Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during shipping 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 decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

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