Specialized in wholesale and export of used tyres from Europe

Our sales team looks back on many years of experience in exporting used tyres from Europe to buyers worldwide. We are specialized in wholesale and export of used tyres from Germany to Africa, UK, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Netherland, Ireland, North and South America in particular.

We know any pitfalls and make sure to clear every obstacle in advance

EXPORT OF SECOND HAND TYRES TO AFRICA

Thanks to our longstanding business relationships we have built a large customer base in Africa. We regularly load 20ft. HQ shipping containers and 40ft. HQ shipping containers with used tyres and export these to our customers from Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Cameroon, Guinea, Libya, Senegal, Gabon and many other countries on the African continent.

We pre-sort used tyres in our warehouse specially for the respective markets. This enables us to offer our goods at competitive prices and conditions.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a first-time buyer or a long-term partner. We assure you – you will always get the best possible price and service.

SELLING THE RIGHT TIRE SIZES

As an experienced used tyre distributor we are familiar with the needs of the various markets. We provide new customers with our knowledge of popular tyre sizes for the respective countries and help them choose the right tire sizes in order to achieve the highest profit possible.

Gladly we can also advise you on strategies for successfully selling the used tires locally. For example, it often makes more sense to sell used tires exported from Germany in a bundle.

Otherwise you might sell the best-known numbers to retailers quickly, but get stuck with the less popular sizes.

TRANSPORT & SHIPPING OF USED TYRES

Together with our long-term partners we offer a door-to-door service. We cannot stress enough how important it is to work with reputable shipping and freight forwarding companies. A smooth process only can be guaranteed if they have the necessary experience in exporting of used tyres.

If you want to organize the transport yourself, please make sure from the outset that the shipping company takes over the complete handling of the transport. Before ordering the container, let yourself be told in writing which information is absolutely necessary.

Missing documents or information such as the MRN number (Movement Reference Number) will not be tolerated by the customs authorities and they will detain the container. The storage of a 20ft container fully loaded with used tyres will cost 35 Euro for each day at the EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg. A 40ft. ISO container will cost 70 Euro for each day.

REDUCE TRANSPORT COSTS BY DOUBLING AND TRIPLING

If requested by our customers we double, triple or quadruple the used tyres for a small extra charge. The packing significantly increases the number of tyres that can be loaded into an shipping container. That lowers transport costs and maximizes your profit. When making your request, please indicate which packing method you prefer for your order and we will make you a suitable offer.

40ft. HQ SHIPPING CONTAINER

WE ONLY SELL & EXPORT MIXED CONTINGENTS OF USED TYRES

Please understand that for economic reasons it is not possible for us to offer you only requested sizes. We sell and export our used tyres from Germany in mixed contingents. This means we will add a few extra sizes on top of your list which will sell very well in your market.
This way we can continue to offer our customers low prices.

If you want to find out more about the sizes that we will include, please contact us.

Why you should buy used tyres from Turak Tyres

HIGH PROFILE USED TYRES

According to the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations 1.6 mm profile for winter tyres and summer tyres are prescribed by law. However, experience has shown that this is too low for effective water drainage and safe driving in German weather conditions.

It is recommended to change summer tyres at 3 mm and winter tyres at 4 mm remaining tread depth. This means that the used tyres we collect have a high residual profile.

HIGH QUALITY BRANDED GOODS

We have established a network of used tyre suppliers like car service stations, tyre dealers and car dealerships which supply the highest quality available on the market.

We also owe the high quality of our assortment to the fact that the German car tyre market has a high share of well-known brands such as:

TESTED & E-MARK CERTIFIED USED TYRES

After collecting the tyres, we transport them to our warehouse, where our experienced workers visually inspect and sort them. Only the best tyres are added to our assortment. For this procedure various criteria must be met such as:

  • Minimum legally prescribed tread depth available
  • No age cracks, the tyre surface is not brittle
  • No bulges or dents can be seen on the fabric of the tyre sidewall
  • The running surface is not worn one-sided
  • The tyre is E-mark certified

We ensure that every used tyre that leaves our warehouse complies with EU or International (UNECE) standards in relation to its dimensions, load and speed rating. Any tyre that does not meet these safety standards will be properly disposed.
