Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
