Shipping Wheels and Tires

 

Whether a tire manufacturer, or a dealership, or an auto service shop, you need a way to move tires and wheels. As with any car parts shipment, it can be difficult to find a carrier who can handle this kind of unique shipment, and if you do find that carrier, they can charge quite a bit for their services. Spend too much on shipping, and you can find yourself losing money on your sale, or having to charge your customer more money.

Shipping Tires to Customer Expectations

 

Communication is an important part to a successful shipment and customer transaction. It’s important to be updated and to be able to update your customers on the progress of the tire shipment. Working with a carrier who is capable of sharing tracking with you is an important part of success. You would also want to be sure the carrier has experience in shipping tires and wheels. If you have more than one tire shipment coming in or going out, you want a tool that helps you keep track of all your shipments and allows you to organize your freight. To maintain your bottom line, you definitely want to work toward a rewarding shipping experience, while finding the cheapest way to ship tires.

How to Ship Tires

 

    • 1. Take Photos of Your Tires: Wheels and tires can easily show flaws in aesthetic, including dings, dents, bends. You’ll want to take photos of your tires before they are shipped, just in case.

 

    • 2. Packaging Multiple Tires for Shipping: There are a couple of options when it comes to packaging your tires. You can put the tires in cardboard boxes or on a pallet. If you are using cardboard, make sure it is strong enough to handle the loading and offloading. You may also want to gather some foam or bubble wrap for extra protection, and packing peanuts to fill the space between tires and cardboard. If you’re palletizing the tires, be sure to secure them by banding and stretchwrapping the shipment.

 

  • 3. Choosing a Service Provider It’s important to be able to trust your service provider. uShip makes it easy to have full access and communication with your carrier, and our support team as well. The carriers we work with are each reliable, and our service in convenient for both you and your customer. Our partnered carriers are providing uShip their lowest rates possible for your freight.
