      The collection of the rims

      For the shipment of the rims, our forwarding agents usually take over the goods from the curb.

      For this takeover, it is imperative that shipments weighing 30 kg or more are either self-supporting 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 forwarding agents unload the shipment at the delivery address and obtain the signature for acceptance.

      How do I pack rims correctly?

      Proper packing of the rims determines safe transport. Here you will find the most important packaging tips:

      1. Remove all foreign parts- if any - before packing. 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 box. 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 cavity in the box with filler material such as Styrofoam chips or paper.
      6. Clearly mark the packaging with "fragile" or "Caution Glass" for increased safety.
