    Shipping bike within France

    Hi all,
    I have a travel bike with S&S couplings that packs into a std. size hard case. I want to be able to ship/transport the bike from Perpignan to Montesquiou, which is a small village south west of Toulouse. Do any of you know of ways to ship within France? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I asked the same question about shipping a box from England to France at the ctc's forum. Here is a link to the thread. Both responses suggested interpostal. But, I don't know if it works just inside France.

    Hi Sally,
    France has UPS and several other shipping services. They are efficient and not expensive. Mail works well as well. If the bike is assembled it can be easily shipped from most train depots (Gares). You can use trains to ship your S&S Case as well. It is quite easy. Just ask your hotel to help you. We live ther part time and have shipped stuff back to the USA and inside France and it is not difficult. Language can be a hassle.
