Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
