Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
