Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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