Which courier is best for cycle delivery?
Bicycle Couriers. Right here. Based on number of happy clients. And successful and on time deliveries. Plus the fact that we have never had an insurance claim (touch wood, don’t jinx it now…). And because of our passion for cycling and indeed bicycles. Because it certainly isn’t always about the money. Sometimes we really just do it for the love of cycling. And that makes us the best courier for cycle delivery.
Can you send a bike by courier?
Of course! Every single day.
You certainly can. It is cheaper and safer to send it boxed. We have a brilliant bikebox that won the EUROBIKE startup award. Which is ideal for frequent bike travelers. Or you can drop off your bicycle to have it boxed at your favourite local bike shop. And we will liaise with them and collect the bike directly from the shop when ready. Now you do have to go to and fro, with a boxed bike. We make your life easier. By sending your bike by courier.
How can I send my bicycle?
Boxed. Or not.
Book your boxed bicycle transport online with #bicyclecouriers and we will collect door to door. Provided that it is already boxed by the time collect. And what if you don’t have a box? Just drop off the bike at a shop. Which shop can I use? We will send them the PDF waybill to print and stick on the box when ready. Welcome to the first word in bike travel. This is how you can send your bicycle!
Is being a bike courier worth it?
In a word: YES
Is being a bicycle courier company worth it? We certainly think so. There are many different kinds of bicycle couriers. Here are 3 examples. Firstly, you get those who deliver parcels via bike (that’s not us). Secondly you get those who take 50 or 100 bikes at a time in a specialized bicycle only truck to a specific race (that was us). And then you get those who do boxed bicycle transport for anyone, anywhere (this is us!). So, if you are buying or selling bicycles online then we are the ones to ship them for you.
Who is the Best Bicycle Courier?
Plural: Bicycle Couriers
Based on my biased opinion this is Bicycle Couriers. Because that is what we do. All across South Africa, and beyond. And before BC it was MMB. At least in Cape Town. Because this is what we did. Exactly the same as Joggie in from up North (with thanks, we’ve come a long way). Before I sold the company. To start what you have here now, bicyclecouriers.co.za/. Because we are the Best Bicycle Courier.
Bicycle transport South Africa
For any type of bicycle
Road bikes, MTB gravel bikes, hybrid, commuter bikes, e-bikes, folding bikes, cruisers, delivery bikes, fat bikes, women’s bikes, kids bicycles, tricycles and even bikes we haven’t thought of just yet. And of course, mountain bikes is a very general term and can at least be expanded to include full suspension and hardtails, trail, XC and downhill bikes. Yes, we send them all. Standard box, standard price. Which means that tandems and e-bikes that go into oversized boxes might be shipped at a slightly higher rate. Bicycle transport in South Africa and beyond.
How much does it cost to courier a bicycle?
Special: roughly R699 to 999
At the current rates it is R699 from a bike shop, or R749 for door to door. The reduced rate from ‘n bike shop is to help offset the minor cost of boxing your bike, and to encourage you to use bike shops. Which makes it easier for all of us. You to send your bike. The shop to box your bike. And us to collect and deliver your bike. The above are main centre rates. Remote areas are currently on special for R999. And we can even send it with 24hr express, ie overnight. After all, it costs very little to courier a bicycle (especially if you consider the value of the item). What a bargain.

Long-time friends and founders of the ‘bicycle courier’ website (curiously right after I registered ‘bicycle couriers’ with them. This husband-and-wife team have been doing what we do for ages. Albeit with a more offline approach. And we continue to work alongside each other. And I can vouch for how they operate. I would certainly send my own bike with Triptych Resources (and have done so before).
