Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box 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 placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best 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 (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as 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 transport the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping
