Bike Box Hire

Stress free travelling with your bike


image1 4If you love your bike, it is more than likely that one day you will want to take it on your travels with you – be that on a family holiday or a group riding trip. But putting your bike unprotected in the hold of a plane is not the wisest plan if you want to ensure it arrives damage free. The answer is to hire a bike box from us.

Hiring a bike box ensures your pride and joy reaches its destination safe and sound. There are no rented bikes to ruin your planned riding because they do not quite fit, and also it allows you to keep that bond between yourself, your bike and your riding experiences.

We charge for this service by the day (or part day) to ensure that you get maximum flexibility… you can book for a day or two up to three weeks and more if that is what you need. We book out standard sized boxes for “normal” bikes, whilst also having one Brompton bike hire case available – this little beauty will transform your business trip, city break or family holiday.

Hire rate is £7.50 per day (or part of a day – as we can’t rent it out to someone else that same day). If we don’t already know you well, a deposit is charged of £100 and you will need to provide ID.

If you want us to pack the bike for you we are happy to help. There is a discretionary charge for this of £15 to cover time.
