Best Way to get the Bikes to Orange City

What is the best way to ship the bikes to Orange City?

Is Harper’s Bike Shop good? Will they help me ship out from Lansing at the end?

Use a bike shipping service. An example of one is shown below:


Good luck.

I have used Luggage Forward to ship our bikes to Illinois and Florida from the west coast. PROS: Door to door service, contracts with UPS or FedEx, great customer service – a live person on the phone when I call, easily track where your items are. CONS: A bit expensive – about the price of a domestic airline ticket, have to send bikes off about 7 days prior to your destination arrival.

I’ve used sendmybike.com the last 4 times I’ve ridden RAGBRAI. The deliver your bike to the start town and ship it from the end town. I ship my bike and on “medium” sized box, this year the cost was $196 each way. For an additional charge they will assemble your bike at the start town and box it at the end town.
