Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
