Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will 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 you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (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 remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping
