Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should 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 (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

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

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
