Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally 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 secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping
