Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
