Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not 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 often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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