Bikes are big and rather bulky items and shipping bikes economically can often be quite a challenge. One typically doesn’t transport bikes using traditional shipping services, and sometimes alternative arrangements need to be found.
Well – the good news for bike lovers and that shipping bikes economically is now easy and stress-free with the options that CitizenShipper.com opens up. Our website, one of the first of it’s kind, allows members to ship large and bulky items, like bikes, by connecting you with drivers planning on making similar trips anyway. In the business it’s called Less-Than-Truckload, or LTL shipping, and bascially entails drivers with spare space on their trucks looking for additional shipments to take up the extra space.
If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. If you were driving from the East Coast, to the West Coast, you’d want your truck to be put to it’s best possible use. The great think about CitizenShipper is that we help connect the drivers who are looking to do just this, with members of the public and small businesses who are looking to get a bargain on their shipping. It therefore becomes a win-win situation.
Drivers get to make a little extra money on the spare space in their trucks, and clients get to ship their stuff for a real bargain.
When it comes to shipping bikes economically, we recommend you give CitizenShipper a try. You won’t even need to disassemble the bike into parts, or put it into a box, unless you choose to, of course. Because drivers generally have ample space in their vehicles, you can leave your bike assembled. Also, if there’s more than just one bike, say you have a family, and want to ship several bikes, this is another great option for you.
Shipping bikes economically need not be expensive, or a headache. Simply list your shipment for FREE on our site and start receiving bids. We don’t take any commission so the rates you receive all go to the driver!
