Does your company provide tire shipping services to customers? Shipping tires is not simple due to their irregular shapes. Special precautions must be taken to ensure your tires are shipped without possible occurrence of damages. Whether you are shipping in bulk or small quantities, it is always important to follow the proper steps when preparing your tires for shipping. Toronto Stretch Wrap provides you with helpful tips that can maximize your company’s tire shipping.
Choosing a transportation company for your tires is the easy part. There are thousands of carriers and truckers available to ship your tires all across the country. Using traditional parcel shipping companies such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL will result in extra costs your company. You are also required to make sure that your tires do not exceed the allowed parcel weight for each intended carrier.
To ensure your tires are shipped safely, communicate frequently with your carrier of choice. Should your tires be transported for long distances, your carrier may request that your tires and wheels be placed on a pallet for shipment. When loads are palletized, they are easy to load and unload both during shipment and upon reaching their final destination.
Preparing your tires for shipping does not have to be daunting. To properly package your tires and rims for shipment, make sure to clean your tires first. When tires are clean, they are less susceptible to accumulating dirt and dust throughout transit. Your carrier may request that you wrap your tires into groups of two as doing so will be easier for your carrier to maneuver your tires. More importantly, it is always recommended that you protect rims and other metal parts with thick cardboard. Remember that wheels are more susceptible to damage during transit than tires. Taking the proper precautions when packaging your tires will undoubtedly prevent disastrous outcomes.
