Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
