Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do 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.

Price of bicycle shipping

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