Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find 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 bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach 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 be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
