Bike Box Hire – protect your bike

Dave got that terrible sinking feeling as he watched helplessly as the airport baggage handlers dropped his flimsy cardboard bike box onto the tarmac. On top of which it was now raining heavily – how long before it turned to pulp…?

Get your bike there and back in one piece with Bike Box Alan!

Please read the details down below on rates, location and availability. Thank you.


We have a bike box which is available for bike box hire. Are you are off to ride the Etape, compete in an Ironman or tackle the mountain passes of Italy with your friends? Seen the way aircraft loaders bounce your luggage onto the aircraft at the airport? We can rent a bike box to you to safely pack and transport your bike onto an aircraft and onto your destination. It is a Bike Box Alan bike box, so it is tough and as safe as it can be for transporting your bicycle on a plane. There is plenty of space for extra kit including pump, helmet, shoes, basic repair kit, protein powder and clothing. This bike box was awarded Editor’s Choice 9/10 by 220 Triathlon magazine in a group test.

Pricing –  3 days (long weekend) £40, 7 days £60, 2 weeks £100. Check availability on 01903 214956. COLLECTION FROM WORKSHOP ONLY.

You can collect it from here in Lancing and it is available for the weekend, week or longer. We require two forms of ID. We recommend you book it as oversize luggage in advance, get to airport a bit earlier than normal and have zip ties handy to lock the safety clasps shut for the flight out and return. We also recommend if you hire a car at the destination to make sure to ensure the bike box fits in the boot.
