For bikers who want to book their motorcycles as parcel in train.
You can book your bike as parcel in train is two ways.
1) As parcel: book in advance it will take its own time to reach, no ticket required.(Between 3 to 7days)
2) Along with ticket: if you traveling in same train, you can take your motorcycle with you. Bit costly and
quicker compare to first one. (Comes along with you in same train)
For both types of parcel you need to make sure petrol tank is empty and pack the bike with Gunny bag. And mention source and destination places on piece of cardboard, which should be clear and visible. Fill the application along with source and destination address, make of vehicle, registration number, weight of vehicle, cost of vehicle etc.
As Parcel without ticket, you need to book in parcel office timings that’s between 9AM to 5PM. And taking delivery also in Parcel office working hours. They charge less compared to Parcel along with ticket. But it might take anytime between 3-7 days.
Along with ticket is 2nd option, where you need to do parcel booking option 2-3 hours in advance to your train's actual departure time. Show the ticket and book the bike. They send the bike along with you (Parcel wagon) in same train. You need to make sure whether the bike is loaded in parcel wagon and placed in good position. Its not compulsory but to be on safe side, you need to pay Rs. 30-50/- to porter and make sure its loaded. If you go one hour early to departure you can check yourself.
Documents needed for booking the bike.
Bike Registration Certificate in Xerox & train ticket Copy. Some times they may ask you License for identity proof.
And one Important thing which I learnt from my trip. Owner of the Bike (on whoms name the bike registered) and person who traveling Name should be same. Railway people check the RC copy and train ticket copy. I have taken my cousins bike, while going I didn't have any issues, but while coming back I’ve seen the hell. Waited for 4 hours begging them to book the bike. At last d paid 600/- extra as bribe and booked the bike.

I would like to use the second option, that i will be travelling with my ticket.
1. Do i need to go 3-4 hrs before departure to parcel the bike & submit all my formalities.
2. In this case how much would they charge completely.
Thanks for posting & replying.
