Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
