Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship 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 bike ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to 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 protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
