The most important thing to consider when you send alloy wheels is that they must be well protected for shipping.
Pay particular attention to the rims, as these can be easily damaged in transit. When packing, cover the rims with a layer of cardboard or bubble wrap, secured with parcel tape to hold it in place. Attaching cardboard to each rim will help prevent any damage to them during transport.
The next step is to wrap the entire wheel in bubble wrap, we would recommend using the larger bubble type, as it offers more protection when sending alloy wheels, again using parcel tape to secure the bubble wrap in place. As a guide, if the 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. If sending a full set of wheels, 2 can be put into one box, with the faces opposite each other, with a layer of bubble wrap in between. 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.
Tyres can be boxed or wrapped in shrink wrap. It is important that they are wrapped or boxed, as the parcel labels do not stick to rubber.
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, with additional cover available up to £3000.
