Tour Easy shipping
 
Have you had experience shipping a lwb bent via commercial carrier? Gonna need to get mine from Texas to Wisconsin this fall. Box size is too big for airlines. Fedex wants $200. Haven't checked with bus or Amtrak yet. I'll be flying to/from via SW.

Have you looked into shipping it by train or bus?

Looks like it'll be by bus. $70 from online source. Will confirm that at bus station asap. Can't get anyone to answer phone at Trailways. Gonna take a lot of careful packing.

Addenda: Finally got a person at Trailways to answer the phone. $80, box size no issue as long as it'll fit in the bin. Will hold at receiving station for 30 days.

try UPS.. had a rotator pursuit shipped from Maine to Ontario at a reasonable rate some years ago

UPS wants $200 'cause it's 'oversize.'

Cyclebum, can you pm me or post here the online source you found? I called the local bus station to check on a rate for Louisiana to South Dakota and got nowhere near the low number you posted.
Thanks.

Yikes! I guess they decided to jack up the price.

Not sure why I forgot about this link - http://www.bikeflights.com/ but it's been recommended by a few people.
