How to pack tyres – The Packaging Doctor

By Carl Board • Thursday 28th September 2017

Here in the Packaging Doctor’s surgery, we get to help customers with a variety of different products and requirements. This week, a business needs some help packing tyres which they send out to customer using a courier service…

Dear Doctor,

We are looking for a way to pack tyres, as we send them to customers using a courier service. With so many different packaging products to choose from, we need some advice selecting the best materials for our products – which is why we need your help!

What would you suggest we use?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anna and Ken,

Thank you for getting in touch. We can appreciate that there are a range of options available and it can be challenging to choose the most appropriate for the job. However, with our expert team available to talk to you, we can be sure to help you find the materials you need!

We would first suggest using custom logo pallet wrap, which is not only a great product to use to wrap goods but also promotes your brand to others. As we would hope the tyres are quite hardwearing, they may just require a material to protect the finish and ensure the tyres arrive in good condition to your customer. It may also be useful to use if you are shipping pallets of tyres, as the stretch wrap can be wrapped around to secure and stabilise the pallet, whilst also promoting your brand to generate brand awareness.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to pack individual tyres with more protective materials, you could use Kite’s double wall boxes, which are available in a range of sizes. Double wall boxes are made from two layers of corrugated cardboard, which makes them suitable for packing heavier items. These two layers of board also help to absorb any impact from transporting or handling, protecting the tyre within. To protect any special finishes on the tyre or fill any voids within the box, you could use bubble wrap which would ensure the tyre remains in place within the box, reducing the chances of it getting damaged during transit. Secure the boxes with custom logo tape, and this method also helps to promote your brand, as well as securing each box well and ensuring the tyre is delivered safely and presentably.

As you can see, there are alternative methods you could use to pack your tyres, and our team are always on hand to provide additional product information and work with you to create the most effective solution for your requirements. We hope that you will find these methods useful and look forward to working with you! Best wishes,

The Packaging Doctor
