Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
