Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure 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 wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb 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 ship the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
