Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least wrap 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 foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
