Shipping Wheels and Tires

Okay, well I'm trying to sell my stock wheels and tires, but how do I go about shipping them? I don't have any boxes at the moment, and I really don't have a clue on how to go about shipping on these things.

I've seen them just wrapped in cardboard and tape. You can get all the old boxes you want from a furniture store you want

I used BAX Global in the past, their prices were good and they just picked them up.

My mechanic told me about Greyhound - the bus line - if you call them - they also have a shipping department that is dirt cheap - its called the belly of the bus. Kinda neat -

Also - and more commonly known about - Uship.com I'm on there myself. People bid or you state what you will pay to have something shipped.

I would think if you wrap the tire/wheel in bubble wrap - just somethign to protect the wheel mainly - you should be good - maybe cut some cardboard to fit the circumfrence of the wheel then bubblerap it or simply packaging tape to hold on the cardboard?

I'm going to be in the same perdicimant as you soon - my wheels/tires are being ordered here soon and my stock 16" Lariats will be going up soon.

Good luck to you buddy!

Throw them on a pallet and wrap them up. Have you never used a freight line before?

Nope, I've never had to ship something like this before. Is this a complicated process?

Not at all. I use freight lines daily shipping oilfield equipment. I frequently have to take product over to the dock after hours and it is a very simple process. They will unload the pallet from your truck for you. That would be the way to go if I were shipping something like this.
