The sheer number and size of potholes in metro Detroit are keeping local tyre shops swamped with customers.
Pot-holes that damage tyres are a major problem everywhere? But you can claim your money back
This is a story that I have been harping on about for a few years now. It seems that local government highway departments and city government departments are
struggling with the enormity of the problem.
This excellent article is from the Detroit metro in Canada, but the story could be from any city in the “Western World”. From a local point of view we have the same problems across the whole of the UK. We are also benefiting from the extra business that this problem is bringing into us, damage to the wheels and damage to the tyres.
The potholes also cause damage to the cars suspension and often knock out the cars wheel alignment. Some of the damage can be claimed back from your local authority here
in the UK, I do not know how the law works in other countries, but if you take a picture of the potholes and get an invoice for the work carried out on your car, then you can put in a claim for compensation, to recover your losses from the damage that the potholes caused.
A few of our customers did this after our advice and were successful with their claim.
Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. I worked for a couple of national tyre companies before starting my first business. I now own a company here in the UK called PellonTyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business.
