Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
