Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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