its drivers always have the “best tools to do the job”.
Matthew Farrall, Managing Director at Farrall’s Group, says: “Quinton Tyres put the Michelin solution forward when we went to market for a new tyre partner and we were really intrigued to see the difference a professionally managed Michelin policy could make. The quality of service we have seen so far from Quinton Tyres has been excellent – the level of detail and technology they used to complete a full audit inspection of the fleet was very impressive.
“We compared the product against data for rival brands, but it was the Michelin tyres which stood out in terms of fuel efficiency, pence per mile and longevity, particularly when we factored in regrooving and retreading.
“The move to Michelin means we are now saving fuel and improving the sustainability of our operation. We take a lot of pride in our fleet and are focused on making sure the team has the best tools to do the job. It all supports the goal of delivering a reliable and consistent service to our customers.”
