Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation 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).
