Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
