If you want to ship a bicycle, there are many things to consider. After all, due to the size and shape of bicycles, a number of special features must be taken into account when shipping bicycles.
The reasons to ship bicycles can be very different:
With bikes being bought and sold online, shipping bikes is now a much sought-after service. Both business customers and private individuals depend on high-quality services here. With Mail Boxes Etc. you have the possibility to realize your bicycle shipment individually. For this we rely on a personal consultation on the phone or on site by our experienced shipping professionals. Contact us directly with your request and we will find a customized solution for you.
If you send a bike by mail, the cost can vary greatly. Among other things, the weight and dimensions of the bike play a role. If you want to send an e-bike, for example, it should be noted that it is heavier and larger than a road bike.
In addition, the selected shipping services also play a role, especially for business customers. Is storage and picking desired? Are many bikes shipped on a regular basis? Is it a national or international shipment?
Therefore, in order to determine the best offer for you, discuss your request personally with our service staff. They will be able to determine your needs and create a customized cost plan based on your shipping plans. Factors such as quantity discounts and booked additional services - such as special packaging with printing - also come into play here. Together, we can work out the best conditions for your order.
To be able to transport the bike safely and undamaged, the right packaging is relevant. High-quality bicycles should be specially secured for transport. Sensitive components such as the gears on a mountain bike or the battery on an e-bike can be protected by additional packaging material. With these tips, you can send a bike by mail and protect it from transport damage:
Use flexible bubble wrap for packing individual parts and sturdier air pillows for filling possible gaps in the packaging.
Very heavy as well as bulky packages are classified as bulky goods. This can happen quickly when shipping bicycles. In particular, heavy components such as an e-bike are crucial here. For business customers, we offer solutions such as pallet shipping. Shipping for private customers can also be optimized. Among other things, it is possible to distribute the shipment over several packages. We determine individually which shipping options are the best for your request.
