Sending your MTB

Hi,

Has anyone ever used a courier to send a bike?

If so would you mind sparing 2 minutes to complete this 'SurveyMonky' questionnaire?

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TGJZMCD

I am a young entrepreneur trying to get some feedback from MTB lovers before I embark on a new business.

Thanks in advance to any of you who take the time to answer the questionnaire, it's really appreciated!

Emma

    Can't do it, as I've never sent a bike by courier I can't answer any of the 'when sending' questions.

    Rather an ill thought out survey I'm afraid.

    Are you genuinely looking to embark on a new business or is this another college/uni course that requires you to tick the 'customer survey' box?

    Totally useless survey. Requires answers even if there is no option.
    One option doesn' even have a button to push.
    And ?
    "1. How often do you use a courier to send a bicycle?...
    .
    .
    .
    Never (Please explain why)"

    Er um, like er well because.....

    Must try harder.

    I wouldn't trust some hairy arsed van driver to carefully transport my valuable bike and trust the distribution centre not to "loose" it.

    He asked people who had previously sent bikes by courier to fill in the survey. Did you not bother reading his post?

    Dammit, just the point I was going to make!

    Thing for me is that bikes are expensive, stealable, fragile items. If I use a courier I just want it to get there safely.

    But the survey itself included questions asking if you'd never used one. So some confusion maybe.
    Still a rubbish survey, whichever way you cut it.

    Done it and compared to some of the lazy arris shite surveys you get on here it seemed all good to me. Hope the lass makes a go of it I wouldnt trust the likes of most of the couriers to transport a bubble wrapped brick never mind a comparitively fragile think like a bike.

    My only concern would be how much care they'd take of my bike and what guarantees of that that they offer. The survey didn't offer anything along those lines, it was all speed cost etc.

    It's bollocks (wrinkled dangly things) anyway. Unless they had a fleet of dedicated trucks etc it's not happening.

    And I guarantee there's not enough money in it for that.

    So would have to use the general rubbish couriers anyway.
