Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is 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).
