“Our new blue bike shipping box is great because it lasts for more shipments than a cardboard box,” said William Alcorn, BikeFlights.com’s Owner. “We’re also proud to be working with Garten Services to distribute our new blue box.”

Garten Services, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports people with disabilities in their effort to contribute to the community through employment, career, and retirement opportunities. Garten is handling box storage and order fulfillment.

It’s self-locking flap design eliminates the need for external straps and fasteners – simply seal the box with standard packing tape. When not in use, the box collapses flat to save space and store easily.
