View Full Version : shipping box borrow

06-05-2008, 05:51 PM
Hi. I'm shipping by bike to Ohio on June 23rd for a bike trip. Does anyone have a hard-shell bike box/container I can borrow or rent?
I'm a trustworthy guy, but I can provide references or a deposit if you like. Or are there any bikeshops in town that rent these containers?
Thanks, Jim

I'd suggest that you contact any Bike Gallery store and see if they have a Trek Madonne box. They usually sell for about $25 but are tougher than nails and can be used several times. They come with additional foam and tie down straps and are well padded.
Just my $.02.

I have a cardboard bike box you may HAVE. A bicycle was shipped via UPS to me in this very box.
