Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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