Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure 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. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bicycle shipping

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