What we do

We recommend always taking a bicycle along on vacations. That way, when your significant other is swapping stories with long-lost high-school chums, you can be riding! Plus, you won’t worry about all those calorie-rich meals if your exercise machine is ready and waiting.

For driving trips, it’s easy to carry the bike on a vehicle rack. When you fly, however, you must box your bike to meet airline requirements and because it’s the best way to safeguard it. Once boxed, you can check the bicycle as luggage and take it with you so it arrives when you do. The airlines usually charge a fee for bicycles, so be prepared by checking with your carrier beforehand.

To avoid this fee and the hassle of checking in with your bike, an alternative is shipping it via United Parcel Service (UPS). We have a UPS account and can ship it for you if desired.

Whether you fly with your bike or ship it to your vacation destination, you’ll need to partially disassemble it and box it. That's where we come in.

Below are the steps we'll take to make sure your bike gets to where it needs to be in one piece:
