Hi folks,

Does anyone have any recommendations for where to get a suitable cardboard box to ship a bike frame?

All the boxes I can find are the wrong shape.

Cheers,

Jim

Bike shops or Halfords, if they have had any deliveries then they are more than happy to give you one to get them out the way. If they have no frame boxes then a bike box cut down will work as well.

I can source one, flat-pack it and send it to you as long as you cover ze postage ;)

Or try your local electrical wholesaler ?

Local bike shop. Kids bike boxes are ideal.
