Fegan Transport opts for Continental tyres

  • 25 July 2012
  • By Christopher Walton

County Down haulier Fegan Transport is to run its fleet on Continental tyres after a trial on one of its bulk trailers.

The Northern Irish firm, which runs a fleet of 25 vehicles and 50 trailers, will now begin the process of changing the whole fleet from the incumbent supplier to Continental.

Martin Fegan, owner of Fegan Transport, says that given the routes the haulier takes between Northern Ireland and the Republic, the vehicles do not always run on motorways, meaning that tyre degradation is a key concern.

“We’d used Continental tyres before, and then found that some of the Chinese tyres coming onto the market were cheaper, but it took us two years to realise that this wasn’t actually the best way to go. In some cases we’d taken the tyres off the vehicles after just 40,000km, because we found that they weren’t delivering what we expected.

“When refurbishing one of our bulk trailers, we decided to fit all Continental super singles. The trailer was on the road six days a week and we were over the moon with the service we got from those tyres. From that trial, we found that we would be wise to use Continentals more extensively.”
