Moving tires with rims from Toronto to Edmonton

Any suggestions on how to move them cost effectively?

I’m also thinking of just selling them. I’d rather keep them if I could.

I looked into shipping a set from Toronto to Vancouver, and it was going to be about $500 plus packaging materials (cardboard, stretch wrap, nylon strapping, etc).

edit: that was through either UPS or Fedex. I just used their online shipping estimator.

Put them on a vehicle and drive them.

How old are they? What is cost of shipping vs. replacement cost (less the amount you would get for the sale)?

Doesn't Greyhound do some sort of freight rate on their busses?

Late 2019 I got a set of wheels and tires shipped from Alberta to Ontario and it was about $400-500 with packaging and FedEx. FedEx was the cheapest at the time when compared to UPS, Purolator and CanadaPost.

Last summer UPS was the cheapest for wheels only at $180 from Quebec to Ontario.

Not anymore for Canada. Greyhoud domestic routes no longer exist in Canada due to drop in ridership. They stopped all Western Canada routes about 3 years ago(Oct 2018). Ontario and Quebec domestic routes stopped just before the summer of this year(May 2021).

Any Greyhoud bus you see on our roads is doing cross-border transit. They now only operate from Vancouver to Seattle, Toronto to Buffalo, Montreal to Boston or NY,

Not any more....

Greyhound Canada Closes its Services in Canada

Due to sustained ridership declines in Ontario and Quebec, Greyhound Canada has made the difficult decision to discontinue all operations on its remaining routes in Ontario and Quebec, and will permanently close all services in Canada effective May 13, 2021
