Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
