  68. I want to send my bike to erode through train. Could you please tell me, how much will it cost?

  69. You didn’t specify from where you are transferring bike ? It completely depends on distance that your bike travelling in train. Approximately I could say Rs.1500 – 2000 from Chennai to Erode. You need pay that in railway ticket counter. Also you need pack before you take to the railway station for bike packing it will take Rs.250 – Rs.500. You can also ask local transport to transport your bike like KPN, where they will also pack the bike and parcel it to your destination. The cost will be more less same +200 -200 between train and bus.

  70. We hope RC Challan would be enough to transport bike in train. But we highly recommend you to go railway station with these documents including insurance of bike and ask them whether is it possible to parcel bike with these documents. If they said ok then take your bike to railway station and parcel it. Since it is new bike, make sure bike is well packed before transporting.

  71. If the train starts from Talcher road and ends at Hawrah. Then it is possible to transfer the bike before a day. else you got an other option where you can take the bike in train with you. That you can do it on the day of the journey. But we highly recommend you to go to parcel railway station office and verify the details one day before the Journey. So that you can get prepared for next day journey.

  72. I have to transport the my Hero maestro scooter from Kanpur to ghaziabad. Currently I don’t have the insurance papers. Please tell me whether i can transport the bike Hero Maestro scooter in train. Also please let me know the full cost for transporting it from Kanpur to Ghaziabad

  73. Cost for bike transportation is completely depends on distance. And We think you cant transport bike without insurance. RC + Insurance book photocopies are must. Please enquire about this in nearest railway station. Also it would be great if you share it over here, so that it will be useful for the people.

  74. I would suggest you to go directly with the bill to take the transported bike.So that you no need pay any money for the worker. If you ask someone like labor then they will ask for charge.

  75. Sorry Vishnu We are not sure about it.But from my view you will not have any problem. But please enquire it nearest station before taking your bike over there for transportation. But to parcel in bus we are sure that there will not be any problem to parcel bike.

  76. Yes! if train routes are available then you can transport bike. It’s not necessary that you should be there to take the bike. You just need to courier the paid bill for bike parcel to him. He can show that and get your bike.

  77. Perfect information Thanks for this helpful data. With this information i have transported bike to my friend.

  78. To transport bike from the source point (i.e) Boarding Station you need RC Book & Insurance Paper of the Bike . For receiving the bike at the destination station you don’t need to have RC book & Insurance paper. You just need to have bill given at the train station counter for bike parcel.

  79. I don’t think you can’t change bike from train to train. But you can do one thing. You can book bike parcel to the intermediate station as destination point from the source railway station. From the intermediate book again the bike parcel to your destination station. But before doing all these make sure that the intermediate railway station has the bike parcel service.

  80. You should enquire that in the nearest railway station reservation counter. They will give all the details. If your destination station, is not big then it will sent to the nearest big major popular station. Then you need to collect it from the bike.

  81. Yes anybody can send bike with RC book & insurance. But while receiving the transported bike you need to have that receipt with you. Ask them to courier the bill to your address so that you can collect the bike with the bike parcel bill. Make sure they are taking photocopy before sending it.

  82. No you must the receipt/bill which was given to your father during bike parcel at the station counters. Ask him to courier it so that you can collect the bike. while receiving the bike , insurance will not an problem.

  83. Bipin you can take a unreserved open ticket. So that it will be acting as a confirmed ticket and you can travel in train along with you bike on unreserved quota. Hope this information will be help to do parcel.

  84. If you taking directly in Mumbai with the bike parcel bill/receipt. No need to pay anything. But if you giving to some people like porters then you need to pay for them. Cost will be calculated based on distance + packing charges

  85. I am willing to transport my bike from Mangalore to Secunderabad . My bike weight is about 120kgs. May I know the whole cost to transfer?

  86. I have a query, I have purchased new bike so it will take around 20-30 days for RC copy to come. I just want to ask that is RC copy is compulsory?

  87. You need to pay like for the distance bike going to travel in train. Other than this before you parcel the bike, you must need to pack your bike. For that you need to pay to third party vendor not to Indian railways.

  88. Sorry for delay reply..To parcel your BSA Ladybird , It’s good to transport by bus than by train. When you give to private vendors like KPN,Sharma service will be always good. Before doing parcel make sure you well packed your cycle. so that it wont be get damaged.

  94. No Shilpa. We don’t have any. It would be better enquire at the counter than to enquire in Phone. Usually Government staff may not attend or will not answer your bike parcel queries properly in mobile phone.

  95. Debasmita, No documents are needed other than Insurance & RC book. Bike will be packed so you no need to worry about number plates. But Make sure you are not getting caught by traffic while driving the parcel bike from destination station.Estimated Time will be based on train availability to the respective stations.

  114. I am Nisha, I booked a parcel from Howrah to Coimbatore on 12th September , Today 7th Day ,it has not been received by the concern person. Coimbatore parcel agents saying it has not reached to Coimbatore yet.
    Can you please help me find out where the parcel is?
    PWB No. – 541237

  115. Nisha, Usually it will take some extra time to reach the destination station because there will not be frequent trains to parcel bike from source to destination. So in your case Howrah to Coimbatore will not have frequent trains. I hope you will receive your bike parcel with a week. Please let us if you have not received still after a week.

  116. Sure we will help you to parcel bike from Chennai to Panvel.

    1. It depends on distance, you can enquire that in the railway counter.
    2. Packing charges will depends on area. If it is Chennai then it will cost around Rs.200 – Rs.400
    3. It better to book bike parcel before two days so that it is very easy for them to parcel bike easily on the same train.

    Hope We have provided are sufficient. Kindly let us know if you need any more help further.

  117. No you cant do bike parcel like that. Only thing you can do is you can parcel from Nashik to Mumbai. Then again you need to collect bike parcel in Mumbai and again you need to do an new bike parcel from Mumbai to Vaddara. So you need some person to be there near the station to collect and send it back. Also it would be difficult we might not know at what day the bike arrives.

  118. Hello Prem. Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to ask you 1 question.

    How much time does the whole procedure take? I mean do we need to book the bike first and they will send it whenever there is a slot free for the transportation (As parcel) or do they send the vehicle on the same day. Should I need to drop the vehicle in the railway station for transportation.

  119. hi Prem, Parceled Bike is missing. I am not getting proper information from KR Puram railway parcel booking office and the station Master is ridicules about information. My name is C N R Raghavendran Kotha. I booked my bike (Pulsar 150 cc AP37 BH 9153) from Pune junction to Krishnarajapuram(KJM) on 26-09-2016 along with my railway ticket PNR NO : 8538635067. BIKE PARCEL LUGGAGE TICKET NO : B630893. I booked my bike along with my ticket parcel fair 2300/- . When I arrived Krishnarajapuram next day in luggage couch my bike is not available but in Pune booking office person said we are booked we don’t have any more information about my BIKE. Please inform how can i approach them. Please find my details below. they are just simply saying to wait for other two more days.

  120. Usually they will keep it in the railway station. If it is intermediate station they will keep it for about a week, after that they will transfer it to the main railway station. You can show the bike parcel bill and collect it from there

  121. Yup you can go some private parcel service like KPN etc… where they will transfer your bike from Hyd to Howrah. IF you still want to use bike parcel service in train then you need some person in Howrah to collect the bike and again get a new parcel bill and transport the bike from Howrah to Bhagalpur.

  122. Raghu I could understand your problem and the situation you are in. First Question, Whether have you seen your bike loading into train that your traveled from Pune? Some times , By mistake there are chances for transporting your bike to other destination. From the content i could understand that railway station master told to wait for 2 days. I would request you to do the same , wait for other one week. If the transported bike from Pune is not arrived then ask them take a complaint on the same. Also call railway help line and ask them what to do for this ? they will guide in a proper manner. Please do write to us if you still have issues with the transported bike.

  123. The whole procedure will take at-least half of your day. If your destination station is main station then they will send it whenever there is a slot free for transportation. If not you need to book the bike parcel as luggage and you need to carry along with you. I would highly recommend you to go before a day and enquire all the details so that you will get an rough idea on it.

  124. For few destination there will not be parcel service available directly through railway stations. At the time you need to do bike parcel as luggage.(i.e) You can take it as luggage along with the same train you are travelling. So you can get a confirmed ticket or open ticket from railway reservation counter and travel with the same.

  125. Yes! It’s compulsory to have valid Insurance for bike to do bike parcel. I would suggest you to take and transport the bike. To ride bike in the destination city , any way you need to take bike insurance. So I would request you to take immediately as soon as possible.

  126. Usually if you not taking the bike from railway station for a week after delivery. Then it will bike will be parceled to main station. You need to go and collect bike from there. There will not penalty or late receiving charges for the same.
