Michelin reports low accidental damage claims


Michelin Accidental Damage Claim Rate)

Two years after launching its accidental tyre damage guarantee for its bus, coach and truck tyre ranges, Michelin has reported just 1,391 eligible claims for damage from nearly 250,000 tyres sold in Ireland and the UK – a claim rate of just 0.59 per cent, which it says highlights its product quality.

Under the scheme – believed to be unique amongst bus, coach and truck tyre manufacturers in Irish and UK markets – operators are refunded for any accidental damage suffered before a tyre is 50 per cent worn, with the refund calculated against the remaining tread depth of the tyre.

The Michelin X Multi guarantee for regional tread patterns covers 51 bus, coach and truck tyre sizes, including all X Multi and X MultiWay regional tyres, in all available sizes. An X Works and X Works HD guarantee is also available for truck tyres used in on/off-road applications, covering 24 sizes, plus three sizes of Michelin Remix retread tyres.
