Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be 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 package, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

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