Recommend me a courier to send a bike

4 posts in this topic

I've got a bike i need to send all packaged up however I can't find any quotes for less than £35 which seems steep? I've not sent a bike out in a long time by the way.

If collection is possible that would be ideal too.

Cheers

Not Hermes, not Yodel.  Anyone but them.  Absolute clusterf**ks.  We usually find www.interparcel.com does the best out of any other comparison type sites, and it makes it pretty easy to use some of the more random couriers out there.  £35 sounds like a lot, but that does kind of depend on the size of the box.  Generally speaking the smaller you can make it the better, so if you're able to track down a slightly smaller bike box it may be worth it.

That's where I'm getting my quote of £35. Its 140x25x80 and 12kg. Cant really get anything smaller cause I've got to have it sent off tomorrow or tuesday and I'm working through both days.

Had already counted out yodel and Hermes :P

Paisley Freight, every time.

They just outsource it to whoever is cheapest but I've never yet had a problem with any of the stupid sized shit I've posted, including 10 ton car seats and fibreglass kayaks :)
