Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
