Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
