You can book your bike as parcel in train is two ways.

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.
