Can anyone recommend a company and got any tips for sending a complete bike by post?
Sending a complete bike by post/courier?
Box it in a bike box.
Note the box dimensions.
Use the interweb to search different couriers.
find the cost.
get back up off the floor
Inter parcel are under £20 if you pack well
Paisley freight. cost me £22 and the service was spot on.
I'm about to send a bike with Paisley. £21.50 for a bike in a box. Then £25.99 for £750 of insurance.
I've used them a few times for gearboxes and car wheels and they've always been fine.
senditnow.com will do complete bike in box up to 16kg for £10.99 but youre only covered for £100 insurance
Parcelmonkey.com you pick the company from a list and insurance is cheap (and they pay out speaking from experience!)
Definitely a bike box from LBS is cheapest and best way
Sent one from Leicestershire to Kent a few months back for £21.50 through Paisleyfreight.
They come to your house and pick it up. Pack it well (box from bike shop) and take wheels off and you'll have no bother...it was easy-peasy and arrived exactly as I'd posted it. I didn't have insurance - I think it was included in the price but I could be wrong...
Heard good things about Paisleyfrieght.
I would use them again if I needed to send a bike - wouldn't bother with anyone else.
