Problems shipping a tandem
I've put an offer in on a T100, but it has to be shipped.
It's coming from Temecula California being shipped up here to Ottawa, Canada. I'd look for something local but the price was right on this one. Even with a couple hundred bucks for packing shipping, it comes out to a reasonable price.
From the seller:
"We have run into problems. The bike shop cannot pack the bike securely enough for shipping. The frame stands too tall for the box. I really donít know what else to do."
I would suggest, of course, that a bike shop that can't put a bike in a box and ship it, probably isn't really trying. (Find a slightly bigger box?)
Anyway, does anyone know any tandem friendly shop in that area that I can direct the seller to?
