Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on 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 move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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