Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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 (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
