Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other common 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 transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport 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 acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
