Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in 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 bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
