Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike 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 find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost 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 unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
