Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
