What is the cheapest way to ship a bike in canada

absolute cheapest is by Greyhound. sounds crazy, i know. it works, takes awhile but works.

Purolator is really cheap if you can convince the guy at the counter to price it by weight only. should be around $30. coffee helpstup

Canada Post will be the cheapest out of any mailing place. FedEx, UPS, DHL and other couriers are a fortune. Greyhound is cheap but they charge an oversize fee. I shipped a hockey bag with all my equipment in it so it may weigh like 15 pounds tops and it was $75 to ship it from Calgary to Toronto because the hockey bag was oversized. A bike box is huge so it will be pricey. Definitely call Greyhound with the approximate weight of the package and dimensions and they will give you a quote. Same thing goes with Canada Post or any other courier. You can get quotes online from those places. Also, Greyhound has a limit on the amount of insurance you can put on items so when I decided to ship my hockey bag, it was not with my Easton Synergy Si-Core sticks and Graf skates as two sticks and my skates are over their limit and replacement cost is over $1250.

I guess for me it's more about being independent and not relying on others to do the leg work for you. One quick phone call to Greyhound will give you the lowdown without any misinformation--surprisingly, most vendors are prtty informed about the services they offer...probably moreso than members of the PB community.

So, while I do appreciate being told to put up or shut up...being told to shut up by someone who can't perform such a simple task on his own has so little bearing on anything I will say or do in the future that it's probably more of an insult to you than it is to me.
