Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
