Default Re: Shipping a Motorized Bike

I have shipped a couple of bikes......... I use UPS. The first one I shipped in a bicycle box and it was damaged in shipping and because "I" packed it, the insurance claimed that I didn't use a stong enough box. From the looks of the box upon arrival a steel crate would have been damaged. So....

The second bike I shipped I took it to UPS and let them pack it in their box ($43 box..Pretty much the same box I used). Insurance wise they will have to honor their packaging and handling.

I shipped a motorized bike (83lbs) from south Florida to California for $234 including box, packaging and insurance.
