Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bike 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 fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
