If it is a good bike buy/aquire a bike box from a local bike shop.  I think a bike box should fit pretty neatly into the top of a tri wall.  To get it in a box at least one crank will probably have to come off and the bars will need to be turned sideways.  If you don't CMTT MOAB boxes you should be good for weight unless it is a steel full suspension walmart bike.  Air Canada charges $50 per leg for a bike which is reasonable.  FEDEX is a fair 3rd choice.  You can get an online quote from them.

CMTT is supposed to/should deliver it during one of their freight runs. Now wether they run your CMTT's different?!Or if you have the means to get it yourself. thats another question. In Cold Lake Greenwood and Shilo. We Delivered.

Do they have Kijiji where you're being posted? Pretty soon nobody's going to bother moving anything anywhere when you can buy stuff from other people for five cents on the dollar.

CMTT from family
« Reply #28 on: September 07, 2011, 12:15:33 »
Hello, I have a question concerning CMTT and couldn't find an answer (or recent enough) through search.
I am posted in BC, had my move done already, will be posted this winter in Halifax, driving my car, so I will need winter tires.  I have them at my parents house (didn't bring them because they were useless here and didn't have space for them), could they ship them through CMTT from a base near them to my base? 
I was told previously to try through the Family Resources centre but they said they were not dealing with that kind of shipment.

Thank you

If you've already had your "initial move on enrollment" (essentially been reunited with all the stuff you put in storage when you left for BMQ/BMOQ) then you are basically SOL.  On posting, you are only allowed to move your stuff from the last place you were moved at public expense (which would now appear to be Esquimalt).  Based on what you've posted and my assumptions, your only options now are:

1)  have your parents ship your tires (at your/their expense) to Esquimalt to be in included with your HG&E going to Halifax;

2)  wait until you get to Halifax and have your parents ship your tires (again at your/their expense) to you there; 

3)  ship everything you can from Esquimalt in order to leave space in the car so you can pick them up on your way across; or

4)  buy new tires.

CMTT is not a free shipping service for military personnel to use anytime for anything.  It primarily exists to move CF materiel around for CF missions.  Although one of those missions can be to ship personal belongings for those entitled to it, there are caveats which you don't seem to qualify for in this case.
Sure, apes read Nietzsche.  They just don't understand it.

Thank you
We already looked at other options like bus, but I wanted to see if their was a quicker and safer way through military.
I could picked them on my way to Halifax, it was more for safety consideration I wanted to have them installed before I drive across in case I hit a snow storm...

Thank you for your answer

CMTT tracking/contact
« Reply #31 on: September 10, 2012, 20:32:37 »
Tried searching on google but couldn't really find anything.

How do you track your CMTT package using the tracking number and/or contact CMTT to inquire about your package?

Yeah, CMTT isn't like FedEx. If you call CMTT at the base it's heading to, and give them the tracking number they may be able to find it.

You need the TCN for the shipment, it is an alpha numeric code in the following format WA 2123 00 001 the TCN stays with the shipment from start to finish, the WSBL (waybill number) would look something like TC 12 3456. If you don't have one of these numbers, it can be hard to trace. The only way to trace this is through the NMDS system that your local CMTT/MDC use.

No point starting a new topic.

Recently posted to CFB Halifax Stadacona.  MY CMTT form does not have a contact number, although I at lease have a tracking number, for where my UAB is being delivered and my CoC has no idea either, oddly enough.  I've called CFB Shearwater CMTT through Google references and they gave me a nonexistent phone number to the Dockyard where I suspect my kit might be.  Can anybody please provide me with a number or location for where my UAB might be?

Regards

Items Restricted in Shipping UAB - CMTT
« Reply #35 on: March 14, 2018, 23:54:03 »
I've searched and can't find the answer to this. I'm on IT and being posted back after several years. I have a personal firearm that I would rather ship in CMTT than bring in my vehicle. It's partially dismantled and locked in a case. Can I ship it with CMTT?

Any other restrictions on CMTT? I'm assuming my mountain bike is ok? Probably anything flammable/corrosive/reactive/underpressure is not permitted? Thanks.

How to get kit CMTT?
« Reply #36 on: September 19, 2019, 13:10:51 »
Hello.

I want to CMTT my kit home after course.

My course butts right up to Xmas leave and I'd like to have my army gear shipped back to my home base (cross-country) after course; while I go down the road from course to spend xmas with my family who are within a few hours drive, without tripping over a barracks box full of army gear for several weeks while I am on leave.

I figure I can do without 95% of my gear for the last week and just deal with the rest and bring it home with me through a cheapo value village suitcase. I'd like to just haul my barracks box down the road to whoever and have them take care of it for me. Likewise; I can live without it for a few weeks when I get home after leave.

But who do I see to make this happen and how do I get it done?

Thanks for your time.

Have you talked to your course staff? On every course I have been on they have been the point of contact between the soldiers and CMTT, or give the CMTT section on the base a call and explain the situation. I would say go through the course staff first.
All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us... they can't get away this time.
