Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least 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 wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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