I have sold my BMX & need to send it to it's new owner.

I have a bike box from the shop I used to work in

Dimensions are 140x20x80cms, weight ~17kg

senditnow.com

24hr £11.99

But pack it well!

I have sent 2 bikes and received 2 bikes, 1 problem at the mo. But, it is cheap. They sub out to Parcelfarce, who if you went direct would charge £40+.

Senditnow.com look pretty good.

Any other couriers that anyone would recommend?

I'll get some pipe lagging for the bike, got loads of cardboard too & some very strong packing tape, regardless of whom I use.

This ones great, gives you price and courier options. Have used it a couple of times, once DHL recently to Germany for a frame, and once in Uk with someone else. No problems.

Do NOT use Parcel2Go, they are a bunch of clowns. I have had two failed collections in a row and no one seems to give a sod at the company.
