Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping 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 hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
