Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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