BBOH: Professional Assembly

For those who don’t live near one of our stellar certified Xtracycle dealers, getting a professionally assembled Xtracycle cargo bike might seem like a challenge but rest assured! With our Big Box of Happiness program, you can get that same level of pro assembly delivered right to your front door.

So how does this Big Box of Happiness direct delivery program work?

It’s super simple! At check out, the Xtracycle website will let you know your delivery options. Based on your shipping address, if you are close enough to an Xtracycle dealer, you will have the option to have your bike delivered to the dealer’s shop and assembled there. If you reside outside of a dealer area, you will be given the option for Big Box of Happiness, or what we often refer to as BBOH. Now all you have to do is wait for an email from us to arrange your shipping delivery date!

While you patiently await your new ride, our in-house bike assemblers will get to work on building up your dream cargo bike, accessories and all. Our experienced staff has all the right tools and a 71 point safety inspection check list so you can ride with peace of mind knowing all i’s were dotted and t’s crossed.

Once your bike has completed its post assembly inspection, we’ll carefully strap it down to a pallet, pad it in all the right places, and cover it up with our namesake “big box”. Once your Big Box of Happiness is ready to go, the delivery truck will come pick it up to bring it directly to you!

What is the cost of this stress free service, you may be asking. The BBOH fee of $400 includes a flat $200 professional assembly and $200 shipping fee. Regardless of how many accessories we install or how costly the delivery fee might actually be, all BBOH orders are a flat $400 assembly + shipping fee so you know exactly what to expect at check out!
