Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have 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 container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
