Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

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