Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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