Please note that our Premium Protection Plan applies only to contents of a shipment, not to their containers (cases). Also per our Shipping Policy, all claims of damage or loss are void if “You did not ship in one of the cases listed in the drop down menu on our website.”
Bikes shipped in Scicon cases are typically damaged in one of three ways: 1) Tubes are subject to internal contact with the wheel’s hubs and/or other external objects through the case’s soft padding; 2) Handlebars, which remain installed during transit, do not sustain the lateral loads to which they are subjected during normal shipping conditions; and 3) Axles, dropouts and derailleurs are damaged as a result of the design of the mounting mechanism within these cases and/or because derailleurs are not removed prior to shipping.
Additionally, you cannot ship this Scicon case with BikeFlights because it exceeds the maximum allowed size:
Aerocomfort Tandem Bike Travel Bag.
The maximum size package that you can ship using our service within the U.S. is 165 inches (419 cm), and your package cannot have a length greater than 108 inches (274 cm). The maximum size package you can ship internationally is typically 157 inches (399 cm) or less and varies by country.
