Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire 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 you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide 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 can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation
