Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
