Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, 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 bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle 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 parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container 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 transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
