Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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