Dropping Off Your Bike

Please note that we use specially designed cardboard boxes to pack and transport bikes. When dropping off your bike, we will unclip the wheel/s and bubble-wrap them, and then place the bike frame and wheel/s in the box. When dropping off the bike, all devices which are not permanently fastened to the bike (such as speedometers, cadence meters, heart rate monitors, water bottles, etc.) can also be placed inside the box.

At The Bike Migration, we realise the value and costs associated with bicycles, and we guarantee that we will take care of your bike as if it were our own.
