Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
