When sending motorbike wheels and tyres, they must be packed appropriately. Bare motorcycle wheels or motorbike tyres are not acceptable and will be refused by the courier, or returned to you, and a £10.00 collection fee deducted. All wheels, and wheel and tyres, must be boxed. If the motorbike wheels are for refurbishment, or are already scuffed, the minimum requirements for packaging include using either bubble wrap for the bike tyres or motorcycle wheels, and then either boxed, or wrapped in cardboard. This is to avoid any risk of damage when shipping wheels. Do not wrap them in cling film, pallet wrap, or bubble wrap once boxed, as this sticks to the conveyors.
If sending tyres only, these will also need to be boxed.
If you are taking out additional insurance cover (exclusions apply), or the motorcycle wheels are new or refurbished, please follow our packing advice below, as the insurers will reject any claim where the motorbike wheels are insufficiently packed.
It is prohibited to send the following motorbike rims, tyres or rims and tyre combinations through this service:

How to Send Motorbike Wheels by Courier
Double walled cardboard box
A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.
The most important thing to consider when you send motorbike wheels is that they must be well protected for shipping. When sending wheels and wheels and tyres, they must be either boxed, or wrapped in cardboard.
Pay particular attention to the motorcycle wheel rims, as these can be easily damaged in transit. When packing, cover the motorbike wheels with a thick layer of cardboard, carpet, or bubble wrap, secured with parcel tape to hold it in place. Attaching cardboard to each bike wheel rim will help prevent any damage to them during transport.
The next step is to wrap the entire motorbike wheel in bubble wrap, we would recommend using 2 to 3 layers of the larger bubble type, as it offers more protection when sending motorcycle wheels, again using parcel tape to secure the bubble wrap in place. As a guide, if the motorbike wheel was dropped from waist height, the bubble wrap must provide sufficient protection to avoid damage.
Once wrapped in bubble wrap, they need to be boxed. Please use new double walled boxes, used boxes offer less protection. Once boxed, please DO NOT wrap them in cellophane, bubble wrap, or shrink wrap, as this snags on the conveyors.
When choosing a box, double walled boxes are always better. If you cannot obtain the correct sized box, you can wrap them in cardboard, securely fixed with parcel tape. If there is any space left inside the box, this can be filled with additional bubble wrap, polystyrene loose fill, or screwed up newspaper. The idea is that the wheel cannot move around inside the box during transport.
Once the box has been filled, you can then seal it with parcel tape. Again, make sure that there is sufficient tape used, ensuring that the box does not come open during transit.
Rims must be boxed, or wrapped in cardboard and cannot be sent just using shrink wrap or bubble wrap. Once boxed, the outer box must not be shrink wrapped, as this snags the conveyors, plain cardboard only.
Tyres must also be boxed and cannot be sent using just shrink wrap or bubble wrap.
Now that the packing is complete, you just have to attach an address label to each box. Our included insurance cover is up to £50.00, with additional cover available up to £20,000.00.
