Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
