Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). 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 putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – 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 the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
