This page allows you to register your interest in hiring a pair of Spikes Spiders.

This is how our chain hire system works:

  • Leave a note in the 'Order comments' section of the order form at the checkout to confirm: 1. Your tyre size; 2. Your wheel nut size (in mm, this measurement will be 17mm, 19mm, 21mm, 22mm, or 24mm; check with a socket set if you are unsure); 3. The start date of the hire period.
  • We'll deliver the chains to you in good time.
  • If we receive the chains back here within 13 days of the start of the Hire period there will be no extra charges.
  • Note 1: The Hire starts on the day you leave home at the start of your holiday. Note 2: All days, including Bank Holidays, count as "days".
  • Shipping the chains back to us needs to be arranged yourself ASAP after you return, at your expense; use a "To be signed for" service from e.g. your firm's normal courier or the post office.
  • We provide return packaging and, of course, full details of what's required.
  • When the Spiders are back here we'll refund the deposit, less any extra days which are charged at £5.00 a day.
  • Normal carriage terms and conditions apply to e.g. Highland and "over the water" destinations - details on order pages.
  • We always charge the deposit shown, even if you do untick the "Order deposit" box!
  • If the chains aren't back here within 73 days we will charge you an extra £100 and you should keep them! Contact us if you want a hire deal longer than 60 days.
  • Example: You are away for 2 weeks, leaving home on Friday (Day 1) to be in the resort on the Saturday. You get home on a Sunday (Day 17), and the chains are back here on Wednesday (Day 20). The total Hire charge will be £79.95 + 7 extra days = £114.95.

Please therefore order as normal, if we require any additional information we will contact you.

Spikes-Spiders use a combination of studs and chains to provide essential extra traction on snow, grass or sand. These "SPORT" chains are suitable for vehicles up to 3 tonnes, including motorhomes - if your vehicle is heavier than this, please let us know.

Fitting is very quick and easy:

  • Fit a Spikes-Spider mounting plate to each driving wheel before you leave home.
  • When needed, take the Spiders out of their carrying case, push the chain over the top and sides of the tyre, leaving the green section sitting against the wall of the tyre at ground level - see left hand picture.
  • Lock the Spider to its mounting plate with the locking plate.
  • Do the same on the other side, get back in the car, and slowly drive off. The green sections will wind onto the tyres automatically.

Removing the Spiders is equally simple:

  • Take off the locking plates, pull the Spiders off the top and sides of the tyres, drive forward and they'll fall onto the road.
  • Give them a shake to remove any snow or slush and put them back in their carrying case.

Fitting time shouldn't be more than 30 seconds a side, and with practice you'll get it down to 15 seconds a side!

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, if the order is placed before the cut-off time (see above). Some will arrive on the second working day if there has been a "split-delivery". So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
