    Shipping bike from Canada to USA

    Anybody find good shipping options from Canada to USA? I tried pricing out BikeFlights but it looks to be $350+.

    My understanding is that bike flights just sublets to whatever courier they feel like. I recently looked into shipping costs and Loomis was the cheapest I could find.
    I really doubt that your going to find someone that will charge less than $500 CND. The quotes are low but you will have to add on all of their surcharges and taxes.
    If you can put it on a plane yourself, and trust someone to pick it up then I would suspect $100. We shipped a Dog on WestJet Toronto to Kelowna and it was cheap. They have a cargo terminal that you use so you don't interact with passengers.

    I have flown annually from Calgary to the southern USA with my bike on WestJet and have had no issues. Was $52 each way in 2012 and is now $75 but thanks to the cool WestJet staff I bet I only paid full fare less than five times.

    Looked at various shipping options over the years and none came close to me bringing it with me on the flight.

    I did invest in an EVOC bike bag a few years ago and that makes it easier than any cardboard bike box or the old thule hard bike case I used to travel with

    if you are looking for one time shipping gig - I'd check what Canada Post charges for ground service for the box with disassembled bike.
