Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Another 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 box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – 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 the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
