New here, don’t know if i posted on the correct forum. Anyway, my brother from Sechelt wants to buy a bike from Giant Langley, but they said they can’t ship. They can box it, and a courier can pick it up. Anyone knows a good courier service that can pick the bike from Giant Langley and deliver it to Sechelt? Any idea how much it’ll cost?

My bike is getting delivered via UPS now.

Update. You might want to not use UPS. My bike was placed on HOLD today due to Covid impact on their business. 

It was supposed to be delivered yesterday. At 7pm they delayed it until today. Then at 11am today they put it on hold with no delivery date specified. Trucks are not getting unloaded at the main hub in Richmond so stuff is just sitting there and not getting sent out for delivery.

My Jenson order last week also sat with UPS in Richmond for a bit over a day. The package was delivered the day after the scheduled delivery date, and the tracking never updated to 'Out for Delivery.'

I am sure your bike will show up soon.

It sat in Richmond from Friday night (estimate of first delivery Monday) until Thursday. It was delivered (like yours) by surprise on Thursday eve with no update in advance.

Might just be worth the day trip to save potential headaches?
