THRU Launches a New Bike Shipping Service
November 16, 2020
Your Bike. There.
With bicycle sales booming, a new shipping service promises retailers, manufacturers, private sellers and cyclists a worry-free way to get bikes to customers and ride destinations. THRU – from the TriBike Transport™ team – offers fast, reliable, safe and cost-effective shipping, backed by solid bike transport experience, rave customer reviews and the peace of mind of FedEx shipping.
“THRU is a natural extension of our business. We have a long heritage of transporting bikes through TriBike Transport – plus, we’re all cyclists,” said Marc Lauzon, Founder, and President of THRU. “We listened to the cycling community and heard loud and clear their concerns about damage, steep pricing and lacking customer service associated with transporting their treasured bikes and felt that we have the expertise from years of experience to address their needs.”
Initially, THRU will offer a pack-and-ship service for customers in North America. All customers need to do is pack the bike, print a shipping label and the rest is left in THRU’s capable hands. THRU will arrange pickup and ensure the bike is delivered safely to the customer or ride destination.
“Our mission is to help make the outdoors more personal for everyone and provide the most reliable and comprehensive shipping solutions in the world with true and honest prices,” said Lauzon. “Whether in the cycling business, racing an event or planning a leisurely ride on vacation, THRU will offer a bike transport option tailored to your needs.”
Ship a Bike, Plant a Tree.
Like most cyclists, THRU is highly conscious of the impact we are all having on the environment – and that includes shipping bikes. THRU takes its responsibility in preserving the planet and protecting the outdoors and cyclists’ adventures for years to come very seriously, which is why it has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every bike shipped. “When you ship a bike with us you will become a tree parent,” said Lauzon. “As your tree matures, it will have the potential to more than offset the carbon footprint of shipping your bike, not to mention, you’ll be helping to preserve the forests that so many of us enjoy on our rides.”
Stay tuned for even more services to be offered by THRU!
