Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length 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).
