Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends 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).
