Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
