Michelin offers farmers ‘tyres on tick’
Financing is now available for UK purchasers of Michelin agricultural tyres through the company’s new ‘Flexelagri’ credit scheme. The tyre maker says qualifying UK farmers and contractors looking to purchase Michelin agricultural drive or trailer tyres, or the rims required for its Ultraflex technology, will be able to spread the cost over two years at a 0 per cent finance rate. No deposit is required, however a £100 administration fee applies.
“We are the first agricultural tyre manufacturer to offer such a deal in the UK,” commented Mike Lawton, commercial director of Michelin’s Agriculture division. “Michelin tyres are a premium brand and the upfront cost can sometimes be daunting for customers, even though the quality of the product balances out the costs by delivering increased longevity matched by impressive performance in the field and on the road. This deal allows our customers the financial flexibility to spread the cost of their new tyres over 24 months.”
As mentioned, the promotion includes Michelin’s full range of agricultural drive and trailer tyres, including its patented Ultraflex technology tyres, which are designed to carry the same load at lower pressures, or heavier loads at the same pressure, compared with conventional agricultural tyres. The Ultraflex range includes Michelin’s AxioBib and XeoBib tyres for use on tractors, CerexBib tyres for combine harvesters and SprayBib tyres for self-propelled sprayers.
To take advantage of the Flexelagri payment plan, a single transaction must total at least £3,500, and not exceed £15,000. Furthermore, all tyres must be purchased from one of Michelin’s participating Exelagri accredited dealers. The total amount will then be payable in 24 equal monthly direct debit instalments.
