      The collection of the rims

      For the shipment of the rims, our freight forwarders usually collect the goods from the curb.

      For this purpose, it is imperative that shipments weighing 30 kg or more are either accessible from underneath or placed on a pallet for shipping.

      The delivery of the rims

      Like the pickup, the delivery of the rims is free curbside. For this purpose, our forwarders unload the shipment at the delivery address and obtain the signature for acceptance.

      How do I package rims correctly?

      Proper packaging of the rims determines safe transport. Here are the most important packaging tips:

      1. Before packaging, remove - if present - all foreign parts. These include tire pressure sensors or wheel nuts, for example.
      2. Clean the rims thoroughly to avoid damage or scratches caused by dirt or dust.
      3. Use a suitable cardboard. This should consist of thick walls and be slightly larger than the rims. Ideally, use special rim boxes.
      4. Wrap the rims in bubble wrap (or similar cushioning material).
      5. Then fill the cavities in the box with filling material such as polystyrene chips or paper.
      6. For greater safety, mark the packaging with "fragile" or "caution glass".

      Which shipping is right for me - freight forwarding or parcel service?

      If you want to ship your rims, you have the choice between different suppliers. Some shippers offer a parcel service where you can also send your rims as a parcel. For larger rims or higher quantities, however, a forwarding transport is recommended. Cargoboard is always at your side as experienced freight forwarder in the field of rim logistics.
