Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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