BikeFlights.com Simplifies E-bike Shipping



PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BikeFlights.com is excited to announce that it has made it easier for people to ship bikes with batteries, including pedal assist e-bikes.

Enhancements to BikeFlights.com's website help the company better serve cyclists who want to ship bikes and gear with batteries, including pedal-assist e-bikes and standalone batteries.

Thanks to enhancements made to BikeFlights.com's web interface, cyclists are now prompted when booking to indicate whether their shipment does or doesn't include batteries and if so, whether those batteries are contained within components and gear, are part of an e-bike or are standalone. The answers let BikeFlights.com better direct its customers to appropriate shipping options that are in compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation regulations.

Effectively immediately, certified e-bike shippers now get their labels for e-bike shipments within a few minutes - just as they would for shipments of bikes without motors and batteries. BikeFlights.com does not assess a Hazmat fee for shipping complete e-bikes; however, a $40 Hazmat fee does apply for standalone battery shipments.

"The demand for shipping e-bikes is only going to keep increasing, and this is great news for our e-bike shipping partners," said BikeFlights.com Owner William Alcorn. "They can now ship more efficiently and save money."

BikeFlights.com customers who ship complete e-bikes or batteries must be certified e-bike shippers. Customers may contact BikeFlights.com Support to get certified. Certification is open to businesses and individuals, costs $150 and takes only a few hours to complete.

Cyclists who do not have e-bike shipping certification may still ship e-bikes with BikeFlights.com; however, they must do so through a certified e-bike shipper. They may contact BikeFlights.com Support to be connected with certified partner shops.
