Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
