Michelin Guarantee Saves BJ Clarke From Significant Tyre Bill


BJ Clarke is reaping the benefits of Michelin’s accidental tyre damage guarantee following a recent incident which wiped out two of its trailer tyres

BJ Clarke Runs Exclusively on Michelin Tyres 

The Wrexham-based haulage firm, that operates a fleet of 21 Scania trucks and a mix of more than 60 trailers, runs exclusively on Michelin tyres. Having found the product to last significantly longer and perform better than any other fitment on the market. It helps reducing downtime and helping to boost the sustainability of its operation.

Michelin’s accidental tyre damage guarantee protects the majority of its regional and on/off-road ranges, reinforcing the benefits of operating a premium Michelin policy. It covers accidental damage suffered before a fitment is 50 per cent worn. If the tyres are less than 10 per cent worn, a full refund is issued and if the tyre is 50-90 per cent worn, a 75 per cent refund is given back.

BJ Clarke received a credit note via its local Michelin Service Pro dealer Tructyre, in Deeside, to help replace the Michelin X Multi T 385/65 R22.5 fitments that were damaged on the trailer. BJ Clarke gets great support from Michelin’s team and in their experience, the product can’t be beaten in terms of total cost of ownership.

Family-run BJ Clarke was established in 1969 and specialises in the transportation and delivery of raw materials, aggregates, steel, timber, recycled waste and hazardous goods throughout the UK. The business runs an extensive fleet of bulk tippers, aggregate tippers, flat bed trailers, curtain-sided trailers and rigid vehicles from its headquarters in Wrexham.
