Need advice
« on: August 16, 2020, 09:37:58 am »
Hey everyone, I am going to shift in California from san fransico within a week. My preparations are done. I have 1 pet and 1 bike and also one mind eating wife(Hope she doesn't read). So my most of preparation are done But i am finding some difficultly in shipping my bike.
After some forum research i find that these two are available trusted bike transported in my location.

1. Bike flight (https://www.bikeflights.com/) :-  Althrough they are first choice and there are quiet popular but there pricing is high.
 
2. Citizenshipper (https://citizenshipper.com/motorcycle-transportation) :- Got there recommendation from 2 forums, There pricing are good but i don't know much about them.

Whats your stand on them. I want to know your experience of bike shipping with any service provider.

Other shipping service provider suggestion are most welcome.

Welcome to the forums.

Do a search on shipping a bicycle in these forums.  Over the years I've seen many postings about shipping a bike so you will see what others have experienced.

If you are a member of ACA you get a discount on bikeflight.

Check shipbikes.com too. You can also price it out directly with FedEx and UPS  Even though the bike shippers are merely FedEx or UPS resellers, they often offer better rates.

I don’t know what price you consider high nor where you are shipping from, but it’s never what I would call cheap. Also investigate what it would cost to take it with you as luggage (my preference). Different carriers charge wildly different amounts, so consider the total cost before you buy your ticket.
