Bicycles

Bicycle transport category 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 ought to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

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