Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally 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 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing 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 bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
