Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping as 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 want to find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is 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).
