Folks, Need to bring a bike and a bullet from Tirur to Chennai. Malappuram will be the nearest boarding point for busses from Calicut to Chennai. Had anyone did this recently if yes which operator?
If not possible from Malappuram will drive to Palakkad. Hence appreciate details from Palakkad as well.
Cheers!

Why don't you book them on a train? They'll arrive in far better condition than loaded onto the roof of a bus.

They don't load bikes on roofs anymore (at least the majority of them). They go in the hatch below the passenger cabin like this:

@treadmark: Why don't you try KSRTC? They seem to have bike transport facility on nearly all of their routes. Check out the above website for more info.

Would it not be better to check the lorry transport services like KTC. I assume you will be able to do it from Tirur itself. I sent a bike from Bangalore to Calicut via KTC.

4-5 days if I remember right. Had to pay a little extra for them to completely pack it.

Check with Kallada. They might carry your bike in their Volvo. You will have to travel in the bus though.

Kochi - Bangalore, 2nd June 2017
Atlas Travels - Lemon Bus, Scania Multi Axle

Booked online and showed Vyttila as only pickup point at 9pm. Called their office and requested for boarding from Pipeline junction. Scheduled pickup was at 9.15pm but bus arrived at 9.35, thanks to continuous rains. It was the Trivandurm - Bangalore service which stopped at Karukutty for dinner and entered Trichur town for pickup. Easy drive and reached Madiwala at 7.30am.

Bangalore-Kochi: 3rd June
Padikkal travels, Volvo multi axle

Scheduled departure was at 8.50/9pm (?). Bus left Madiwala at 9.30 and arrived Pipeline Junction at 5.40am, a true non stop service.

Most of the days I see Evacay volvo near Vyttla at 5.35am and Padikkal just behind it.
