Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). 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 you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
