Bike Box Hire NI

Taking your bike with you on holiday is a great experience, but taking your pride and joy on an airplane is fraught with risks.

Airport baggage handlers won't go out of their way to damage your bike, but they won't go out of there way to treat it nicely either.

Good bikes can cost many thousands of pounds. Well designed, well made, hardshell cases start at about £500, hard to justify if you only use it a couple of times a year.

The solution? Hire a bike box. From only £5 per day!

PLEASE NOTE: Bookings are not confirmed until checkout is completed. Until such time the box you're reserving will still be available to others.

ALL BOOKINGS REQUIRE A £100 CASH REFUNDABLE SECURITY DEPOSIT AT POINT OF COLLECTION

Why A Hardcase?

Seriously? Have you ever seen the baggage handlers loading and unloading the hold of a plane?

Baggage handlers have one goal: To load and unload an aircraft hold as fast as is humanly possible. Luggage is thrown, slide, stacked and dragged, and that's on a good day. On a bad day? well, let's not go there!

Be honest; the only reason anyone uses a soft bag is because they're cheap. But hey, that doesn't matter to you. You're smart, you're not buying, your hiring ;-)

Our boxes, supplied by

You're hiring, not buying, so it makes sense to get the best, so hire one of our Bonza Bike Boxes!

Yes, OK, the name a bit odd, are they Australian? Nope. So why the name? No idea. But name aside, the Bonza is about the best bike box money can buy.

The Bonza Bike Box 2 is a strong and rigid bike travel case designed to protect your bike when travelling abroad. Made from HDPE (High-density polyethylene) anti-impact material, this box offers a high level of protection far superior to that of other hard cases on the market using traditional ABS plastic. The main difference being that unlike ABS, this box will not crack under impact. 

Featuring high-quality internal foam padding and velcro retention straps, you can be assured that your bike will not be damaged on the inside either. The lockable catches are incredibly strong, keeping your bike safe and secure, with the ability to lock each down. While the easy-glide wheels make navigating through a busy airport a breeze. 

Despite the already tough construction, Bonza has developed an anti-crush technology in the form of two support struts. These act as a backup should the case sustain a large side load impact, preventing the bike from being crushed even if the HDPE outer casing fails. 

The Bonza Bike Box is built to accommodate all makes, models and sizes of bike, this case is exceptionally versatile, while still conforming to all the latest airline baggage handling restrictions.

If the box is not returned to us for any other reason we will retain the full security deposit and make a claim against you to recover the full RRP of the box, presently £499.99 (October 2018).
