Actually it is suppose to be made to withstand more PSI than a driveway from my understanding gathered from talking to a guy that installs them for a living. I do not recall the numbers but I do remember him informing they actually were made to withstand impacts like that.

William, my suggestion is to go look at it, question the employee and use your judgement. I had a guy try to say that my crew ran over and broke his a few years ago. I informed him that there was no crew as I was solo then and that I simply did not hit it (he was neighboring property not one I care for) . The guy insisted that I did it even after I informed him that there is one thing about concrete, it will eventually crack. He wanted my insurance information, called the police to report etc etc.

The end result - the police report showed no signs of a mower tire or that a mower had been on the property which led the insurance company to inform the customer " Soil settles in your location, concrete cracks with time- NO SOUP FOR YOU"
