Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally 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 cm. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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