I recently bought some tires from a private party and am wondering what's the best way to ship these. Any ideas? Would wrapping them up individually and shipping each one by itself be the least expensive route?
Start here http://www.ups.com/ and then go to rates, this would be a good place to start. I see a lot of tires shipped that just have the shipping label stuck to the outside of the tire. I don't see any need to wrap them up.
I sold some tires last summer, and found it cheaper to ship all 4 together. I got a TV box from a Electronics store and just cut the Styrofoam down that was inside for the corners so the box wouldn't collapse and break open if it was dropped, as UPS is know to do from time to time. I had no problems going across 5 states.
