Bike Transportation from home to the beginning and from Santiago to your house.
From the website of Bicigrino we coordinate always the transportation of bicycles contacting with the most efficient companies and which provide better service to transport bicycles from Santiago de Compostela to the address of the bike-pilgrims, and also to transport bicycles from home to the start of the Way of St James or any other cyclist routes that you want to do.
In shipments within the peninsula for very reasonable prices you can send your bike from home to the start of any route, always with the direct support and advice from bicigrino. We alse transport bicycles from the Balearic Islands, Portugal and international destinations.
On the website of the contract of transport at the VIRTUAL STORE you can see the prices for every transport and path.
Buying the travel voucher through the online shop of Bicigrino you will not have to worry about anything and you just have to give your bike to our representatives as you enter Santiago, being safely and properly packed, and from there it will travel to your home.
Our bike transport service is based on the experience accumulated over several years of operation. For us the most important is quality of service and efficiency, so the bicycles will be transported always neatly packed in cardboard boxes and always with an insurance policy to give extra safety to service.
Transportation price includes the bicycle itself and if you want, you can also send a pair of saddlebags and helmet in the same package.
The managing of this transport is made by reservation through the VIRTUAL STORE OF BICIGRINO, you will simply have to access the web and pay a small amount of the price of the transport on advance, we will provide you by e-mail the information on coordination of transportation once you arrive in Santiago de Compostela. It is recommended to deliver the bike upon arriving in Santiago and stay calm to make the arrangements for the pilgrim's office or anything you might need. With this management besides coordinating the delivery of the bike to your house, you will not have to worry about your beloved travel companion and you can walk by Santiago quietly.
How works the transport to the beginning of the Way?
After ordering the transport through the virtual store of Bicigrino, the transport system from home to the start of the Way works like this:
In case that the bike can be delivered at any of our shelters or hotels affiliated to our networks BICIGRINO or BICIGREEN, the transport is much easier as the delivery is organized by us coordinatig with some of our stablishments depending on where do you want to send your bike.
However, if you want to send the bike to any other place that is not from our affiliated stablishments, it is also possible but in that case it will be you who have to reach to an appointment with the people on the destination the bike has to be delivered. If you plan to sleep in the beginning of your path it is best to tell to the hotel you will overnight the first night and in most cases they do not have any problem with it. If this is not your case and you do not think of sleeping in the starting of the route, if it is neither a Saturday, or Sunday, or holiday and above all always in a city with offices of the transport company we work, another possibility is to collect the bike at the offices of the company.
It is very important to know that the web shop has no field where you can put the instructions of transport and you have to indicate it at the time of processing the request, in the "COMMENTS" field, always stating: Pick-up, day of collection, delivery location and maximum delivery day.
As for the packaging, say that in Santiago de Compostela we have everything needed to pack and transport bikes because we have much work there and carriers are ready to pack bikes, but from home to the beginning of the Way or route what we do is send the carrier in your area, and they are not accustomed to transport bicycles so they may not have boxes to pack your bike, so it is advisable in these cases to be farsighted and go get a box from a workshop or trusted bike shop. In stores often have empty boxes of the bicycles offered for sale.
The collection day carriers can not tell you the exact time because they use their route to pass by your house when they are in your area ...., if they not find you they will call you to the phone you give us when you buy the service.
Another important thing is that we need a margin of 5 working days to transport the bike to prevent that you arrive at the beginning of the Way before your bike.
And finally clarify that transportation is based primarily for the transport on the Way of St James but bicycles can be sent to anywhere from anywhere.
Now thanks to our partner company in the transportation of bicycles (Seur), you can monitor your bicycle trip through the free application available for iOS and Android devices.
Now also thanks to the collaboration with SEUR can send the bike home in the form of payment on arrival.
This service is very useful for example if you have to leave the bike for an unexpected reason during the course of the Way of St James somewhere other than Santiago and carriers are not available at the time (during public holidays for example), or any other contingency that may happen to you and that forces you to leave your bike in a safe place to retrieve it later. To enjoy this service is very important that you have previously purchased the RESERVATION VOUCHER for transport on the VIRTUAL STORE OF BICIGRINO and that way you will only have to contact us and provide us the information of the collection point, from that moment we will coordinate the transport of your bike and we will take it to the agreed point.
It can also be useful to leave the bike at a hotel or place your trust in Santiago de Compostela and you will only have to communicate the collection point so we can organize the pickup, and thus you do not have to be there at the time of the delivery of the bike.
