Sending large heavy E-Bike by courier

Postby woldsweather » 23 Jan 2019, 4:34pm

Any recommendations for a courier to send a 25kg bike 21 x 120 x 190 cm within UK?

DPD website says too big. Parcel monkey £63

Ask your LBS. They will have them delivered by someone.

APC say they will deliver (up to certain size limits) but it say on their website that if a uk delivery they can go larger (can 'phone them to ask).
Don't dismiss parcelforce -strangely it's described as 'Worldwide', although it also covers UK.

Try Paisley Freight. They specialise in 'pushbikes'.

Pallet and wrap it up, and a transport company will send it anywhere.
I sent my Raleigh Chopper plus a trailer full of luggage from Tavistock to Wick in N Scotland. They did it for free coz I was riding JOGLE for charity, but they would have charged £60. Bargain.
