Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can 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 shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping 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).
