Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
