Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally 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 parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping
