Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
