Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike 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 parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation
