CalChrome Shipping

California Chrome Wheel has developed superior shipping methods to ensure your wheels arrive safely and efficiently. Unmarked boxes that do not identify the contents as well as protective rings ensures that your wheels will arrive safely, securely, and anonymously.

Shipping & Receiving

Our shipping and receiving department has the capacity to ship large palletized orders that can be shipped by common carrier truck line. Or install new chromes to your vehicle while you wait.

Pictured above is a palletized order, ready for
shipping by LTL truck line.

Tracking Your Wheel

The C# is visible both before and after plating. The
wheel shown has been chrome plated. C# markings
are still clearly visible.

To make sure that you receive the exact same wheel back when plating your wheels, we specially mark the wheel for identification throughout the entire plating process. Each wheel is engraved with a unique number, known as a C# (Customer Identification Number)

All C#s are marked in an inconspicuous place on the wheel, which will not be visible once the tire is installed. This ensures continuous, exact, progressive status of your wheels during our processing. Upon completion, if we have multiple wheels with the same number. Or if you have wheels that we are not familiar with (aftermarket, custom wheels, etc), this ensures that you receive the exact same wheels back.

Our state of the art FedEx shipping system links directly into the FedEx supply chain database. This allows us to track incoming shipments, as well as tracking outgoing shipments that we have already processed. We are able to constantly communicate with our system, to follow and track customers packages throughout the total freighting system within the United States.

Packaging - Wheel & Tire Package

For automotive wheels that are shipped with tires mounted and balanced, at CalChrome we use our custom boxes along with a proprietary injected foam molding technique that ensures no damage to the face of your new wheel.

Packaging - Wheels only

For automotive wheels that are 19 inches and larger, we utilize a priprietary foam injected wheel cell technique which provides supreme protection not only for the face of the wheel, but also the front and back lip. The foam used in the molds suspends the wheel in a non-compressive protective barrier that has been tested by being dropped from 10 feet! This custom foam molding technique was developed by and is available exclusively at CalChrome!
