Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
