Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
