Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t 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 can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
