JEREMY BISHOP HAULAGE LTD.
Jeremy Bishop Haulage Ltd is a long established, Devon-based haulage and inert waste recycling specialist running a modern fleet of 20 six and eight-wheeled rigid tippers. “We chose Bandvulc Tyres because we felt their waste and tipper range of product returned good mileage and has integral damage resistance built into the the tyres” says owner Jeremy Bishop. “We’ve used them for many years and have always appreciated the way the company is developing new products and taking retread tyre technology forward. We do trial other makes – we’ve recently fitted two sets of different Bandvulcs head to head with two different budget new brands” he continues. “We feel we know what the outcome will be but it’s always good to compare current patterns and competition.”
Bishop isn’t convinced by those who claim retreads are less fuel efficient than new tyres. “As always, the driver’s driving style has a dramatic effect on these figures, but it’s positive to note from trials we have run previously and this current test that we’ve seen little or no difference between MPG returns, and in some cases retreads have had a positive impact.”
The company also uses Bandvulc Plus+ Tyre Support Unit for its roadside breakdowns. “It’s worth noting that service is as important to us as product and it’s essential our suppliers respond quickly, efficiently and effectively on any downtime” he adds. “Bandvulc do so”
