Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally 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 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges 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).
