Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
