How to buy a Voodoo Bizango (with shipping to Denmark) ?

Hey,

I really want the Voodoo Bizango bike and I have tried for days to find it and email some stores. The problem is that e.g. Halfords do have the bike, they just don't want to ship it outside of UK. I have offered them to pay for all the expenses, but they never reply to that. So the questions are:

1) is it somehow possible to get it shipped from e.g. Halfords? E.g. through some other company?
I can see that e.g. https://www.luggageforward.com/bike-shipping-service/ offer to send it for 150 dollars. Thats totally fine with me, but does anyone have experience with them?

2) Is there some other place where I can buy it AND get it shipped to Denmark.

    Try these

    Though I think they are part of the same company. Worth a try

    Thanks for your advice. I already tried to contact them, but never heard back from them...

    There is a halfords store in Dover, how about making a trip to the UK, we're having unusually warm and dry weather, $150 should cover most of the fuel, train, ferry.

    Alternative if you know someone in UK who could post it, that should work, or someone on forum who you can trust to do it. I've picked up and posted bike but right now have censored going on so that I can't do.

    Don't know about the company you list.

    Is there no alternative you can get locally, $150 is a significant amount to throw way, it's not like there is anything special about this bike. Make sure you you get correct size frame.

    Contractually they cannot sell the Voodoo’s outside the UK, so you either come here, get a third party to get it for you or buy something else I’m afraid.

    .
    Amsterdam-Newcastle ferry is another alternative. Probably a longer trip as the ferry is overnight, but less driving to do..Plus, you'd get to have a few beers :D There's two Halfords stores within a mile from the ferry port

    Are you sure about that? Free trade across borders within the EU etc etc? Really surprised if those sorts of restrictions are allowable. Happy to be corrected of course!

    Are you after the analogue Bizango or the eBike Bizango?

    Halfords contract with Voodoo limits them to UK sales, EU law cannot prevent them selling cross borders, but their contract can. Same as Halfords can’t sell their Carrera brand outside the UK as the completely separate Italian based company has that right.
