Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
