Vidir told us the Tire Carousel is super easy to sell!
It basically sells itself. Well they were right and so we love it! It is easy to sell because it really answer a problem our customers are having storing tires. Tires are a huge issue to store they’re a pain to move around. Some tires can get pretty heavy. Tires are usually pretty pricey and there’s no good way to store them without putting them on a car, truck, tractor or heavy equipment. Tire storage needs go beyond just car dealerships though we sell definitely do sell a lot to car dealerships. Municipalities can have lots of heavy expensive tires for their police cars or fire trucks. In fact any business servicing trucks, cars and heavy equipment has tire storage needs. We have installed Tire Carousels at bus terminals, municipalities, Rider Trucks , Penske Trucking, Swift Trucking, Toyota for their forklift tires, and American Airlines .
We have Placed Tire Carousels in A Lot of Auto Car Dealerships!!
So anybody that has a bunch of tires, we do them for anyway. Think of a lot of vehicles sitting around. We do them for. We’ve sold them for them for their service centers and the airports. And Charlotte, anywhere you can think of a lot of fleet vehicles or a lot of tires sitting around, all those tires are stored somewhere and they’re a pain to get down.
In the good days where normally a customer would climb up a ladder to pick tires, that’s sort of dying with all these OSHA regulations and they’re having to get a little bit more automated with how they retrieve the tires.
Tire carousels come in a super simple design.
The first model starts for a twenty inch, to twenty eight inch max tire. So that’s for a passenger car tire. Then we have a thirty two inch max diameter model. Most car dealerships would get a thirty two. Also most municipalities for police cars, the cruisers would get a thirty two inch model for light trucks and SUVs and then you can also store the car tires in that carousel as well.
And then we have full blown tractor trailer tire which is forty four inch max diameter. That’s what we do for the trucking companies, fire trucks, swift Trucking, Penske, Rider, all those guys get the forty four. Also bus terminals, DC bus terminals. They’ve got a bunch of them with the forty four inch.
So anything with that large tire that we call that an eight to fifty four for the forty four inch tires, and that’s a really easy Carousel because those tires are a lot of times are five to six hundred dollars apiece and they’re heavy on our cars so we can store the rim on the tire. So the actual the tire can be mounted to a rim and still put on the carousel and that’s sometimes is up to one hundred and fifty pounds. So to have an employee picking up one hundred fifty pounds is a lot of weight with the worst care. So we have a little ramp, they just roll the tire right up into the carrier, it drops on the carousel and now it is stored, rotating around and it’s a pretty slick design for those big tires on rims.
So here’s a few Tire Carousels in trucking facility. Those are big tires. Some of them you can see are stored on the rim. Another option for this carousel, it’s pretty popular is a security gate. You can see it on the second unit there has been installed in second unit and the third unit down there both have security gates because these tires are so expensive, They have a tendency to walk off, especially in trucking service centers that are open 24/7, high changing employee high turnover rate. They tend to walk off. So a lot of times customers will put that security gate on, keep them all locked, secured, and then as they’re needed, they’ll get pulled from the twenty eight inch max diameter and the thirty two, those are both a thousand pounds per carrier, the fifty four with the big tires for the tractor trailers with the wheel on tires.
That’s two thousand pounds per position.
So many possibilities with this. Like this is in a car dealership here on the mezzanine up there.
You can fit a ton of tires in a tire carousel, anywhere from one hundred and fifty to three hundred, depending on how big of a size tire. There are a ton of variables for this carousel. The length of a carousel at almost 80 feet wide for the carrier. As for height they go twenty five feet tall, the depth changes a little bit as the tire size changes. So if you can just give us a rough estimate of how many tires you have on hand, your biggest tire and we can supply you a good budget price is twenty five to thirty thousand dollars for a tire carousel.
We keep them open so they’re not fully enclosed. So water can run down through the system without an issue if there was a fire. Tires are a pain in the butt and this system makes it really easy.
