BikeFlights.com provides resources for education and solutions for labeling and shipping battery-powered bicycles.
BikeFlights.com ships Class 1 and Class 3 pedal-assist e-bikes with batteries installed within the continental U.S.; we do NOT ship e-bikes with batteries installed to or from Alaska or Hawaii or internationally.
We also do NOT ship throttle-equipped e-bikes.
For reference, here are the four classifications of electric bicycles (e-bikes) according to the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association (BPSA).
BikeFlights.com adheres to all rules and guidelines per the U.S. Department of Transportation, the International Air Transit Association and UPS’s Dangerous Goods Department.
E-bikes shipped with their batteries installed via BikeFlights.com MUST be packed by someone with a current HAZMAT certification applicable to safely preparing e-bikes for shipping.
If you don’t have a current HAZMAT certification, you can ship your e-bike with battery installed with BikeFlights.com per the following options:
To ship your e-bike without HAZMAT certification, you must REMOVE its battery and ship the battery separately though another carrier since BikeFlights.com does not do battery-only shipments.
Without its battery, your e-bike will ship just like a non-motorized bike. We suggest shipping your separate battery directly with the United States Postal Service (USPS), UPS or FedEx.
